The Junior Ryder Cup is a team golf competition between Europe and the United States for junior golfers aged 18 and under. It is based on the men's Ryder Cup and is run by the same organisations, the PGA of America and Ryder Cup Europe.

The 2018 event took place at Golf Disneyland, Marne-la-Vallée, Paris, France on Monday 24 and Tuesday 25 September. The United States won 12½–11½, their sixth successive victory in the event.[1]

Format[edit]

The teams consist of six boys and six girls. The tournament is played over two days of foursomes, fourball and singles matches. There are three boys' matches and three girls' foursomes matches and six mixed fourball matches on the first day. There are 12 singles matches on the second day, added in 2008.

History[edit]

In 1995 an informal match was played between European junior golfers and Central New York PGA Section and area juniors. The European team included 15-year-old Sergio García.[2]

On recent occasions there has been an informal "friendship match" played on the Ryder Cup course after the Junior Ryder Cup but before the Ryder Cup.
