Before 1991, the Ryder Cup was a sleepy event that garnered spotty interest—especially in the United States. But the matches contested between the American and European teams on Pete Dye’s Ocean Course September 27-29 of that year marked a true turning point for the tournament, effectively putting Kiawah Island Golf Resort on the pro tour map (and on every serious golfer’s bucket list). This September marks the 25th anniversary of the War by the Shore Ryder Cup at Kiawah Island’s Ocean Course.
To honor the 25th anniversary of that pivotal showdown, you can relive every edge-of-your-seat moment as The Golf Channel rebroadcasts their War By the Shore feature on Tuesday, September 20, 2016, at 3pm. (Don’t forget to set your DVR!)
The 1991 Ryder Cup will also be showcased in The Golf Channel’s special, Golf’s Greatest Rounds, airing one day earlier (September 19) at 8pm and midnight. If you just can’t wait to see each gripping play-by-play, watch our Challenging Moments, Memorable Victories video below.
Also, watch for the August 23 premiere airing of “Golf’s Greatest Rounds” on The Golf Channel at 8pm that prominently features the 1991 Ryder Cup at Kiawah.
