How the Ryder Cup was won

Thomas Bjorn guided Europe to an unforgettable victory at Le Golf National. One year on, he gives us the fascinating inside story of how they did it
 

We don’t need to remind you of what happened when Thomas Bjorn led his European side out for the 2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National.

Despite not having lost at home since 1993, Bjorn’s team were underdogs heading into the week.

But thanks to meticulous planning and the outstanding performances of the 12 men sent into battle by their Danish captain, the Americans were demolished.

A lot more went into the week than may have met the eye and the captain along with his active team of vices, pulled the strings in an incredible team effort.

Now, one year on from the momentous week in France, the Dane has revealed to us from a behind-the-scenes standpoint how the Ryder Cup was won.

A fascinating insight into his work ahead of the event, the roles of the vice-captains and the advice that he would give to 2020 captain Padraig Harrington.
