2002 The Belfry Ryder Cup cap signed by the full American team to incl Tiger Woods, Paul Azinger, Phil Mickelson, Hal Sutton, Scott Verplank, David Toms, Davis Love III, David Duval, Scot Hoch, Jim Furyk, Stuart Cink, Mark Calcavecchia and Curtis Strange (captain), along with assistant captain, Mike Hulbert. The cap was signed by all of the players and given to one of the chef's looking after the USA Team while staying at the Belfry Sutton Coldfield.

The 34th Ryder Cup Matches were held 27–29 September 2002 in England, on the Brabazon Course at The Belfry in Wishaw, Warwickshire (near Sutton Coldfield).

The European team won the competition by a margin of 15½ to 12½, the largest margin of victory in the Ryder Cup since the European team won 16½ to 11½ in 1985, also played at The Belfry. Both teams were tied at 8 points going into the Sunday singles matches. Sam Torrance had put most of his best players out early while Curtis Strange had opted to do the opposite. Momentum swung for Europe and after Phillip Price defeated Phil Mickelson 3 & 2, Europe needed ½ point for victory. The decisive ½ point was secured by Paul McGinley in his match against Jim Furyk after he holed a 10-foot par putt on the 18th hole.
