"The course is in fantastic condition, the greens are impeccable as are the fairways. But the part that concerns the rough is treacherous, difficult. In view of the event we will also have to evaluate the variable of the weather, it is not usual to play a Ryder Cup with this 'Am I going to say anything about the pairings for the Ryder Cup?' Absolutely not, obviously," Johnson said, smiling.

Who then returned to the wild cards assigned by him to complete the team. "It's never easy to make choices, but together with all the staff I can say that we are sure we have made the ones we consider the best. It's true, we haven't won overseas for 30 years.

But the past is the past and we want to think to the present. This detail represents an additional incentive to do well. Rome is always beautiful, this city makes me feel younger. Being able to admire St. Peter's Basilica from the field is something truly unique." Zachary Harris Johnson known as Zach (Iowa City, February 24, 1976) is an American golfer, professional on the PGA circuit.

His main success is the success in the 2007 Masters. Eight years later he again triumphed in a Major at The Open Championship 2015, played on the Old Course of St. Andrews in Scotland.
