Keegan Bradley Named As United States Captain For 2025 Ryder Cup

Keegan Bradley

Keegan Bradley has been named as captain of the United States Team for the 2025 Ryder Cup at Bethpage Black in a surprise move.

Bradley missed out on a spot on the playing team as the USA lost 16.5-11.5 to Europe at Marco Simone GC in Rome in the 2023 Ryder Cup.

But Bradley will be part of the United States team in 2025 after being named as the captain in what was an unforeseen appointment by many golf observers.

Tiger Woods was in the frame to lead USA into battle at Bethpage Black but it will be Bradley instead as he creates history at the 2025 Ryder Cup as the second youngest US captain after Arnold Palmer.

His counterpart will be Luke Donald, who has agreed to remain in his post for a further two years following victory in Rome in 2023.

The Englishman will lead Europe into battle in New York and will be the first back-to-back captain for Europe since 1995.

“I would like to thank the PGA of America Ryder Cup Committee for their trust in me as we embark on this journey to Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, New York.

“My passion and appreciation for golf’s greatest team event have never been stronger.

“The Ryder Cup is unlike any other competition in our sport, and this edition will undoubtedly be particularly special given the rich history and enthusiastic spectators at this iconic course.

“I look forward to beginning preparations for 2025.”
