Ryder Cup 2018: Tiger in Paris, tee times, how to watch and more

It's Team USA vs. Team Europe in France.

Ramsey Cardy

The Ryder Cup pits 12 of the best golfers from the US against a dozen of the best European golfers. It's great theater because it's one of the few times where you get to see golfers acting like teammates, from the matching golf shirts the teams wear to the awkward high-fives they exchange. The tournament takes place every other year, ping ponging between courses in the US and Europe.

The 42nd Ryder Cup begins this week at the Le Golf National golf course outside of Paris. For the first time since 2012, Tiger Woods will compete with Team USA, fresh off of winning the Tour Championship last weekend -- Tiger's first win on the tour in five years.
