Ryder Cup Team Europe

European Ryder Cup Team 2014 - Gleneagles

Lee WestwoodWe now know the 12 players who will be part of Team Europe for the 2014 Ryder Cup in Medinah with Ian Poulter and Nicolas Colsaerts named as the two wild cards. The Ryder Cup is of course one of the highlights of any players career and Captain Paul McGinley will be happy with the strength and depth of his team ahead of Gleneagles. We know the key European players will be Rory Mcilroy, Luke Donald and Lee Westwood while it is a team packed with experience in the game with only Colsaerts a rookie.

The Europeans will be looking to play well under the pressure cooker atmosphere of Ryder Cup Matches with the Chicago crowd likely to boisterous in their support of the home side. The US Open Champion Martin Kaymer is of course part of the team as are the likes of Rory Mcilroy and Graeme McDowell who has been in great form this season and seems to thrive in the Ryder Cup format. The Captain will be pleased to see that many of Europe’s experienced Ryder Cup players are playing at the top of their form for the 2014 season and heading towards Medinah they will have a good chance of beating the Americans.
