2021 Ryder Cup picks

Back Europe (+135) to Lift the Trophy as it just needs a tie to retain the title as the reigning champion. Europe (+190) as Ryder Cup winner can also be taken for a greater payout, albeit with the threat of a 14-14 tie.

The Ryder Cup hasn’t finished in a tie since 1989, with Europe retaining the trophy as the reigning champ.

Team USA’s 12 members have an average Official Golf World Ranking of 9 and average age of 29.1. Team Europe ranks 31st in the OWGR, on average, but has experience on its side with an average age of 34.6. Five members of Team Europe have played in at least four Ryder Cups, while only Johnson has played in at least four editions of the international competition for the Americans.

Experience has long held weight in this competition and the Europeans have it in spades as the Americans continue to transition into a new age of top-flight golfers.

Bryson DeChambeau wants to end beef with U.S. Ryder Cup teammate Brooks Koepka

Bryson DeChambeau's coach said his player wants the beef with U.S. Ryder Cup teammate Brooks Koepka to end.

Bryson DeChambeau wants to end beef with U.S. Ryder Cup teammate Brooks Koepka

The Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka beef has cluttered the headlines all season long and will continue to do so as the pair compete in the Ryder Cup later this week at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin. But at least one side wants to end the feud.

“Whether or not they are both doing it to maximize their global profile, Bryson wants it over,” his coach Mike Schy told the Irish Times. “Move on. The bottom line is two big egos.”

Big mouths, too. Both players have been taking shots at one another all year long. From slow play and physical criticisms to the eye-roll seen round the world in May, the two have been at odds to the extent that the jeer of “Brooksie” has been addressed by the PGA Tour. And despite all that, U.S. captain Steve Stricker isn’t worried.

“It’s a non-issue, really, for me and the team,” Stricker said during the Ryder Cup captain’s news conference on Monday in Wisconsin. “We got together a few weeks ago, the six of us and I’ve had conversations with them both. They have assured me it’s not going to be an issue. I have no worries whatsoever.”

“Will we pair them together? I don’t think so at this point but things could change. Could always happen. But probably not. But again, I had a dinner, they all showed up. We had great conversation, great talks. So I’m not seeing it as an issue at all and they are completely on board.”

Even Koepka himself previously said he can deal with anybody for a week.

DeChambeau made his debut in the 2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National in France, where he finished 0-3-0 with foursomes losses alongside Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods and a singles loss to Alex Noren. Koepka is 4-3-1 in two previous appearances, including a 3-1 showing in 2016.

The Ryder Cup starts on Friday.
