2025 Ryder Cup Captain Announcement: Keegan Bradley takes the Helm

Keegan Bradley Named US Captain for 2025 Ryder Cup at Bethpage Black

In an exciting announcement, Keegan Bradley has been named the US captain for the 2025 Ryder Cup at Bethpage Black in New York. The PGA of America revealed this decision on Monday, following a search process that also included discussions with Tiger Woods for the position.

Bradley will be taking over from Zach Johnson, who faced criticism after the US team’s disappointing performance in the last Ryder Cup against Europe. The PGA of America President, John Lindert, expressed confidence in Bradley’s leadership, stating that the team will compete with the same determination that has defined his career.

While Woods was initially a favorite for the captaincy, he cited time constraints as a reason for not taking on the role. Bradley, a six-time PGA Tour winner including the 2011 PGA Championship, expressed his enthusiasm for the prestigious event, especially after being left out of the 2023 US Ryder Cup squad.

Having participated in the Ryder Cup in 2012 and 2014, Bradley brings valuable experience to the captaincy role. He emphasized his passion for the event, highlighting the unique atmosphere and history associated with the Ryder Cup.

On the European side, Luke Donald will return as captain for the 2025 edition after leading his team to victory in Italy last year. With two strong captains at the helm, the 2025 Ryder Cup promises to be a thrilling competition at the iconic Bethpage Black course. Bradley is eager to start preparations for the event, determined to lead the US team to success against their European rivals.
