For the third consecutive time, Europe has managed to compete against the Americans of Tom Watson’s team in the fourth season of the Ryder Cup. Around 100 years of history surround the Ryder Cup, a unique competition which pits two continents, separated by the Atlantic sea, against each other  in a test of skill. Praise should be given to Sergio Garcia, who managed to score a creditable point against Jim Furyk, even though the tournament had already been decided.
At the start of the 1920′s, this annual tournament was no more than a casual game between day to day Englishmen. Businessman Samuel Ryder, felt a strong attraction to the event; deciding to finance it and pay each member of the winning team 5 pounds with an added bonus of champagne and chicken sandwiches.
Between 1927 and 1983, the Ryder reveal the stars both in the sunny meadows of North America and in the countryside of the old continent. In recent years, equality between opponents is absolute, though the colors of the markers is a whole different story – blue dominates within Europe. With more than 400 golf courses and 296 thousands federations, Spain is one of the countries with highest golf traditions, also being the most popular tourist destination for fans of the sport; in turn leading way for famous players such as Alvaro Quiros, Beatriz Recari and Rafa Cabrera. It would be in 1985 when golf within Spain began to grow and have a greater international presence, in part thanks to the magisterial actions of Severiano Ballesteros and Jose Maria Olazabal, two giants of the ‘turf’But we should not forget the efforts of public golf courses, the growing presence of the sport within schools, accessibility to golf clubs nor the admirable efforts of summer camps.
In 2016 the Ryder Cup will return to the American continent, to the prestigious Hazeltine Natural Golf Club, where it will be decided whether the locals will regain their glory, or the Europeans will steal the title.

Japan has been focusing on finding spaces well-suited for solar power that might otherwise go unused.

One shot behind the Massachusetts high school senior at that moment were Lydia Ko, another 17-year-old who also happened to be the world's No. On Friday, at nearly the same point in the second round, Khang had faded, but 16-year-old Muni He, a Chinese national transplanted to California, was tied for the 4-under lead. And far from just competing, several female teenagers have triumphed on the LPGA Tour in the last decade, something that has happened only twice in the PGA Tour's 86-year history, most recently when Spieth captured the 2013 John Deere Classic two weeks shy of his 20th birthday.
There are many reasons female teenagers are succeeding where their male counterparts aren't. Wells said a world-class golf swing incorporates virtually every muscle in the body, and even girls as tiny as Li was in 2014 -- 4-foot-11 and under 100 pounds -- are capable of the power explosion the professional game requires. Because of its longer and more successful history, the PGA Tour has had a larger talent pool competing for its exemptions, making it tougher for younger men to break through. So alluring has the LPGA become for young golfers that Alison Lee surrendered a UCLA scholarship after her freshman year to compete on the Tour as an 18-year-old. Many of the youngest phenoms on the women's side are, like Khang, Li and Lee, girls from Asia or of Asian descent. Whatever their motivation, this influx of young golfers is infusing the sport with new opportunities, new diversity, and new energy.

Recently, the United States and Europe returned once again to test each other’s skills, met with the usual audience and expectations that surround the event. After two days of heated competition, Paul McGinley managed to win the duel when Rory McIlroy defeated Californian Rickie Fowler with four ‘birdies’ and an extraordinary ‘eagle’ and then Welsh Jamie Donaldson, scoring the victory point with four games still left to play. This performance of the Spaniard, who still holds his 3rd place in the world ranking, shows us just how elevated the level is at which this sport is practiced in Spain.

And with this gesture, the Ryder Cup was born, even though nobody would imagine just how much the sport would be dominated by the Americans for the next 50 years. But in the decade of the 1980s, Great Britain would allow the inclusion of the rest of Europe – giving the tournament a continental touch. As is always the case, the highly desired trophy changes hands constantly; entertainment is also another ingredient of the Ryder Cup, largely thanks to the contribution of Spanish golfers.
Whichever the case, it is safe to say that Golf is an ever growing sport on this side of the Atlantic. Recently, solar power company Kyocera announced that it was building huge floating solar power plants that covered inland bodies of water like reservoirs, projects that both provided clean energy and were beneficial to the reservoirs themselves.Now, the company has turned their attention to the several abandoned golf courses in the country, with plans to build large solar farms on the land. 2-ranked player, and Morgan Pressel, who at age 18 in 2007 became the youngest major winner in LPGA history. Female golfers from Thailand, China, Taiwan and especially South Korea were attracted to the sport in droves after South Korea's Se Ri Pak captured the Open in 1998.
These golf courses feature large amounts of unused open land, few shade trees and high sun exposure -- all of the things you need for a productive solar farm.The company has just started construction on a 23-MW solar power plant on an abandoned course in Kyoto Prefecture. Lexi Thompson, who has attracted some of the largest crowds at LCC, qualified for her initial Open as a 12-year-old and won her first LPGA tourney at 16 and her first major at 19. In 1926, however, a second tournament would generate a greater audience and fan base, even though Britain once again fended off the visiting team. It's estimated that the average golf course uses more than 300,000 gallons of water a day, not to mention the pesticides and chemical fertilizers that keep the grass green and weed free.Many states including Florida, Utah, Kansas and Minnesota are looking into ideas for repurposing abandoned courses for other uses.
