What could have been assumed is now official: Luke Donald will once again be the captain of the European team, this time in Bethpage Black 2024. Donald has a huge task ahead of him: Win on away soil! It will be difficult, but not impossible.
This great golfer is delighted about the new chance he will have. It must be admitted that he deserved it. Watching the performance of the European team, one could feel that Donald created unity and harmony.
“I’m delighted and honoured to have been given the chance to lead Team Europe in the Ryder Cup once again.
Great opportunities don’t come along very often in life and I’m a great believer that when they do, you need to grab them with both hands – this is one of these moments.
I’ve been fortunate as a player to have had many amazing times in the Ryder Cup over the years and so to add being a winning Captain to that, to form bonds with the 12 players like we did in Italy and to get the result we did, was very special indeed."- Luke Donald said.
Luke Donald: The Ryder Cup means so much to me
Donald will have a chance to become the second European Captain to win back-to-back. During his career, he never shied away from challenges. In fact, Donald was more motivated when he had a more difficult task.
This will be a real test of the strength of the European teams. Whether they can repeat the same this time, or whether the US team will win, remains to be seen.
“The Ryder Cup means so much to me, so to be Captain again and have the chance to create more history by becoming only the second European Captain to win back-to-back is exciting.
There is no question that being a Captain away from home is a tough task.
But I have never shied away from challenges throughout my career and it is precisely the kind of thing that motivates me. I can’t wait to get another 12-strong team to Bethpage in 2025”. - he concluded, as quoted by golfmonthly.com
