Team USA at the 43rd Ryder Cup

September 24, 2021 - September 26, 2021 - Delayed a year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 43rd Ryder Cup Matches will be held on the Straits Course at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin. It will be the first time that the course has hosted the tournament.

Due to Covid-19, qualifying for the Ryder Cup was modified in 2020 and has been extended into 2021 for both the U.S. and European teams.

The U.S. squad is made up of 12 players. The team is composed based on the Ryder Cup point standings and players have accumulated points since the qualifying period began in 2019. The top six players in the point standings automatically qualify for the team. The remaining six positions will be selected by Captain Steve Stricker, which is a change from prior events, due to Covid-19. The team will be finalised in September 2021 following the second FedEx Cup Playoff event, the BMW Championship.
