Eric Frost, who is on a golfing holiday from Freeland, Michigan, U.S., poses for a photograph as he hits a tee shot on the King's course at Gleneagles in Perthshire, Scotland, August 19, 2014. The Ryder Cup will be played in Scotland for only the second time when the Gleneagles resort marks its 90th anniversary by hosting the eagerly awaited biennial event from September 26-28. Gleneagles was named the best golf resort in the world for the third year running at the 2014 ULTRA awards and follows Muirfield in 1973 as the only Scottish venues since the tournament began in 1927. Europe goes into the event as odds-on favourites, having won five of the last six contests and having not lost on home soil since 1993. The United States, captained by Tom Watson, are without Tiger Woods and are still stinging from the "Miracle of Medinah" when Europe came from 10-4 down to claim a remarkable 14-1/2 -13-1/2 triumph with the greatest singles performance by an away team in Ryder Cup history.
