On the second day of the Ryder Cup, Zach Johnson may be facing a tough challenge. Team USA is facing multiple setbacks in Rome, and the captain’s choice to add Brooks Koepka to the team may come back to haunt them.
The American team, led by World No.1 Scottie Scheffler, suffered a major setback as they were unable to take the lead from the Europeans on Day 1. Despite promising potential, their partnership appears to have fallen short today.
in their pursuit of a Masters title
Brooks Koepka and Scottie Scheffler’s chances of winning the Masters tournament take a major hit.
The Ryder Cup is a significant occasion that has been embraced by numerous fans. Millions of viewers are eagerly anticipating the outcome. However, Team America is facing difficulties, and the European players Viktor Hovland and Ludvig Aberg have made history on Day 2, causing distress among USA supporters.
In the morning foursomes, they easily defeated Koepka and Scheffler with a score of 9&7. Hovland commented after the match, “We make a great team and I believe we could have taken on anyone today. Scottie and Brooks weren’t at their best, which contributed to our 9 and 7 victory.”
Ludvig Aberg, a first-time player in the Ryder Cup, was asked about his confidence after defeating the World No.1 and five-time major champion. He replied, “Today was almost unbelievable at times. I had to remind myself it was real.”

The European pair achieved the largest margin of victory in an 18-hole match at the Marco Simone Golf Course and Club. They dominated, winning 9 out of 11 holes and scoring 7 wins in their last 8 holes. This outcome is likely to shake Koepka’s self-assurance.

Zach Johnson chose LIV golfer, while Luke Donald did not
The selection of players for this season’s Ryder Cup sparked controversy and generated a lot of attention. Despite European Team captain Luke Donald’s decision to include Ludvig Aberg on the team, Zach Johnson opted for Justin Thomas over several other skilled golfers.
In June, Aberg became a professional player. Despite this, Donald believed it was necessary to include him as he is a highly skilled player. Aberg’s performance on the field proves the captain’s decision to be correct. Johnson also had a similar justification for choosing JT, despite his less successful season.
Yet another debatable selection for Team USA’s team this season was five-time major winner, Brooks Koepka. Unlike Luke Donald, who did not choose any LIV players for his team, Johnson took a risk that doesn’t seem to have paid off in Rome.
