The Ryder Cup is one of the golfing world's biggest events, with the very best swingers from Europe and the US facing off for a chance at the prestigious hardware. To make the experience more immersive for viewers, Google has entered this year's Ryder Cup course into Google Street View, and it has also created a purpose-built experience for exploring the course more easily.

The Ryder Cup moves around to different courses each year. This year, the course is the Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota. Though Hazeltine is now available in regular Google Maps, there is a better option for golf fans. In collaboration with Turner Sports, Google released the 'Hazeltine Explorer' as a way to click through and see just what the pros see for each of their shots.

With its easily navigable interface, armchair golfers everywhere can critique pros' choices on the course.
