In a few weeks, we will have the opportunity to watch the Ryder Cup, and the excitement has never been this great. There is a lot of quality in that tournament, considering that the biggest names from Europe and the US are coming to play in Rome.

Zach Johnson's Ryder Cup picks have generated a lot of interest. Many wondered what the list would be like. Judging by the reactions of many, it seems that the majority are satisfied. However, there are some names that unexpectedly appeared on the list.

Jon Rahm, a popular golfer, doesn't understand why so many are protesting. “I’m assuming Justin Thomas got picked, that’s what people are maybe trying to create a buzz about,” - Jon Rahm told, as quoted by!

Judging by Rahm, none of the names are there without a reason. Perhaps one name could be debated, but regardless, Rahm believes that each of them deserves a place. “I mean, there’s no surprises there. I would have been able to tell you 11, that 12 spot was maybe between three players.

You could make an argument for each one."

Jon Rahm also does not understand why there is so much noise about Burns, who obviously has quality. Burns is a golfer who has shown his class many times.

However, some believe that he did not deserve a place in the team this time. Rahm disagrees with such statements. “I’m not surprised that Sam got picked, he’s been playing great the last few years. Maybe not his best year this year but he did win the Match Play though”.

The Ryder Cup in Rome this year will be a real spectacle. The teams are motivated like never before, and this competition will be bursting with quality.
