  1. The Golfers Rap (video excerpt) From: ZanZclan

    The Golfers Rap was written to attract the younger generation to golf as a sport in a quirky style we can all relate to, with the added coincidence that the writer Ysanne aka Zan (who came up with the original concept for the song & video), lives in the town of the birthplace of the Ryder Cup, and has family who play golf and live near the Celtic Manor where The Ryder Cup is being played this year on the 2010 course!

    Also meeting Peter Fry the author of “Samuel Ryder — The Man behind the Ryder Cup” who makes a cameo appearance in the video and whose book launch coincides with the release of ZanZclans’ song and video.

    Coincidences come in 4’s with ZanZclan with the rapper having prior to having heard anything about this song had designed a “Mr.TwentyTen” t-shirt – check it out at

    Please contact us by email if possible.
    My husband is a grandson of Ruby Ryder, daughter of James Ryder and cousin of Joan, Samuel Ryder’s daughter. (My husbands’s mother has died but the other two of Ruby’s children survive. Theyare in their eighties. They often talk about the days when the family had wealth and was able to donate the Ryder cup!

    We would love to hear from you and to learn more from your research about the family history.

    Yours sincerely,

    Janet Wilson

  4. Hi

    I have been reading about Samuel Ryder and was curious if I was related to him at all. I thought at first it was a long shot (excuse the golf pun) but then I read that he grew up in and around Manchester, where I was born and where a lot my family still live. I wonder if anyone has any further insight into this? I cant seem to trace his family beyond his daughters.
