The Ryder Cup starts in three weeks, and the expectations are huge. The European team and the US team have a great roster. It is difficult to predict who will win in the end. You can already feel the heated atmosphere and euphoria.
Many things will not be the same as they were in the past, but everything changes over the years, including golf. One of the important changes will be the absence of several European players. They will not be part of the Ryder Cup considering that they have joined the controversial LIV Golf.
The interview with the media also revealed that Rory McIlroy is going to find it strange to play without them. However, individuals were aware of what their decision could mean. Absence from the Ryder Cup was certainly one of the penalty options, which ultimately became a reality.
“I was speaking to Erica the other night, and it’s going to be weird for me not to have those guys in the team room because this is my seventh Ryder Cup and they’ve always been there,” -Rory McIlroy said for Golf Digest!
