Ryder Cup 2023 overview

After three days of superb gladiatorial fight at Marco Simone exterior Rome, the Ryder Cup is again in Europe’s palms following their 16.5-11.5 win over the People.

Captain Luke Donald impressively led his workforce to encourage one of the best out of Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and the ten different gamers to regain the trophy following their hammering at Whistling Straits two years beforehand.

For the USA, the wait to win on this aspect of the Atlantic may have stretched to 34 years by the point they assemble in 2027, and their botched Italian job reveals that they’re no nearer to uncovering the key to successful on the street.

As occasions proved, the Ryder Cup stays {the golfing} occasion that stirs up the feelings greater than another, each for gamers and spectators, and the one bother is that we now have to attend virtually two years earlier than it occurs once more.

So for these of us who’ve nonetheless not had our fill of all issues Ryder Cup, right here at AMERICAN GOLF, we simply wish to present a little bit flavour about what might occur in 2025, take a look at future venues and run down earlier Ryder Cup outcomes.    

2023 Ryder Cup outcomes:

Friday foursomes: Europe 4-0 USA

Friday fourballs: Europe 2.5-1.5 USA

Saturday foursomes: Europe 3-1 USA

Saturday fourballs: Europe 1-3 USA

Sunday singles: Europe 6-6 USA

Remaining rating: EUROPE 16.5-11.5 USA  

Europe began sizzling on Friday morning, successful all 4 foursomes to kick the match off. From there, the USA had been at all times in bother and it was not till Saturday afternoon that they started to indicate indicators of life. The singles remained tense till the final couple of matches however a European victory was by no means actually beneath severe risk at any level over the three days. 

Participant performances:


Prime marks go to Rory McIlroy for successful 4 of his 5 matches. It wanted some impressed golf from hat-less Patrick Cantlay, with a little bit assist from his caddie Joe LaCava, to stop Rory from having a 100% document. Each single man contributed one thing as Luke Donald acquired one of the best out of his 12 gamers.

Rory McIlroy (Northern Eire) – P5 W4 L1 4pts

Viktor Hovland (Norway) – P5 W3 H1 L1 3.5pts

Tyrell Hatton (England) – P4 W3 H1 3.5pts

Tommy Fleetwood (England) – P4 W3 L1 3pts

Jon Rahm (Spain) – P4 W2 H2 3pts

Matt Fitzpatrick (England) – P3 W1 L2 1pt

Sepp Straka (Austria) – P3 W1 L2 1pt

Nicolai Hojgaard (Denmark) – P3 H1 L2 0.5pts   


Max Homa made a superb debut and was the one American to reinforce his repute over the three days. World No.1 Scottie Scheffler gained none of his 4 matches, whereas Rickie Fowler was the one one of many 24 gamers from both aspect to contribute completely nothing.

Max Homa – P5 W3 H1 L1 3.5pts

Patrick Cantlay – P4 W2 L2 2pts

Brian Harman – P4 W2 L2 2pts 

Wyndham Clark – P3 W1 H1 L1 1.5pts

The subsequent Ryder Cup:

Ryder Cup 2025: Bethpage Black (New York)

After the thrill of Rome, we now have two years to attend till the following match. Europe and the USA will reconvene at Bethpage Black from 26-28 September that yr. Located simply over half-an-hour’s drive from New York’s JFK Airport and heading up Lengthy Island, it is going to be the Huge Apple’s model of the Ryder Cup. And if we thought the group was vocal and partisan in Rome, think about the prospect of fifty,000 New Yorkers cheering on the People as they attempt to win again the cup. Daring, brash, and determined for house success, ear-plugs could also be needed for these simply offended!

Gamers and captains:  

With Justin Rose the oldest participant of both workforce on this yr’s match at 43, each one of many 24 gamers in Rome may have a practical shot at being chosen once more in 2025. For Europe, Luke Donald would be the favorite to get a second time period as captain, firstly for the excellent job he did for this match, however significantly with the scenario surrounding LIV golfers Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood and Sergio Garcia so up within the air. No European captain has performed multiple Ryder Cup match since Bernard Gallacher completed his three-match stint in 1995. However with Ryder Cup legends Poulter, Westwood and Garcia having resigned their DP World (European) Tour membership, the trio will not be at the moment eligible to have the function. That reduces the variety of real looking candidates able to succeeding Donald, as issues stand. If that scenario not does change rapidly, it’s laborious to look past Donald carrying on.

