Who is the Captain of the European Ryder Cup?
Henrik Stenson was removed as leader of Team Europe before he left to join LIV Golf, which messed up the team’s plans. But he was quickly replaced by former World No. 1 Luke Donald for Rome. The Englishman planned how to beat a US team led by two-time Major winner Zach Johnson.
Luke had a distinguished career in the game, having won all four matches in which he participated. He also served as vice-captain for the past two games, in 2018 under Bjorn and in 2021 under Harrington.
Donald’s thorough match preparations included a scouting trip to Marco Simone and appearances from all 12 players at the BMW PGA Championship as the Europeans seek to capitalize on home advantage and recapture the title after confirming his team with his six wildcards.
