The epic competition between the U.S.A. and Europe on Kiawah Island, S.C., in 1991 that forever changed golf’s Ryder Cup from a friendly exhibition to a high-stakes rivalry, is captured in War by the Shore, a 60-minute film by 51-time Emmy Award-winning producer and former president of HBO Sports Ross Greenburg, premiering Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 9 p.m. ET on Golf Channel.
War by the Shore goes inside the ropes on those three historic days in September, with in-depth and insightful interviews with many of the competing players and the captains who led their teams during one of the most memorable Ryder Cups ever played. Contested by the best golfers on either side of the Atlantic on Kiawah’s picturesque and brutal Ocean Course layout, the 1991 Ryder Cup was a spectacle for tournament patrons and television viewers, alike. All were witnesses to a tense, back and forth – not all together civil – affair, filled with miraculous shots and epic collapses.
