  1. USA have 6 wild cards they need to pick as many from the last Ryder cup as possible. They haven’t won in Europe for 30 years surely that will end this time around. Europe just don’t have enough good players this time around. Rory, Rahm, Hovland that’s it. Fitzpatrick I guess as he’s a major champion.

  2. Dan Atkins says:

    Amazing video and nice to see Luke finally being captain I’m sure everyone will behind him and team #europe but also good luck to USA too

  3. Pure Legends! It is passion and legacy! (And no greedy liv players)

  4. Simon Huss says:

    Luke will be a great captain, but its total bullshit that stenson isn't there, especially with the 2 faced tours now joining forces with the Saudi regime, they apparently were the most evil corrupt people on the planet, how can the likes of rory now go back on all they said, its disgusting how westwood, poulter and the others have been treated, LIV is a better product in my opinion

  5. Nathan Wall says:

    why is this episode not about zach johnson or called europe's captain or by a 2 part thing wtf. "THE captain"??

  6. Tom says:

    I'm Canadian but a fan of a lot of players from both USA and Europe.
    Which team should I root for this year and why?

  7. Huntsman COC says:

    Second choice, Stenson was first choice. If the best players aren’t going to play on both teams it will be really disappointing.

  8. Luke please pick: Meronk, Fitzpatrick, Straka, Noren, Paul, Siem

  9. miroslav27 says:

    Top Man 👏👏 🇬🇧

  10. Congrats to Luke. Well deserved.

  11. JD Stan says:

    The Ryder Cup will continue to be the most meaningless, overhyped golf event in history, no matter those selfish, over the hill, greedy bastards that took the cash, turned a blind eye, and talked nonsense about growing the game. Shameless…

  12. John Wood says:

    Henrik looks different.

  13. Arthur Ford says:

    Luke should’ve been picked to Captain the Euros from the beginning!

  14. The rebels made their bed etc etc.

  15. Peter Kelly says:

    bad feeling about him I'm afraid. very uninspiring. Also, get off the phone!

  16. Phil Davis says:

    Im sure he will do a great job but he look like he could do with some sleep! Go team Europe!

  17. Robert Hill says:

    They chose their fate by accepting blood money……..

  18. We stand with Henrick..it was dishonorable how he was treated

  19. Paul mason says:

    It's not the Ryder cup anymore. Its the PGA Tour cup. If you can't man up and include LIV players, this will never be the same. Not something I will have an interest in anymore.

  20. Micky says:


  21. Stenson is the captain, not luke donald even tho luke is a great guy. Shame on you team europe for this decision

  22. Shelagh Rice says:

    Liv golfers from Europe deserve what they get they took the money so goodbye

  23. Paul J Cross says:

    I hope Donald and McIroy take full responsibility when they lose….the treatment of Euro Ryder legends like Sergio and Henrik has been disgraceful….

  24. JP says:

    Congratulations, Luke McDonald!

  25. Landau says:

    No mention of Henrik Stenson being stripped of the captaincy and opening it up for Luke?

  26. y’all fr have a whole episode for luke donald
