PGA of America President Suzy Whaley announced Wednesday that Steve Stricker will serve as the United States Ryder Cup Team Captain for the 43rd Ryder Cup, which will be played September 22-27, 2020 at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.
Stricker becomes the 29th U.S. Captain since the Ryder Cup’s inception in 1927.
A native of Edgerton, Wisconsin (located 95 miles southwest of Whistling Straits), Stricker made his Ryder Cup debut in 2008 (at the age of 41) and played in three consecutive Ryder Cups (2008, ‘10, ‘12).
The 51-year-old Stricker was a member of winning U.S. Ryder Cup efforts in 2008 and ‘16, the latter as a Vice Captain. A 12-time winner on the PGA Tour, Striker also played in five Presidents Cups, an event at which he served as victorious U.S. Captain in 2017.
