When is Ryder Cup 2023: All info for huge Rome golf competition



RYDER CUP is BACK on the big screens and some of golf’s greatest players will be battling it out on the green in Italy.

Team USA convincingly beat Europe in the 2020 edition having dominated across all three days of action at Whistling Straits.

And Colin Morikawa will hope to be instrumental once again as it was his half-point in the singles clash against Viktor Hovland which sealed the deal for USA.

But the Americans have not had Ryder Cup success on European soil since 1993 so they are in for a tough test.

Furthermore, a decision is yet to be made on whether USA’s LIV players will be considered for selection which could see the likes of Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson all miss out.


When is the Ryder Cup 2023?

The 44th Ryder Cup will officially get underway on Friday, September 29 and conclude on Sunday, October 1.

A start time is yet to be confirmed for the first Practice day and opening ceremony, but check back with SunSport for any updates.

Macro Simone Golf and Country Club just outside Rome is the allocated venue for this huge competition and it is an 18-hole championship course.

Furthermore, Marco Simone previously hosted the Italian Open in 2021.

What TV channel is it on can it be live streamed?

The Ryder Cup will be exclusively broadcast LIVE on Sky Sports Golf in the UK.

Coverage time is set to be announced closer to the start date which you will be able to find out here on SunSport.

Subscription members of NOW TV will also have the option to stream the entire action through the NOW TV website or app.

Alternatively, SunSport will have coverage of the competition through our live blog.


What are the teams?

The sides are yet to be confirmed but World Golf Championship winner Luke Donald will captain Europe after Henrik Stenson was stripped.

While 2007 Masters champion Zach Johnson will be the man calling the shots for Team USA.

And both captain’s have until Sunday September 3 to confirm their final picks.

Can LIV golfers play in the Ryder Cup?

There has been no definitive answer as to whether LIV golf players can play at the Ryder Cup just yet.

Both European and American LIV stars are currently banned from the PGA Tour which restricts their chances of automatically qualifying.

However, captain’s still get a set number of picks even if players fail to qualify through the points system.

Golf legend Sir Nick Faldo believes that European LIV rebels shouldn’t get to play at the Ryder Cup.


Faldo said: “They [LIV players] shouldn’t be there because they’ve gone off and you’ve got to move on.

“They’re all at the age where Europe needs to find a new breed of 25-year-olds that can play half a dozen or more Ryder Cups, and I think we’re going to have that.”
