8.01am 20th July 2009 - Travel

The Ryder Cup ticket is now recognised as one of the hottest in sport – on a par with the Olympics, the football World Cup and Wimbledon – and golf fans have only the two weeks remaining until 31 July to sign-up for the initial ballot for 2010.

Full details on how to apply are available on and the computerised random lottery draw will take place in August.

Thirty years ago Seve Ballesteros and Antonio Garrido made golfing history by becoming the first players from Continental Europe to play in The Ryder Cup. Since then the popularity of the biennial match between Europe and the United States has boomed and history will be made again next year when The Ryder Cup unfolds for the first time in Wales at The Celtic Manor Resort, City of Newport, from 1-3 October.
