Golf’s Ryder Cup: The United States is favored to defeat Europe.
No. 2 In the biennial competition this weekend in Sheboygan, Wis., Dustin Johnson and the 12-man United States team are favored to reclaim the Ryder Cup from No. 1 Jon Rahm and the Europeans.
The 43rd Ryder Cup, which was postponed by a year due to COVID-19, will air on Golf Channel and NBC from Friday to Sunday. Whistling Straits Golf Course is a 7,390-yard course that runs along two miles of rough Lake Michigan shoreline.
Johnson told reporters on Wednesday, “It’s been a fantastic week.” “I’m excited about it.” I believe we have a very strong team, but we will need to play well in order to win.”
The links-style lawns, which are based after some of the best courses in the United Kingdom, do not allow golf carts. The land is also home to imported Scottish Blackface sheep.
At the par-71 competition, twenty-four players will compete in four-ball, foursome, and singles play.
Rahm told reporters on Thursday, “There are a lot of players on our team that have a lot of experience and know how to get it done.”
“I am prepared to join that group.”
Johnson, No. 3 Collin Morikawa, No. 4 Patrick Cantlay, No. 5 Xander Schaufele, No. 6 Justin Thomas, No. 7 Bryson DeChambeau, and No. 9 Tony Finau make up the American team. Brooks Koepka (10th), Harris English (11th), Jordan Spieth (13th), Daniel Berger (16th), and Scottie Scheffler (21st).
Thomas told reporters Tuesday, “We have 12 amazing players and they have 12 unbelievable players.” “It really comes down to who will go out and grab it and execute it the best.
“It’s all about who makes the putts, flips the matches, grinds out the halves, and finishes the job. I’ll fight alongside these 11 other guys.”
No. 14 Rahm Team Europe is led by Finland’s Viktor Hovland and Northern Ireland’s No. 15 Rory McIlroy.
The English players in the squad include No. 19 Tyrrrell Hatton, No. 24 Paul Casey, No. 27 Matt Fitzpatrick, No. 35 Lee Westwood, No. 37 Tommy Fleetwood, and No. 50 Ian Poulter.
