US holds first Mixed Martial Arts matches at Ryder Cup

Now in its 19th year, the Curtis Cup will be played in Lory in October of 2016.

The competition, according to the Curtis Cup website, is “the oldest amateur golf tournament in the world.”

The event brings together the best players in the world — competing in the game’s amateur ranks — against a team of players from Great Britain and Ireland.

The event has been played in England for decades, though, as other nations have entered the fray. Ireland entered the 2012 competition, and Great Britain and Ireland has featured a team on more than one occasion since its inception.

In addition to the usual heroics on the links, the Curtis Cup also includes other competitions like the all-female Para-Cup, which took place this past weekend.

That was to be the group’s second bid for the coveted event, but missed out due to scheduling conflicts.

The Curtis Cup proved a big hit with the U.S. men, and 2016 will see the first of three Curtis Cup appearances at Lory from October 30th to November 1st.

Here is a look at the first black professional golfer to tee it up in a professional tournament was Alonzo Mason, who toured the U.S. in between 1940 and 1946.
