Quiz: Name the Ryder Cup Players since 1993

The 21st Century has seen 95 men’s major championships. How many winners can you name?

 

1993 was the last time the US won on European soil. Can you name all the Ryder Cup players since then in our quiz?

Including both 1993 and the most recent Ryder Cup – at Marco Simone in 2023 – there have been 15 editions of the team competition.

Both sides have been victorious, in close matches and blow-out victories. However, the Americans have now gone three decades without a victory on foreign soil.

24 players get the call when the event comes round every two years, with a total of 360 squad places over the course of those 15 editions in the last 30 years.

Obviously, we’re not asking you to type 360 names in! There are plenty of golfers who have played in more than one Ryder Cup over the last three decades.

Can you name every player to feature in the sport’s biggest team competition since 1993, in our quiz powered by Sporcle? We’ve grouped names by each edition of the Ryder Cup to make it easier.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
