The 1969 Ryder Cup And The Finish That Shocked The World

    In 1969, the 42-year history of biennial golf matches between the United States and Great Britain reached its climax. The U.S., led by Jack Nicklaus, had dominated competitive golf for years; Great Britain, led by Tony Jacklin, was the undisputed underdog. But in spite of having lost 14 of 17 Ryder Cups in the past, the British entered the 1969 Ryder Cup as determined as the Americans were dominant. What followed was the most compelling, controversial, and contentious Ryder Cup the sport had ever seen.

Author, writer and blogger, Neil Sagebiel writes about it in his new book, Draw in the Dunes: The 1969 Ryder Cup and the Finish That Shocked the World.
