Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm are both determined to win the Ryder Cup for Team Europe after missing out on victory at The Open. Rahm finished tied for second at Royal Liverpool, while McIlroy finished tied for sixth. McIlroy expressed his motivation to win the Ryder Cup after the disappointment of the 2021 event. Both players are focused on finishing strong for the rest of the season before representing Europe at the Ryder Cup in Rome.
The European team is expected to have some changes compared to the previous Ryder Cup, with five players now competing in the LIV Golf League. However, Rahm is confident that Europe will have a strong team. He emphasized the importance of performing well in the 18-hole matches and believes Europe has done a good job in the past.
On the other hand, Brian Harman’s victory at The Open has boosted his chances of making the Team USA Ryder Cup. He is currently in the automatic qualification spots, along with Scottie Scheffler, Wyndham Clark, and Brooks Koepka. Zach Johnson, the captain of Team USA, has a strong pool of players to choose from for the Ryder Cup.
The qualification process for both teams is ongoing, and the final lineups will be determined closer to the event. The Ryder Cup will take place from September 30 to October 2, and it can be watched exclusively on Sky Sports.
