The 2008 Ryder Cup, held in Louisville Kentucky, provided corporate clients a chance to meet golf legends up close and personal and experience the thrill of attending one of golf's premier competitions. THG Worldwide, a Marcus Evans company and one of the largest corporate hospitality businesses in the world, hosted a weekend of corporate hospitality events, which included providing clients with a chance to pair up with 12 Golf Pro's, including Bill Rogers, Wayne Levy, Steve Flesch, Ted Schulz, Bruce Fleisher, Mike Hulbert, Joe Inman, Russ Cochran, Tony Jacklin, Mark Carnevale, Chip Beck and Donnie Hammond, for a friendly game of golf the morning before the Ryder Cup competition started. Clients also had a chance to meet other golf luminaries, such as Mark Lye, Tony Jacklin and Fuzzy Zoeller, throughout the weekend.

Guests were invited to stay at either the luxurious Sheraton Louisville Riverside or the Embassy Suites, both located within ten minutes of the Valhalla Golf Course, where the competition took place, as well as The Polo Fields Golf & Country Club, which featured hospitality events in its clubhouse and marquee tent. Several passenger coach buses provided a convenient shuttle service for guests to the hotel and each venue, who were also greeted with bottled water and a complimentary memento bag that contained an official Ryder Cup Ticket Lanyards and Programs, Black Cutter & Buck Ryder Cup polo's and MP3 players courtesy of Circuit City.
