Ryder Cup: who is the best contemporary golfer?

A European and an American share first place. They both play Callaway...

It is Patrick Reed and Jon Rahm, both equipped with Callaway clubs, who turn out to be the 2 best Ryder Cup players according to us, with only 25% defeats (3 defeats in 12 matches and 3 participations each) .

We have chosen the following method to identify the best golfer of the last 40 years: at least 10 matches and at least 2 editions played, born after 1965, lowest losing percentage.

Even illustrious Ryder Cup players like Olazabal, Garcia and Poulter do less well with 26%, 29% and 32% respectively (when Tiger Woods is at...57%).

Since 1983, 40 years, Europe has won the Ryder Cup trophy 12 out of 19 times, or almost 2 out of 3 times.

If Callaway, Titleist and Taylor Made are the 3 leading club brands, it is Golf Pride in grips, Aldila for shafts and Titleist in balls which are the leaders in their market.
