Matt Chivers and Matt Coles dive into Luke Donald’s Captain’s picks and discuss what each player brings to Team Europe, and who was left out…
The 2023 European Ryder Cup side is complete, but has Luke Donald chosen the right players for his team?
Swedish starlet Ludvig Aberg has been included in most of the talk surrounding these captain’s picks for the last few weeks. His win in Crans Montana made it certain that he would be there.
How good is this young Swede? The two Matts talk about how good he has been in the three months since turning professional, and what his possible ceiling might be, including how many Ryder Cups he could play in.
There’s a changing of the guard. Many of the elder European players went to LIV Golf, meaning that there would be some space for the new to come in. Sepp Straka and Nicolai Hojgaard are among those.
Should Hojgaard have made it into the team? Was Adrian Meronk a better option for Team Europe? The boys discuss what could have been for the Pole and perhaps why Luke Donald has made the right choice.
The guys also discuss what a possible scoreline between a US ‘B’ team and a European ‘B’ team might be, and it doesn’t look good for the Europeans…
