How Does Ryder Cup 2023 Work?
The Ryder Cup operates with players competing in matches, where each match awards one point. Here’s how it works:
- Day 1 (Friday): The event features 4 foursome matches (players take turns hitting the same ball) and 4 fourball matches (each player plays their ball, and the best score counts).
- Day 2 (Saturday): Once more, there are 4 foursome matches and 4 fourball matches.
- Day 3 (Sunday): This day showcases 12 singles matches, where each player competes individually.
On the first two days, the captain of the home team determines when to schedule the foursome and fourball matches—morning or afternoon. To secure the Cup, a team must accumulate 14½ points out of the total 28 available, while the defending champion retains the Cup with 14 points. All matches can extend to a maximum of 18 holes.

2023 Ryder Cup Preview
This Ryder Cup is the 44th edition, and it’s the 22nd time Europe faces the United States instead of Great Britain and Ireland. The United States defended the trophy after winning 19-9 at Whistling Straits, but their last European soil win was in 1993 at The Belfry.
Captain Zach Johnson completed his 12-player Team USA on August 29th, including Sam Burns, Rickie Fowler, Brooks Koepka, Collin Morikawa, Jordan Spieth, and Justin Thomas. The six automatic qualifiers for Team USA include world number one Scottie Scheffler and 2023 US Open winner Wyndham Clark.
Each day has one session of fourball and one of foursomes. The final day has 12 singles matches. In fourball, two teams of two players compete, counting the lowest score on each hole to win or halve ties.
Foursomes also have two teams of two, with players taking turns to complete holes. The same scoring applies. On Sunday, singles matches pit U.S. players against Europeans.
Each match (four-ball, foursomes, and singles) is worth one point. The first team to reach 14 1/2 points wins the Ryder Cup. Ties result in half a point for both teams and if it’s 14-14, the defending champion keeps the trophy. The last tie was in 1989, with Europe winning.

What is the ‘Envelope Rule’ at the Ryder Cup?
In the Ryder Cup, each team’s captain chooses one player to sit out during the final session of matches if the opposing team has an injured player, the player in the envelope substitutes and earns a half-point.
Due to COVID-19, the rule now includes four names, with one player designated for injury substitution and three for COVID-related substitutions. This rule allows the tournament to adapt to unexpected situations.
