Luke Donald: “US, Tiger Woods fundamental”


The process of approaching the Ryder Cup 2023 continues, which is now less than seven months away. Rome, with the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club of Guidonia Montecelio, is ready to receive the biggest event on the greens that has ever been hosted on Italian soil: there will be the prodrome of the Italian Open in May with some of the facilities for the Europe-USA challenge already assembled (the stands of hole 1 are going crazy on social networks).

Luke Donald, statements

Thus the European captain, Luke Donald, to ANSA, on the Rahm-McIlroy duo who are fighting for world leadership: “They are not only special champions but also two ambassadors of European golf. Firm and essential points for the youngest. Continental golf is having a great time, I’m confident“.

A good word also comes from Francesco Molinari and Guido Migliozzi: “Chicco is a leader and in the recent Hero Cup he once again showed his value as well as the peculiarities he boasts in match play format events. Migliozzi, on the other hand, has great talent and knows how to handle pressure. Throughout the qualifying period he will follow them closely. Edoardo Molinari’s statistical support is essential but he will also play an important role, with the other vice-captains Thomas Bjorn and Nicolas Colsaerts, in relations with the players. And his presence, as an Italian in Italy, will be an added value “.

Clearly, the role of Tiger Woods remains to be understood, and Donald is well aware of this: “They are very strong and they also demonstrated it in the President’s Cup last year. It will be my counterpart Zach Johnson who will decide whether the USA can count on him. What I can say is that the importance of him in our sport is fundamental “.

But there is another fundamental node, and it is called LIV Golf. In this sense, Donald repeats what is already known: the arbitral justice of London will clarify what should become of those who have embraced the coils of the Arab Super League, which, moreover, has not yet received recognition by the OWGR (which means that its members do not earn points valid for the world ranking).
