TEAM EUROPE.

Ryder Cup Team Europe

Thomas Bjørn.

The European selection has enjoyed extraordinary success in recent Ryder Cup history. Since 2002, Europe has won six of eight editions with its incredible team spirit. However, it is the USA who will contest 2018 as defending champions. Thomas Bjørn is faced with the task of reclaiming the Ryder Cup as captain. The Dane has a remarkable record. He has contested five Ryder Cups (three as a player, two as vice captain) – and Europe won every time.
 

He wants to continue this streak in Paris in 2018. Bjørn’s team started their qualifying campaign in August 2017 at the D+D REAL Czech Masters, and will end it after the 2018 Made in Denmark. The top four players on the European Points List (based on the European Tour results) will qualify, as will the top four players on the World Points List (based on the world rankings), who did not qualify via the European Points. Team Europe will be rounded off with four wild cards available to Bjørn.

TEAM USA.

Team USA

Jim Furyk.

Apart from Phil Mickelson, no USA player has contested the Ryder Cup as often as Jim Furyk. As captain, Furyk, who is known for his eccentric swing, is faced with the task of claiming his country’s first away victory in the Ryder Cup since 1993. However, at the victory in 2016, it appeared that the days of the Americans going it as lone fighters rather than as a united team are over. If things stay the same in 2018 – which is to be expected from Furyk –, it promises to be an incredibly exciting duel.

The qualifying period for Team USA got underway in August 2017 and will end after the PGA Championship, on 12th August 2018. Eight players will qualify in this period, via a ranking list. Furyk will award his four wild cards. He will select three players after the Dell Technologies Championship on 3rd September 2018, he has until after the BMW Championship (9th September 2018) to make his fourth captain’s pick.

THE VENUE.

THE VENUE.

The 2018 Ryder Cup will be held at “Le Golf National”, an exclusive golf club near Versailles, just outside Paris. Play will be on the Albatros Course, which has also hosted the French Open since 1991. The extensive Albatros Course is perfect for the Ryder Cup and its many spectators, with its large number of natural grandstands. And the course is very demanding to play on.
It has the character of a links course, as well as corresponding bunkers and undulating fairways. This and the slick greens require extraordinary precision. The four final holes, on which victory is usually decided in matchplay are spectacular. There are water obstacles on all four holes, which provoke dramatic match situations.
