Keegan Bradley Named USA Ryder Cup Captain for 2025, Replacing Zach Johnson Amid Captain’s Picks and Boys Club Debate

Keegan Bradley named as America’s next Ryder Cup captain

America’s next Ryder Cup captain has been announced, and it’s none other than Keegan Bradley. The 38-year-old golfer, who was controversially left off the team last year, has been given the captaincy for Team USA at the 2025 Ryder Cup at Bethpage Black.

The announcement came as a surprise to many, as Bradley has a tumultuous history with the event, having only participated twice and being famously snubbed by former captain Zach Johnson last year. Johnson’s decision to exclude Bradley was captured in detail on Netflix’s Full Swing, showcasing the hurt and disappointment the golfer felt.

Despite not making the team last year, Bradley will now have the opportunity for redemption as the captain. With the freedom to potentially select himself for the team, Bradley has a chance to lead America to victory on home soil next year.

Experts in the golfing world have praised Bradley’s appointment, noting his passion for the game and the Ryder Cup. With the controversy surrounding last year’s selections, Bradley’s captaincy signifies a new chapter for Team USA.

While Tiger Woods was initially rumored to be the frontrunner for the role, it was ultimately Bradley who secured the position. PGA of America President John Lindert expressed confidence in Bradley’s ability to lead the team with determination and skill at the prestigious event.

With Bradley at the helm, the 2025 Ryder Cup promises to be an exciting chapter in American golf history, as the team looks to secure victory under his leadership.
