Rory McIlroy is one of the most experienced and most important players of the European team at this year's Ryder Cup. There are great expectations from him, considering the qualities and experience he possesses. Years ago, it seemed that the European team did not have such a strong roster.
Looking at the top 3 players; Hovland, Rahm, and McIlroy, it is difficult not to prejudge that the USA team certainly has reason to be afraid. Padraig Harrington recently spoke about the strength of the European team. Harrington believes they have never been stronger.
The Northern Irishman also agreed with such a statement. Rory believes that the mix of experience and youth could be a winning formula for the European team in Rome this year. “Yeah, I would have to agree with that. You look at Viktor end of the season; with what Jon Rahm as has done this year; myself; Tommy Fleetwood back to playing some of the best golf he's played in a while; Tyrrell; Shane; Rosey.
I think you've got a nice blend of experience and youth in the team. ”-the Northern Irishman said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com.
Rory McIlroy: Ludvig Aberg is special
Ludvig Aberg is one of the names on Luke Donald's list that is frequently mentioned in the media.
This young golfer caused a lot of reactions. Many are still not familiar with his qualities and do not know what to expect from him. Rory McIlroy has repeatedly emphasized what a great talent he is talking about. If you have been following his performances lately, you could certainly notice the ease with which this Swede plays.
His results in the last tournaments speak for themselves. “I think everyone who has followed golf over the last few months has known the potential that someone like Ludvig has had. You just have to watch him hit balls on the range at a PGA Tour event.
I mean, he's special, he really is. He's an unbelievable ball-striker. I don't think people maybe from this part of the world recognised it because he's played all of his golf in college and in the States and then played a lot of PGA Tour stuff.
But he came over here and finished fourth in Czech Republic and won in Switzerland. He proved to a lot of people that he's worthy of a pick. I honestly think Luke was going to pick him regardless but he obviously his job easier when he won on Sunday”.
