With an impressive career that includes winning the 2011 PGA Championship and five other PGA Tour victories, Bradley’s leadership and experience will be crucial for the US team in 2025. Fans can expect an exciting Ryder Cup under Bradley’s guidance as he aims to bring the Cup back to American soil.
