Steve Stricker named to be 2020 U.S. Ryder Cup captain, report says

By

Steve Stricker will be formally introduced as the 2020 U.S. Ryder Cup captain on Wednesday in Milwaukee, according to a report Monday.

The move to make Stricker a Ryder Cup captain has been widely expected. Stricker has been an assistant captain three times and would be leading the United States in his home state of Wisconsin at Whistling Straits.

The news that Stricker would be the first-ever U.S. Ryder Cup without a major championship victory was first reported by Gary D’Amato of WisconsinGolf.com.

The Americans will be challenging for the Cup they lost 17 ½ to 10 ½ at Le Golf National in Paris last fall. U.S. captain Jim Furyk came under fire after the U.S. lost by Patrick Reed and others for the way he handled his players and pairings.
