Director of Golf — MICHAEL MOSHER

For me, nothing can match the thrill of watching a Ryder Cup live – it really is a once-in-a-lifetime experience not to be missed. After a thrilling European victory in Rome, Team USA will be seeking revenge on home soil which is sure to be another thrilling contest.

The Ryder Cup is globally renowned as one of the most competitive matches in sport, and to watch this historic event live is an opportunity that can’t be missed. The best of the best are put to the ultimate test in a match that demands pure determination, skill, and devotion to the game. Although the players put on an unforgettable performance, the crowd is what makes the Ryder Cup so special, and you can be part of the action in 2025. Come join me!

Mike has hosted golf tours all around the world for over 20 years. His passion for the game and life is contagious and he ensures everyone on tour has the best possible time. He can even help you with your golf game on tour in need!
