Cup, The
by Philip Reid

In his new book, The Cup: How the 2006 Ryder Cup was won, Irish Times Golf Correspondent, Philip Reid, writes the most incisive chronicle of the competition, drawing on his access to the European and American teams, their caddies, the officials, the fans and pundits from the world of professional golf. He takes us onto the fairways, exposing the teams' tactics, and back into the clubhouse, where the players wrestled with personal conflicts and tragedies. The Cup is packed with fascinating anecdotes about the personal tragedies, those pictures, a shooting incident and Tommy the Barber's brush with Boris Becker. Unlike the plethora of similarly themed books published shortly before the competition, The Cup offers the serious golf enthusiast an authoritative and substantial analysis of the 2006 Ryder Cup.



'Europe's smashing Ryder Cup was three days in the making, but Philip Reid has captured the emotion and the drama in a way that will keep it fresh forever'
- Jim McCabe, Boston Globe.
