    Background: BRITISH AND AMERICAN GOLFERS HAVE BEEN GETTING IN SOME PRACTICE ROUNDS AT THE ROYAL BIRKDALE GOLF CLUB AT SOUTHPORT IN LANCASHIRE FOR THE RYDER CUP MATCH WHICH OPENS THERE ON THURSDAY.

    IT WILL BE THE SIXTEENTH TIME THAT AMERICAN AND BRITISH GOLFERS HAVE COMPETED FOR THE CUP, AT PRESENT HELD BY THE UNITED STATES.

    THE UNITED STATES TEAM HAS ALREADY BEEN HIT BY A CASUALTY J.POTT, A MEMBER OF THE 1963 AMERICAN RYDER CUP TEAM HAS BEEN ORDERED TO HOSPITAL WITH A STRAINED MUSCLE AND IS AN UNLIKELY STARTER.

    THE AMERICANS HAD THEIR FIRST GAME ON THE ROYAL BIRKDALE COURSE YESTERDAY (MONDAY) AND A FURTHER PRACTICE ROUND TODAY. THE BRITISH TEAM ALSO HAD A PRACTICE ROUND TODAY.

    THE UNITED STATES TEAM CAPTAIN, MR. B. NELSON HAS ANNOUNCED THAT HIS TEAM WILL BE USING THE SMALLER SIZED BRITISH GOLF BALL FOR THE RYDER CUP MATCH. HE SAID HE EXPECTED CONDITIONS WOULD BE MORE SUITABLE FOR THE SMALLER BALL.

    THE ROYAL BIRKDALE COURSE IS A SPRAWLING 18 HOLE COURSE, COVERING MORE THAN 7,000 YARDS. IT IS REGARDED BY GOLFERS AS A DIFFICULT COURSE BECAUSE OF THE STRONG WINDS WHICH USUALLY PREVAIL.

    THE RYDER CUP MATCH WILL CONSIST OF FOURSOME AND FOURBALL MATCHES ON THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, AND ON SATURDAY THERE WILL BE TWO SETS OF SINGLES.
