Robert Karlsson named Vice-Captain of Europe's Ryder Cup team

European Captain Padraig Harrington has named Robert Karlsson as his first vice captain for The 2020 Ryder Cup against the United States at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin next September.

The 50-year-old Swede twice represented Europe in The Ryder Cup – including partnering Harrington twice in foursomes at Valhalla in 2008 - and he will return to the backroom team in the biennial contest having been vice captain to Thomas Bjørn at Le Golf National in 2018.


European Ryder Cup race begins in Prague

The race to automatically qualify for the European Team for The 2018 Ryder Cup gets under way this week at the D+D REAL Czech Masters, and captain Thomas Bjørn is looking forward to seeing how all the contenders perform over the next 12 months.

This week’s tournament at the Albatross Golf Resort, in Prague, is the first European Tour event where players can earn points in their quest to make Bjørn’s 12-man team for Le Golf National next year, when Team Europe will aim to extend its impressive recent record on home soil against the United States.


USA thrashes Europe 17-11 to regain the Ryder Cup

The United States ended their long wait for the Ryder Cup crown, beating Europe by a massive 6 point margin at the Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota this weekend.

The US team had a three-point lead heading into Sunday's round of 12 singles matches. The European team briefly threatened to make a match of it with the Americans in the early going on Sunday, racking up a quick three points in the morning rounds and pulling even in the overall tally.


America thrash Europe in Junior Ryder Cup

Despite a valiant effort in the singles session, Europe were beaten 15½ -8½ by their United States counterparts in the tenth edition of the Junior Ryder Cup at Interlachen Country Club.

Some early momentum was provided by Kristoffer Reitan, who edged a high-quality encounter with Davis Shore, and Frida Kinhult, who secured a half point to remain unbeaten, but the strength in depth of the US team proved pivotal as they won the final day 8½-3½.


Europe firmly in the hunt at the Junior Ryder Cup

Europe will need to overturn a two point deficit on the final day of the 2016 Junior Ryder Cup if they are to lift the trophy for the first time in a decade.

Having halved the morning foursomes session 3-3, Europe lost the mixed afternoon fourballs 4-2 and so trail their American counterparts 7-5 after a blustery day at Interlachen Country Club in Edina, Minnesota.
