The Ryder Cup gets underway next Friday in Wisconsin at Whistling Straits, with Team Europe looking to retain their title against their American counterparts. Padraig Harrington’s men face an almighty task next week against a formidable-looking American side.

Europe have won four of the last five Ryder Cups, including the emphatic 17½–10½ victory at Le Golf National in Paris last time out, with their only defeat coming back in 2016 at Hazeltine – which the US cruised to glory.

But despite the US possessing six rookies in the field, Steve Stricker’s side have a vast array of talent at their disposal.

The rookies include two-time major champion Collin Morikawa and FedEx Cup winner Patrick Cantlay, while they have the likes of Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth to count on.

There are eight Americans in the Ryder Cup team that sit inside the current top 10 of the world rankings, compared to just the one from Europe.

However, and just as vitally, that is at No 1, with Jon Rahm coming off an incredible year following his triumph at the US Open. And he came agonisingly close to FedEx Cup glory but bouts of Covid put a huge dent to his hopes.

Meanwhile, Europe also have Rory McIlroy at their disposal and the likes of Tommy Fleetwood, who starred in Paris last time out alongside Francesco Molinari – who missed out this time. And in rookie Viktor Hovland, they have a class player on their books.

So it will be a tight one to call, and the action can’t come quickly enough. Both Harrington and Stricker have huge decisions to make over who to pair with who ahead of play getting underway on Friday.

As always at the Ryder Cup, it will take place over three days from next Friday to Sunday.

A session each of four foursomes matches and four fourballs contests will take place on Friday and Saturday, before 12 single duels will close the Ryder Cup out.
