Local Life

Samuel Ryder is a man to admire. Founder of the Ryder Cup, one of the world’s most premier golf tournaments, he made millions by simply packaging garden seeds into small envelopes and selling them for pennies. A practical genius, he was also a golf fanatic. In 1927 he commissioned the Ryder Cup Trophy to be made from gold and serve as the winning symbol of his tournament, pitting American golfers against the British. The scores of every Ryder Cup since 1927 are engraved on the trophy’s base.

The famous trophy is currently on tour in anticipation of the 2016 Ryder Cup Tournament to be held at Minnesota’s own Hazeltine National Golf Course, September 27–October 2. It will make a stop at PGA–MSP today from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. In addition to opportunities to take your photo with the trophy, there will also be games and refreshments. The non-traveling public is also invited to attend. Click here to register!
