Ryder Cup 2023 teams: Who is playing for Europe and USA in huge Rome event?


THE Ryder Cup is set to return on Friday – and some of golf’s biggest stars are set to be involved in Rome.

Team Europe will be hoping they can take lean on home advantage and regain the trophy they lost at Whistling Straits in 2021.

Meanwhile, Team USA will be eyeing a win overseas for the first time since 1993.

Historically, the United States have won the most Ryder Cups, with them running out winners on 27 occasions out of 43 meetings.

However, since Europe became a full-continent team in 1979, the Euros have tasted victory in 11 of 20 matches.

But who is playing in this year’s epic competition?
