Ticket registration for the next Ryder Cup in France is open - but you need to be quick...
By SCG Newsdesk
CAPTAIN Thomas Bjørn leads Team Europe against the Americans in the match at Le Golf National in Paris as Europe look to win back the trophy they lost at Hazeltine last year.
And the only way you can be there to watch the action is to create an official Ryder Cup ticket account at rydercup.com/tickets
Fans have until the beginning of September to create an account, before tickets go on sale on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. As well as the match days from September 28-30, tickets for the three practice days from September 25-27 will also be available.

Thousands of fans made the journey to Gleneagles in 2014 to get behind Team Europe as they claimed their third consecutive victory.
Demand amongst the European contingent is expected to be high once again when the Ryder Cup returns to mainland Europe for the first time since 1997, when Seve Ballesteros led his team to victory.
Bjørn knows a thing or two about the passion and intensity of the Ryder Cup, with three appearances as a player and four as a vice-captain already under his belt.
The Dane, who was the first player from his homeland to be selected for the Ryder Cup, is in no doubt about the role supporters play in the event.
“One of the things that makes the Ryder Cup so special is the passion for this great contest from the public,” he said. “Fans play a huge part in the success of the Ryder Cup, and nothing in golf is more exciting than feeling that support from the crowd at a home match.
“With the ticketing process now open, it reminds us all that the next 18 months will pass by before we know it. I know that fans around Europe will be as excited about the match as I am and I urge everyone to register for tickets and get behind the team.”
