Jim Furyk was named to the US Ryder Cup squad on Monday. He will be one of the Vice-Captains at the event, which is taking place in Italy. One of the main reasons for his inclusion is the experience and leadership he has shown on the golf course. The news comes only a few weeks after he was appointed captain of the US Team for the 2024 Presidents Cup.
As vice-captain, he will be joining Steve Stricker, and Davis Love II. Zach Johnson will lead the team to Rome. According to reports, PGA of America announced that they will reveal more vice-captains in the future. Furyk is a seasoned competitor, having participated in nine consecutive editions of this tournament since 1997. He was also captain in 2018 and vice-captain between 2016 and 2021.
“Jim and me have been friends since more than 20 Years. He is an amazing mentor, leader and someone I can trust. “He knows what it takes for him to compete at the top level and to be a good team player,” Johnson said in a WION interview. His 17 wins on the PGA Tour speak for themselves.
