The Ryder Cup, the pride of the United States and Europe, begins in earnest.
The Ryder Cup will be held at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club (par 72) in Rome, Italy starting on the 29th (Korean time). Starting with a foursome match on the first day, there will be fierce competition between continents.
The Ryder Cup, which started in 1927, is dominated by the United States with 27 wins, 2 draws, and 14 losses. However, in the early days of the Ryder Cup, only England, not Europe, faced the United States. Since the scope was expanded to Europe in 1979, Europe has the upper hand with 11 wins, 1 draw, and 9 losses.
Moreover, the United States has not won a Ryder Cup held in Europe in 30 years. From the U.S. perspective, this is a very burdensome expedition. Europe is determined to continue the momentum from last week’s Solheim Cup and win the Ryder Cup trophy.
The four-ball match starting on the 29th will feature Jon Rahm (Spain) and Tyrrell Hatton (England) facing Scotty Scheffler and Sam Burns. ‘Young European blood’ Viktor Hovland (Norway) and Ludwig Eiberg (Sweden) will face Max Homa and Brian Harman.
Shane Lowry (Ireland) and Jeff Straka (Austria) face Rickie Fowler and Colin Morikawa, while Rory McIlroy and Tommy Fleetwood clash with Xander Chopley and Patrick Cantlay.
Since it is a match where pride is at stake, the players’ determination is also great. Burns shaved his head in the shape of ‘USA’ ahead of the Ryder Cup. “I asked him to shave the side of his head before I shaved him. Isn’t that funny?” Burns said. Brooks Koepka laughed, saying, “You can’t really see the USA, but it looks much more luxurious.”
The Ryder Cup is also worth watching. Morikawa said, “I arrived around 4:30 or 5 in the morning, and the stands were slowly filling up. They were singing before I even came out of the locker room. I could feel the heat well because the locker room was close to the first hole. I could feel the energy of the Ryder Cup.” .
Robert McIntyre (Scotland) said, “It’s like a soccer team’s locker room. There’s a Seve (Spanish golf hero) shirt hanging on the other side of the locker. It’s really creepy. Isn’t it special? 토토사이트 The best players in the world are competing in a tournament that means the world.”
