In the tradition of its namesake, every two years the Ryder Die Cup (RDC) pits the most hyper-elite players from the Kendallville Open against those from the Puffers & Duffers league. A central time zone vs mountain time zone battle for supremacy of America's heartland. Rotating between Chicago and Denver, the second RDC takes place September 17-18, 2021, in the Chicago.

Using an abbreviated Ryder Cup format, Friday's round will consist of four four-ball matches played at a location to be determined. The Saturday morning round will consist of four modified alternate shot matches played at Harborside - Port. The Saturday afternoon round will consist of eight singles matches, also played at Harborside - Starboard.

 

Each match is worth one point. The team with the most points come Saturday evening will hoist the Ryder Die Cup. As the defending champions, the Puffers & Duffers only need to win 8 points to retain the Cup, while the tKO team will need 8.5 points to take it back.

The Kendallville Open team consists of the Bixler and RDGC winners, the four top Bixler finishers from tKOXIV, and is rounded out by two captains' picks. Team P&D will consist of the 2020 P&D (North) League Champion, the top five point leaders over the 2020 and 2021 seasons, and two captains' picks.
