Europe captain Donald relishing return of Ryder Cup roar

Europe’s captain, Luke Donald, believes that the energy of the home crowd in Rome can play a crucial role in their quest to reclaim the Ryder Cup trophy. Two years ago, Europe suffered their worst defeat at Whistling Straits, but this year’s edition in Rome will be different, with thousands of fans from across the continent expected to attend. Donald acknowledges that the Americans will also have supporters, but he believes that the home advantage will favor Europe as they aim to continue their dominance on home soil.

Reflecting on the previous Ryder Cup, Donald admits that Europe did not perform at the required level, allowing the Americans to secure a convincing victory. He emphasizes the advantage of playing at home, stating that the support and energy from the crowd can uplift the players and contribute to their performance. Donald expresses excitement about having more support this time around, as the absence of fans due to COVID-19 was a significant factor in the previous tournament.

On the other side, United States captain Zach Johnson is determined to achieve a first U.S. victory on European soil in 30 years. While Europe has had notable successes in the U.S., the Americans have struggled to convert their higher rankings into enough points to break their away jinx. Johnson acknowledges the difficulty of winning outside of their comfort zone but assures that his team is ready to embrace the challenge and view it as a great opportunity.

The U.S. team for this year’s Ryder Cup is formidable, with three major winners, including Brooks Koepka, Wyndham Clark, and Brian Harman. They also have former major champions and top-ranked players such as Collin Morikawa, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, and Scottie Scheffler. Donald recognizes the strength of the U.S. team and acknowledges that Europe has their work cut out for them. However, he emphasizes the importance of belief in the team’s ability to succeed.

In conclusion, both teams are aware of the challenges they face in the Ryder Cup. Europe aims to use the energy of the home crowd to their advantage and reclaim the trophy, while the U.S. is determined to break their away jinx and secure a victory on European soil. The stage is set for an exciting and fiercely contested tournament.
