Wendy Lowry, the wife of major winner Shane, has been spotted in Rome alongside several other Ryder Cup WAGs ahead of Friday's big tee-off. Joining her are Clare Fleetwood, Diane Donald, and Erica Stoll, who is the wife of fellow Irish star Rory McIlroy.
A day in Rome
Wendy, Erica, and Diane were seen enjoying their time together in Rome. The Lowrys and the Fleetwoods have been close friends for a long time.
Great weather in Rome
Temperatures in Rome are expected to range between 16C-29C. Today's overcast conditions are predicted to clear up by Friday.
A friendly gathering
The Lowrys often socialize with English star Tommy Fleetwood and his partner. Their close bond is evident as they were seen beaming side by side.
Captain's faith in Shane
Shane Lowry, a native of Clara, will be looking to prove his worth after being selected as a wildcard pick by captain Luke Donald. Despite being out-performed by Adrian Meronk in 2023, Luke Donald has shown faith in Lowry's abilities.
Tough competition ahead
Team Europe will have their work cut out for them as they face a talented Team USA. Although Europe has home advantage, with the home side only losing once in the last eight editions, the US team has proven to be more dominant.
The Marco Simone Golf and Country Club
The tournament will take place at The Marco Simone Golf and Country Club, which offers a mix of challenging long and short holes. The course's thick rough, blind shots, huge bunkers, and sweltering heat will add to the difficulty. The picturesque castle overlooking the fairways adds to the overall ambiance.
Zach Johnson will captain Team USA, which includes notable players such as Brooks Koepka, Rickie Fowler, Scottie Scheffler, and Jordan Spieth. The team has been further strengthened by the return of LIV Golf rebels.
