U.S. Ryder Cup vice captain Fred Couples has revealed a few players who will definitely be heading to Rome later this year.
Couples made the revelations about the U.S. side heading to the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club in September during a conversation with George Downing on The Fred Couples Show on Sirius XM PGA Tour Radio.
Here's the full conversation:
GolfMagic's writers have already made their predictions for what each side will look like.
World No.1 Scottie Scheffler was the first to automatically qualify for the U.S. side.
Six players automatically earns spots for the U.S. and Europe, but different criteria is used to determine the qualifiers.
Should the comments by Couples turn out to be true, that would leave captain Zach Johnson with three more picks.
One player who looked a dead cert to be on the team is Justin Thomas, but the two-time major champ has been abysmal in the majors this year considering his lofty standards.
Johnson spoke of his concern about Thomas during the 2023 Open at Royal Liverpool.
Elsewhere, there have been some interesting developments for European skipper Luke Donald.
German Yannik Paul and Poland's Adrian Meronk also occupy the top spots for Europe.
And recently Sepp Straka, after a good showing at Hoylake, has confirmed Donald has 'been in touch'.
