In this table the appearances includes players who were in the final team but were not selected for any matches. It does not include those who were initially selected or who qualified but were later replaced. Thus Mitchell (1927), Jolly (1931), Olazábal (1995) and Martín (1997) are excluded.

This table excludes José María Olazábal (in 1995) and Miguel Ángel Martín (in 1997) who withdrew due to injury and were replaced in the team. Martín never played in a Ryder Cup team. Faldo played in 11 Ryder Cups but made his debut in 1977 for Great Britain and Ireland.

In the 19 contests from 1979 to 2016 there have been 144 appearances by players from Great Britain and Ireland (an average of 7.6) and 84 by those from Continental Europe (an average of 4.4).
