Europe Breaks Tradition with Back-to-Back Captain

In a major break from tradition, Luke Donald has been announced as the captain of Europe's Ryder Cup team for the 2025 tournament in New York. This marks the first time in 28 years that a captain has been retained for consecutive Ryder Cups. Donald, who led Europe to a resounding victory in Rome earlier this year, will be aiming to match the success of Tony Jacklin, the only European captain to win the event both at home and away.

Strong Home Crowd Expected to Challenge Europe

Despite his previous success, Donald faces a tough task as Europe is set to face a hostile home crowd at Bethpage Black in two years' time. However, the 45-year-old former world No.1 has been urged by his triumphant players to stay on as captain. Following their dominant 16 ½ – 11 ½ victory in Rome, Donald has eagerly accepted the opportunity to become Europe's first repeat captain since 1995.

Donald Reflects on the Ryder Cup and Looks Ahead

Speaking about his appointment, Donald expressed his delight and honor to lead Team Europe once again. He emphasized the significance of the Ryder Cup in his life and the opportunity to create history by becoming only the second European captain to win back-to-back. While acknowledging the challenges of being a captain away from home, Donald stated that he has always embraced challenges throughout his career. He is eagerly looking forward to assembling another 12-strong team and competing at Bethpage in 2025.

The 2025 Ryder Cup will take place at the New York course from September 26-28.
