Drivers used by the 2020 U.S. Ryder Cup team

In the parlance of tournament golfers, Whistling Straits is a big ballpark, like Torrey Pines South and Bethpage Black. It feels sprawling and massive when you are on the property, and during this month’s Ryder Cup, the PGA of America could stretch it to as long as 7,390 yards. Alongside Lake Michigan and covered with sandy waste areas, bunkers, fescue grass and dunes, it’s rugged.

As Jason Lusk noted last week when he wrote about the American team’s length off the tee, driving will be a significant factor at this year’s Ryder Cup. In match play, outdriving your opponent and hitting shorter clubs into greens can put pressure on the other side and create more birdie chances.

With that in mind, below is a list of the 12 players who comprise the American Ryder Cup team and the drivers we anticipate them using.
