The highly anticipated Ryder Cup tournament is set to take place in Rome, with Europe and the USA battling it out over three days of thrilling golf. As we gear up for the action, let's take a look at the richest players on each team.

Team Europe: McIlroy Reigns Supreme

Rory McIlroy, the four-time major winner, tops the Team Europe rich list with a staggering net worth of £200 million. The Northern Irishman is not only the richest player on his team but also the UK's wealthiest sportsperson under 35. McIlroy's wealth has been boosted by lucrative sponsorship deals, including one with Nike. Justin Rose, another Ryder Cup veteran, follows closely behind with an estimated net worth of £30 million. His endorsement deals with brands like TaylorMade and adidas have contributed to his wealth.

Shane Lowry and Jon Rahm Join the Ranks

The Irish golfer Shane Lowry, who won The Open Championship in 2019, has a reported net worth of £18 million. Lowry's success on the course and sponsorship deals, including his role as a brand ambassador for the Bank of Ireland, have helped him become one of Ireland's highest-earning athletes. Jon Rahm, fresh off his victory at the 2021 Masters, boasts a net worth of £16.5 million. Rahm's major wins and endorsements from brands like Mercedes-Benz and Rolex have solidified his spot on the rich list.

Tommy Fleetwood and Viktor Hovland Round Out the Top Five

Tommy Fleetwood and Viktor Hovland tie for fifth place on the Team Europe rich list, both with a reported net worth of £12.5 million. While neither of them has won a major yet, they have achieved success on the European Tour. Hovland's six PGA Tour wins, including this year's BMW Championship, have also contributed to his wealth. Fleetwood's endorsement deals with brands like Nike and BMW have helped him amass his fortune.

Team Europe Captain: Luke Donald

Luke Donald, the four-time Ryder Cup winner, will serve as the captain for Team Europe. With an estimated net worth of £33 million, Donald's performances on the course and endorsement deals have made him one of the wealthiest players in the tournament.

Team USA: Spieth Takes the Lead

Jordan Spieth, a three-time major winner, is the wealthiest player on Team USA with an estimated net worth of £90.5 million. While his fortune pales in comparison to McIlroy's, Spieth has managed to earn a substantial amount through endorsement deals with brands like Rolex and AT&T. He has also invested in English football, purchasing a minority stake in Leeds alongside his Ryder Cup teammate Justin Thomas.

Justin Thomas: Not Far Behind

Justin Thomas follows closely behind Spieth with a reported net worth of £50 million. Thomas, who won his second major at the 2020 PGA Championship, has invested in various businesses, including LivPur Nutrition and fitness brand WHOOP. Like McIlroy, Thomas is associated with WHOOP, along with LeBron James and Michael Phelps.
