Golf Channel just released that Steve Stricker has been named Ryder Cup Captain in 2020. I am not surprised by this at all. Steve was captain of the 2017 President’s Cup team where the U.S blew out the international team.
Stricker already announced that Jim Furyk will be his assistant captain as they look to take on Paddy Harrington at Whistling Straight.
Honestly, thank god we are playing in the U.S. I think 2018 Ryder Cup showed us that we just can’t win in Europe. Doesn’t matter who is playing or who our captain is. The winning factor is that we are playing on home grass and Stricker will be able to set up the course in our favor.
Until then, GO USA!
