Samuel Ryder donated a second cup for golf competition but this time for amateur golfers in Africa. This was a consequence of him buying a settlement farm in the former Rhodesia for his eldest daughter and son-in-law.

The author heard that Stratford-on-Avon Golf Club was staging a Pro-Celebrity Golf Day as a legacy of its famous former captain Samuel Ryder of Ryder Cup fame. Accordingly he donated four of his Samuel Ryder biographies as a team prize. He ended up playing in the event and had the great privilege to propose the toast to Samuel Ryder at the dinner which followed.
