Keegan Bradley Chosen as 2025 U.S. Ryder Cup Captain Over Tiger Woods at Bethpage

Keegan Bradley Named U.S. Ryder Cup Captain at Bethpage Black

The PGA of America has made a surprising choice for the U.S. Ryder Cup captaincy at Bethpage Black next year, as Tiger Woods has turned down the role, leading to the selection of Keegan Bradley. Bradley, a six-time winner on the PGA Tour, will succeed captain Zach Johnson in this unique decision.

Bradley, 38, has played in two Ryder Cups and one Presidents Cup, with a record of 4-2 and 2-2-1 respectively in those events. Despite being bypassed for a captain’s pick last year, Bradley’s experience and passion for the event have earned him the captaincy for the upcoming Ryder Cup.

The decision-making process involved a committee comprising players like past captain Johnson, Jordan Spieth, and Justin Thomas, along with PGA of America executives. This unconventional choice comes after Woods declined the position due to other commitments.

Bradley’s journey to the captaincy has been marked by setbacks, including being left off the team last year and facing criticism for not being selected. However, his determination and dedication to the Ryder Cup have finally paid off in the form of this unexpected opportunity.

As Bradley prepares to lead the U.S. Team in the upcoming Ryder Cup, he reflects on his past experiences and the dream of winning the prestigious tournament that has driven him for years. With this new role, Bradley hopes to achieve his ultimate goal of bringing the Ryder Cup home and finding peace of mind in the process.
