USA cut for Ryder Cup as Europe lengthen following Tiger’s inclusion

| 05.09.2018

Tiger Woods’ wildcard inclusion has boosted the United States’ chances of lifting the Ryder Cup.

The Americans are into 4/5 from 5/6 to win the intercontinental competition on European soil for the first time since 1993.

Captain Jim Furyk will bring a team including Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson and the in-form Woods to Paris for the three-day event in late September.

They’ll go up against a European side that has drifted from 6/5 to 5/4 following the USA’s announcement.

Open winner Francesco Molinari will spearhead the home continent’s charge, with British talents Justin Rose and Tommy Fleetwood also set to compete.

The United States are the current holders. But Europe haven’t lost when hosting the tournament in its last five iterations.

Who will come out on top this time around at Le Golf National in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines?

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Tiger’s inclusion has strengthened USA’s chances of winning this year’s Ryder Cup, according to the latest odds.”
