The format for play on Saturday and Sunday was the same. There were four matches of foursomes in the morning and eight singles matches in the afternoon. In all, 24 matches were played.
Each of the 24 matches is worth one point in the larger team competition. If a match is all square after the 18th hole extra holes are not played. Rather, each side earns ½ a point toward their team total. The team that accumulates at least 12 ½ points wins the competition. If the two teams are tied, the previous winner retains the trophy.
Ten players for the USA and Great Britain & Ireland participate in the event plus one non-playing captain for each team.
