Team Europe will seek to win back the Ryder Cup when they take on the United States in Rome at the end of September. The US thrashed Europe when they last met at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, but the Americans have not won away from home since 1993 and a much-improved European team will hope to maintain that record.
European captain Luke Donald, who took over the reins after Henrik Stenson defected to LIV Golf, already had four automatically qualified picks in his ranks: Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Viktor Hovland and Tyrrell Hatton.
Two more then automatically qualified following the European Masters at Crans-Montana: Scottish lefty Robert MacIntyre who accrued enough points to keep his place atop the European points list, and Matt Fitzpatrick who topped the final spot on the world points list after finishing third in Switzerland.
Donald will then have six captain’s picks to round off the European team.
