Follow @ChiGolfRadio Which path will you take to glory? Since it’s a Ryder Cup season and since the Masters is on every year, I thought it was only fitting to throw in a little debate that’s been going on for some years now. That debate is the ultimate golf battle between the Masters and the Ryder Cup. Both very prestigious events and both have major placements in our hearts but which is the best? Sure, the Masters is by far more popular as it’s more familiar to casual sports fans than the Ryder Cup is but they both are very equal in terms of prestige. It’s tough to compare a team event to an individual event but you can make an argument for which one means the most. It’s a tough choice for me but I must say that the Ryder Cup is the best because the anticipation leading up to it and just the amazing rivalry between team USA and team Europe which to me is one of the best rivalries in all of sports. Another thing cool about the Ryder Cup is the fact that it’s not played for prize money but for the glory of it. I also really enjoy all of the great courses that the Ryder Cup gets played on as well. Medinah and Celtic Manor were amazing courses the last couple of times the Cup was being played and 2014′s Cup location is no exception. The team aspect of the Ryder Cup is different from anything in golf and really adds to the dramatic feel that it brings. Oh and did I mention those ridiculously loud crowds that attend? I didn’t? Well shame on me! The Ryder Cup crowds are like college football and basketball crowds and they LOVE their teams. That passion and energy is just unbelievable and it’s why I absolutely love the Ryder Cup. The Masters is fantastic though and it’s a dream of event I’d love to attend. Augusta National is the most beautiful golf course in the world and it’s the one place that many of us dream to visit. I remember when I was interviewing Golf Channel’s Jay Coffin from the “19th Hole” show, he told me that attending the Masters is like going to Disney World and that it’s an absolute dream. He’s right about that too because it really does look amazing and it’s the one course that gives us some of the best memories thanks tot he Masters. Just an unbelievable event and I’m glad we get to check it out every year and watch greatness unfold. So, which event do YOU think is the best?
