European Team: Ryder Cup Preview
Padraig Harrington captains the European Ryder Cup Team this time around. The 3x Major winner has an excellent, experienced squad at his disposal, too: stand out names, including Luke Donald (vice-captain), Henrik Stenson (vice-captain), Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm (qualifiers), and Captain’s picks Sergio Garcia and Ian Poulter
Harrington will need to call on all of his team’s skills and experience in this year’s Ryder Cup, too: the 2021 tournament will take place at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, USA, giving the American’s home course advantage.
On top of that, despite the fact that Europe won the last Ryder Cup tournament comprehensively at 17.5-10.5 in 2018, this American Team boasts eight of the world’s current Top 10 best golfers (as ranked by the PGA). So, it is likely to be a real test for Harrington’s squad.
Can the highly-rated, youthful members of the mens’ singles game on the American team combine to win only their country’s third Ryder Cup trophy in the last ten years, or will the calm and collected Europeans prevail?
The action is set to commence on Friday at 14:00 BST. So, be sure to watch it to find out (SkySports – UK).
In the meantime, read on to find out exactly who will be representing Europe in the tournament; take a look at some of the European Team Betting Specials broadcast on Betfred.com, and learn more about two exclusive Ryder Cup promotions currently on offer at the same site.

Team Europe: Ryder Cup Betting Tips:
Bernd Wiesberger could easily be a surprise package and take Top European Rookie honours at this year’s event. But that’s more of a speculative punt.
The smart money, however, says that given his superb form on the mens’ singles circuit in recent years, it’s hard to look past team Jon Rahm (Rodriguez) as the Top European Pointscorer, especially at 18/5.
