News Update


Luke Donald will still lead Europe in the Ryder Cup in New York in 2025.

In all four times he has played, Donald has won. In his one game as captain, he led Europe to a 16–11 win over the United States.

He will be the first captain of Europe to serve two terms in a row since Bernard Gallacher from 1991 to 1995.

“I’m delighted and honoured to lead Team Europe again,” he said.

Great chances don’t come along very often, and I strongly believe that when they do, you should seize them with both hands. “This is one of those times.”

Donald was named captain in August 2022 to replace Henrik Stenson, who had been fired because he had moved to LIV Golf. He helped his team win back the title and make sure that Europe would have an unbeaten home record for more than 30 years.

Europe’s Ryder Cup players shouted “two more years” at Donald while he was giving the 2023 trophy speech.

In his four Ryder Cups as a player, Donald’s biggest win was the “Miracle at Medinah” in 2012, when he won Europe’s first singles point and helped them make an amazing comeback.

In the past, Donald had been vice-captain in years past, under Thomas Bjorn in 2018 and Padraig Harrington in 2021.

The team won the trophy back in Rome after losing it 19–9 in Wisconsin in 2021. Jon Rahm and Tommy Fleetwood both said Donald had “done an unbelievable job,” and Fleetwood added that the players were “all so proud of him.”

Benepage Black will host the next Ryder Cup in September 2025. It will be the second course in New York to host the event, after Oak Hill Country Club.
