About this blog
- 1 Sep 06, 03:39 PM
Welcome to BBC Sport’s Ryder Cup blog.
We aim to provide daily news, views, behind-the-scenes gossip and anecdotes from the highly-prized biennial matchplay tournament between Europe and the United States, from 22-24 September at the K Club, Straffan in Ireland's County Kildare.
But the build-up to the much-anticipated transatlantic contest has already started.
Our bloggers include Five Live's Iain Carter and Jay Townsend, providing his unique American angle, while Matt Slater and Rob Hodgetts will be your eyes and ears at the K Club. To find out more about them, check our About the authors page.
For the uninitiated, blogs (or weblogs) work like this:
The most recent posts appear at the top of the page. And at the bottom of every entry are two links:
• "Permalink" allows you to bookmark a particular post, or to send it by e-mail to a friend
• "Comments" invites you to offer your reaction to that entry, or read those of others
Comments are what set a blog apart from a traditional column because they create an immediate dialogue between the audience and author. Our contributors will be reading and responding to some of your comments and acting on some of your suggestions.
On the right-hand side of the page, you will see a calendar and a list of authors. Click on a date to see that day's items or on an author to view only his or her contributions to the blog.
You can also use an RSS feed of this blog. For more information, please visit our help page.
Please keep your comments clean. Those which fail our house rules may be removed. If you see a post that is inappropriate, alert us by using the "complain about this post" link and we will act accordingly.
And do try to keep your comments short and relevant to the posts they answer. We will reject off-topic posts because we want to keep this blog focused on the Ryder Cup experience. Readers looking for broader discussions on other golf issues should visit our message boards.
That's it - we hope you enjoy the Ryder Cup blog and look forward to talking to you.
