The Ryder Cup is a truly unique tournament which connects golf fans from around the world. For one extraordinary weekend, one of sport’s most individual pursuits is transformed into a team game which enraptures the golfing world as continents collide.
As the Official Airline of Team Europe, Emirates was proud to be a part of the 2010 tournament at Celtic Manor which saw Europe regain the Ryder Cup by a single point in dramatic fashion. The event stood out for the outpourings of emotion from golfers competing for pride, rather than prizes. The biennial event is unlike any other in the passion it evokes among spectators and has elevated many of golf’s finest players to legendary status
On September 20th-25th 2012, an Emirates-sponsored European Team brimming with talent will attempt to defend their title on American soil at the Medinah Club in Illinois. With European golf in fine form and American players keen to reassert their dominance of the sport in front of a home crowd, this year’s Ryder Cup promises to be one of the finest in the event’s rich history.
In addition to the Ryder Cup, Emirates is a proud supporter of a number of other golf events around the world, including UBS Hong Kong Open, Dubai World Championship, BMW International Open 2012, Japan Open, WGC-HSBC Champions, Emirates Australian Open Championship, Australian PGA Championship, Austrian Golf Open, Avantha Masters, Ballantine’s Championship, Barclays Singapore Open, Maybank Malaysian Open, Thailand Open, Irish Open and Alstom Open de France.
