Abstract: Mark Twain once defined playing golf as a 'good walk spoiled', yet for psychologists the Ryder Cup between the USA and Europe is worth watching because of the many different elements of psychology at play.From the idea of home advantage through to the stress of competition, psychological factors play an obvious and important role. How might group processes affect team performance? When and how does stress impact particularly on golfers? And what about the fans who will follow the tournament, especially supporters of either team - what emotional and psychological experiences might be in store for them?
