The Ryder Cup, which will be held in Rome this September and October, is attracting enormous public attention. The European Team will be without many important names who have lost the right to perform with their resignation from the DP World Tour.
One of them is Sergio Garcia. On the other hand, the US Team may have the strongest team, however, we will have to wait for official confirmation. Jon Rahm, a Spanish golfer who has been playing better and better lately, supported Garcia and believes that he deserves a place in the team.
Ian Poulter is delighted with Rahm's support and believes he has said the right things. "The only person who gets it. It’s just golf.. politics aside it’s just golf,"- Ian Poulter wrote on social media.
Jon Rahm's support
Jon Rahm is furious at the politics that have led to this situation in the golf scene.
The conflict between LIV Golf and the PGA Tour has been going on for some time and is creating a domino effect on the golf scene. Rahm has enormous respect for his fellow countryman, Garcia. His dream was to play with him, but that dream will not come true.
“I'm going to miss him. We had a great partnership at Whistling Straits," - Jon Rahm said. "I'm going to mention history again one more time. A Spanish duo in the Ryder Cup I think to me is embedded into the roots of the Ryder Cup.
Look with Seve and Ollie were able to do throughout their partnership, right. So it's a little sad to me that politics have gotten in the way of such a beautiful event. It's the best Europeans against the best Americans, period.
And whatever is going on, who is playing LIV and who is not playing LIV to me shouldn't matter. It's whoever is best suited to represent the European side. And I have a hard time to believe that the best player Europe has ever had, the most successful player Europe has had on the Ryder Cup isn't fit to be on the team”.
