Luke Donald has officially been named the Team Europe Ryder Cup captain for the upcoming 2025 edition of the tournament at Bethpage Black. The fact that he made a big success this year was the reason why he got another chance.

The European team achieved a dominant victory against the US team. Luke Donald could not hide his happiness after being trusted once again. It will be a great chance for him to do the same feat again.
“I’m delighted and honoured to have been given the chance to lead Team Europe in the Ryder Cup once again.

Great opportunities don’t come along very often in life and I’m a great believer that when they do, you need to grab them with both hands – this is one of these moments.

I’ve been fortunate as a player to have had many amazing times in the Ryder Cup over the years and so to add being a winning Captain to that, to form bonds with the 12 players like we did in Italy and to get the result we did, was very special indeed
."- Donald said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com!

Luke Donald is optimistic

The world's most famous golfers believe that the greatest feat in golf is to win the Ryder Cup on away soil. Looking at the history of this competition, it will be very difficult for the Europeans to win.

Donald still believes in this team and knows how capable they are of making a good result. It will be a great chance to become the second European coach who managed to win the Ryder Cup at home and away.

“The Ryder Cup means so much to me, so to be Captain again and have the chance to create more history by becoming only the second European Captain to win back-to-back is exciting.

There is no question that being a Captain away from home is a tough task.

But I have never shied away from challenges throughout my career and it is precisely the kind of thing that motivates me. I can’t wait to get another 12-strong team to Bethpage in 2025”.
