Ponte Vedra holds unique place in Ryder Cup history (PGA) [Yahoo! Sports: September 15, 2014, 6:47 pm]
If you mention the name "Ponte Vedra," the normal response is usually "TPC Sawgrass" or "home of the PGA Tour." But what if the 1939 Ryder Cup hadn't been canceled?

The area is known now as a golfing destination, but 100 years ago, it was the location of the National Lead Company's strip mining operation. PGA professional Jim Howard is the director of golf at the place now known as Ponte Vedra Inn and Club, and he's researched the history of the Ocean Course, which was going to be the site of the 1939 Ryder Cup on Nov. 18-19.