One factor we are able to safely say is that Zach Johnson won’t be getting a second time period as US captain. Positive, Europe outplayed America for big elements of the three days, however there have been questionable US pairings on the primary two days, particularly on Friday morning and a common lack of inspiration emanating from the skipper. Anticipate that to alter in 2025. The whispers across the PGA of America (the American golf physique in command of their Ryder Cup workforce) appear to recommend that they need Tiger Woods as captain.

Guys like Scottie Scheffler and Justin Thomas would like to play beneath the man they grew up idolising. Tiger was a successful player-captain of their Presidents Cup workforce (when the USA play a Remainder of the World workforce) in 2019, however that occasion doesn’t carry the identical kudos because the Ryder Cup, whereas Tiger by no means appeared capable of carry his perfect golf to the workforce matchplay format.

Nevertheless, these points are for an additional day. The Ryder Cup isn’t an occasion that wants hyping up, however for the USA to have the prospect to win it again beneath Tiger, or for Europe to take down a Tiger-led American workforce at an awesome course simply exterior one of many world’s nice cities is a mouthwatering prospect.


Ryder Cup 2027: Adare Manor (Republic of Eire)

The subsequent match on this aspect of the Atlantic might be throughout the Irish Sea because the Ryder Cup returns to the Emerald Isle after a spot of 21 years. At The Okay Membership in 2006, even the good Tiger Woods was so overcome with nerves on the primary tee on Friday morning that he dunked his opening tee shot into the water because the Europeans, led by Ian Woosnam, utterly overwhelmed a weak American workforce.

Located simply exterior Limerick and deep within the coronary heart of the Irish countryside is Adare Manor, the posh lodge and golf course. Constructed within the early 1800s, it was purchased by Irish businessman and eager golf supporter, JP McManus in 2015. The course has hosted two earlier Irish Opens and McManus’ personal all-star pro-am on three events. His pulling energy is such that McIlroy and Woods have been completely happy to tee up within the 36-hole occasion.   

The Irish love their golf, as additionally they confirmed when The Open went to Royal Portrush in 2019 and residential favorite Shane Lowry romped to a six-shot victory, so count on large and educated galleries, if not the assured sunshine that everybody loved in Rome!

Ryder Cup 2029: Hazeltine (Minnesota)

American victories within the Ryder Cup have been fairly uncommon within the 21st century, so that they have determined to return to Hazeltine, the scene of their 2016 triumph. Hazeltine lies within the suburbs of the dual cities of Minneapolis-St Paul, so it’s perhaps not the primary place a vacationer would select to go, though a ticket for the Ryder Cup could be an awesome cause to go to.

Ryder Cup 2031: To be confirmed

The 2031 version of the Ryder Cup might be performed in Europe, however we don’t but know the place. The Telegraph reported just a few months in the past that Camiral Golf (previously PGA Catalunya) was the favorite to get the nod. A brief hop from Girona Airport and with Barcelona round an hour additional south, it’s straightforward to see the attraction to take the Ryder Cup to Spain for a second time, and first since Seve Ballesteros captained Europe to victory at Valderrama on the Costa del Sol in 1997. Plus, the course has staged DP World Tour occasions and their Qualifying Faculty on many events.

Nevertheless, two programs in England even have concepts of their very own of internet hosting it. Luton Hoo, and Hulton Park in Bolton each have very formidable plans centred round successful the bidding course of to carry the Ryder Cup again to England, provided that it was final staged at The Belfry in 2002.

Hulton Park have introduced in English Ryder Cup star Tommy Fleetwood as an envoy earlier than a blade of grass has even been laid on the positioning the place the proposed stadium-course would lie. There’s already an 18-hole golf course at Luton Hoo, however that will be utterly redesigned and revamped in the event that they had been to be named as Ryder Cup hosts.                    

Ryder Cup 2033: The Olympic Golf Membership (San Francisco)

The PGA of America have already named the venues for the following three Ryder Cups, so in a decade’s time, the match might be heading to California for the primary time in 74 years.

The Olympic Golf Membership’s Lake Course in San Francisco may have the honour. It has hosted 5 US Opens, will stage the US PGA in 2028 earlier than getting arguably the most important occasion in golf 5 years later. The Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf and Alcatraz will solely be a bus trip away as one of the best gamers battle it out at a course that overlooks the Pacific Ocean, creating a surprising backdrop.      

The most important drawback for European followers watching on tv would be the time distinction. San Francisco is on Pacific time, which is eight hours behind the UK. So followers should time to burn the midnight oil to observe matches ending someplace between 2 and 3am, significantly on the primary two days!
