European vice captain Graeme McDowell reflects on his experience with the Ryder Cup, how it’s different from anything else

The Solheim Cup did not disappoint, and now the golf world waits for another opportunity to show their pride for country and sport. Luckily, the 43rd installment of the Ryder Cup is quickly approaching, and will take place at Whistling Straits in Sheboygan, Wisconsin from September 24-26.

The European side finally saw a piece of its roster solidify with stars like Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood, Paul Casey, and Viktor Hovland earning their way onto the team.

Graeme McDowell appeared in four Ryder Cups as a player, with a record of 8-5-2, and will now serve Padraig Harrington as a vice captain.

Golfweek sat down with the 2010 U.S Open champion to discuss what the Ryder Cup means to him, how it’s different from anything else in golf, and what kind of play fits Whistling Straits.

“It’s a completely different feeling, it’s so intense, and it’s so amazing.”
