Here caddies tell of the triumphs and disappointments of Ryder Cup clashes from 1985 to the present. These are the insights and behind-the-scenes stories from the bag-men who were there with the world-famous players. Sam Torrance's caddie recalls the historic putt which gave the first victory over the Americans after 28 years in 1985; Ballesteros' caddie recalls a "different balls" controversy; Bernard Langer's caddie recounts the story of the famous missed five-footer putt which lost the Cup in 1991; and Costantino Rocca's caddie tells of the decisions which helped his man beat Tiger Woods in 1997. Each chapter includes a biography of the caddie and his player, a resume of the match, and a description of the trials and tribulations on the course.
