Introducing the U.S. Team: A Ryder Cup Capsule


Sep 19, 2023

The U.S. Ryder Cup team is comprised of six of the top 10 golfers in the world, all of whom are ranked no lower than 25th in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR). With such a deep pool of talent, they are determined to retain the cup they won at Whistling Straits in 2021. However, the United States has had a less than stellar record in recent Ryder Cup tournaments, with a 3-7-0 record since 2000. The last time an American player won the cup on European soil was in 1993.

The 44th Ryder Cup tournament will be held from September 29th to October 1st at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club in Rome, Italy. In order to provide a closer look at the home team, there is a video available that provides relevant information and eligibility details for each player on the U.S. Ryder Cup team.

One spotlight is on Scottie Scheffler, who has proven himself to be one of the best tee-to-green players in the world. However, his putting has been a weakness, ranking only 150th. He had a successful Ryder Cup debut in 2021 with a 2-0-1 record.

Windham Clark is another player to watch, as he had a breakout year in 2023 with a U.S. Open win. However, his accuracy off the tee may be a concern on a course that prioritizes precision over power. He had a 0-2-2 record at the 2014 Palmer Cup.

Brian Harman, the recent winner of the British Open Championship, will have the opportunity to prove himself once again on European soil as a member of the U.S. Ryder Cup team. His accuracy off the tee and strong short game make him a valuable asset.

Patrick Cantlay brings his winning record to the team, with a perfect 3-0 record in team events. His versatility allows him to play with any partner, but he has found success with Xander Schauffele.

Max Homa is a rising star in the world of golf, with five PGA Tour wins in 2021. He had a perfect 4-0 record at the Presidents Cup and will look to continue that momentum in his Ryder Cup debut.

Xander Schauffele is a consistent player who recently secured his spot on the team with a runner-up finish at East Lake. He has a 2-0 record in team events and has been playing consistently well throughout the season.

Jordan Spieth, a veteran of four Ryder Cups, brings a wealth of experience to the team. While he hasn’t won a singles match yet, he has proven himself in team play.

Collin Morikawa, despite not having the best season by his standards, has shown his skills with top-25 finishes in all three playoff events. His strong iron play and clutch performances make him a valuable asset.

Brooks Koepka, a five-time major champion, is known for performing well on the biggest stages. His swagger and fearlessness will be valuable assets to the team.

Sam Burns’ proficiency in putting and match play makes him a valuable member of the team. Though he struggled with his approach shots this season, his putting skills rank high.

Rickie Fowler has made a comeback after a period of swing issues and lack of confidence. His recent success on the Tour has earned him a spot on the team.

Overall, the U.S. Ryder Cup team is filled with talented and experienced players who are determined to bring the cup back home. They will face strong competition on European soil, but with their depth of talent, they have a good chance of success.
