Ryder Cup 2012 - Who will win the famous trophy

The Ryder Cup is the biggest event in golf and we are now just weeks away from it taking place yet again as United States of America and Europe go up against each other at the Medinah Country Club in Illinois.

Europe have had the better of the Ryder Cup in recent years, winning four of their last five tournaments.

However, the last time it was played in America, the home team came out on top so will feel as though they have an advantage going into this one.

Both have extremely talented squads and we will be lucky enough to see some of the world’s best players all in action.

Current world number one Rory McIlroy is likely to play a massive part for Europe and will need to be playing some of his best golf if they are to retain the famous trophy.

When talking about USA, Tiger Woods is of course the big name that many still believe is the best around on his day.

At the moment it is the Americans who are the slight favourites to win the tournament, which is no surprise as they will have the support of the crowd and won last time out on home soil.

They can be backed to win the Ryder Cup at 5/6 with Sportingbet.

Europe are then being offered at 6/4 with BetVictor to win their fifth Ryder Cup in six attempts.

Those looking at a betting bonus for there being nothing to split between the two teams and it finishing in a tie - that has odds of 11/1. Should this happen, they Europe would retain the trophy.

It certainly looks to be one of the best Ryder Cups in recent times and really is one of the most eagerly anticipated.

With not long left to go, players will be looking to find form in the next couple of weeks to make sure they go to Medinah Country Club in the best shape possible.

USPGA Championships - Woods the man to beat?

The USPGA Championships gets underway on Thursday and with this being the final major of the year – players are desperate for success.

Also, as this is a Ryder Cup year, form is vital and a win for either a European or American will really set a marker down for the famous competition.

All eyes will of course be on Tiger Woods as he searches for his first major win since 2008. At the Open Championship he finished in joint third position and looked as though he was getting close to his best form.

The American has won this event four times in the past, more than anyone else competing. This all makes him the current favourite to come out on top – you can back him at 12/1 with William Hill.

One thing that is usually the case in these events is that players come from nowhere and challenge for the win, you only have to look at Ernie Els’ victory at the Open to prove this.

After that performance Els is still down at 70/1 to come out on top here.

Rory McIlroy has been in indifferent form this year. He really hasn’t done it in the major tournaments, finishing way down the list in the Open and the Masters and then in the US Open, he failed to make the cut.

However, you cannot write the Northern Irishman off and if he gets a good start, will be a big contender. McIlroy is available at 20/1 with SkyBet to win here.

Then you have Luke Donald, chasing his first major win being offered at 20/1.

Looking at a betting offer for Lee Westwood, he is at 28/1 given his poor form recently.

The likes of Dustin Johnson, Jason Dufner and Adam Scott will all be confident of being amongst the contenders come the final day on Sunday.
