Ahead of this year’s Ryder Cup, European golfers compete in the Hero Cup.
The DP World Tour 2023 Hero Cup will be held at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club for three days from the 13th. The Hero Cup is a ‘team match’ in which 10 players each join the continental European team and the England/Ireland team to compete.
It is of a similar type to this year’s Ryder Cup and last year’s Presidents Cup, but the difference is that it is a head-to-head competition between European players. In particular, this competition is expected to be an evaluation match ahead of the final selection of Ryder Cup European team members. The first day of the Hero Cup is four-ball, the second day is foursome, and the final round is single-player.
The continental European team captained by Francesco Molinari (Italy), who won the 147th Open, was joined by Alex Noren (Sweden) and Thomas Peter (Belgium), who won a total of 10 times on the DP World Tour. 온라인카지노
Adrian Meronk, who is second in the DP World Tour rankings and the first Polish player to win the DP World Tour, will also participate. “Some of the younger players have shown a mature game management ability under high pressure and have proven their ability to play in big games. We wanted to give the veterans a chance to compete alongside them,” Molinari said.
England/Ireland team captain Tommy Fleetwood (England). Fleetwood and 148th Open Open winners Shane Lowry (Ireland) and Tyrrell Hatton (England) will be joining us.
