Since the first Ryder Cup in 1927, a team from other than the United States has won the Ryder Cup three times in a row only once. That occurred when Team Europe won the 2002, 2004, and 2006 Ryder Cup matches.

Europe could repeat this feat with a win in 2014 as they have won both the 2010 and 2012 matches.
