The Toyko Olympics and all the majors for the year are over, so the attention of the world of men’s golf shifts to the delayed Ryder Cup. We have all the information about the 2021 Ryder Cup teams.

When is the 2021 Ryder Cup?

Where will the 2021 Ryder Cup take place?

The biennial European-American golf tournament will be held at Whistling Straits, Haven, Wisconsin.

Who will be the captains of the 2021 Ryder Cup?

Padraig Harrington, an Irish player, will be the European captain for this years Ryder Cup. Although he will not be playing on the European team this year, he is well-versed in the tournament having been on six Ryder Cup teams and winning four times each in 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2010.

Harrington, along with Robert Karlsson and Luke Donald, has elected Graeme McDowell, a fellow major-winner from Ireland, to be one of his vice captains.

Steve Stricker will lead the American team. As vice captains of the US, Stricker will be joined by Zach Johnson, Jim Furyk and Davis Love III.

What time are the Ryder Cup teams selected?

The final qualification event, 2021 BMW Championship on September 12th, will determine which teams are selected. The golf season is based on the performance of players in PGA and European Tour events. Majors are given more weight.

The European team will be made up of the top four Ryder Cup European Points List players, and the top five Ryder Cup World Points List players who have not been chosen. The European team will be completed with three captain's choices for Harrington.

The US team will be made up of the top six players from the US Ryder Cup points list, and six captain's choices for Steve Stricker.

Who are the contenders for both teams?

According to current circumstances, American Colin Morikawa will be the only golfer who is guaranteed to play in September's Ryder Cup. He has enough points to guarantee his spot on the United States team.

Many golfers are almost certain of their position on the European team. Jon Rahm is the top European and World Points List player, while Rory McIlroy (and Paul Casey) are well-placed on both lists.

This is how the teams would look if they were picked today.

Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry and Shane Lowry are both Irish golfing Olympians. They have a great chance to play at the Ryder Cup. Lowry would make his first Ryder Cup appearance. If he plays well, he would be a strong contender to be a captain's choice.
