Steve Stricker will be named the U.S. Ryder Cup Captain

When the Ryder Cup comes to Whistling Straits, Edgerton native Steve Stricker will be the captain of the U.S. team. Gary D'Amato joined Lucas in the Morning to discuss the news.

D'Amato wrote at wisconsin.golf that Stricker will be introduced officially as the captain in a press conference Wednesday morning.

D'Amato also notes that it's the first time the U.S. Ryder Cup captain will be a golfer without a major championship.

In this clip, D'Amato discusses what led to the decision to name Stricker the captain, why his experience as an assistant captain is important in context to the news of him becoming captain, and the pressure of trying to win the Ryder Cup only a couple of hours away from Stricker's hometown.
