Keegan Bradley appointed US Ryder Cup captain after Tiger Woods turns down the job

Keegan Bradley has been chosen as the captain for the U.S. Ryder Cup team in 2025, marking his first leadership role in the prestigious tournament. The PGA of America announced Bradley’s selection following discussions that initially involved Tiger Woods, who ultimately declined the position due to his commitments with the PGA Tour Enterprises board.

Bradley, 38 years old and currently undergoing media training in New York, where he will be introduced formally as captain, becomes the youngest American to hold the role since Arnold Palmer in 1963. His appointment comes after Woods, initially favored for the position, opted out due to time constraints.

Bradley, known for his passionate approach to the game, expressed his excitement and readiness for the role, citing his deep respect for the Ryder Cup tradition. The decision reflects Bradley’s extensive Ryder Cup experience and strong connections within the golf community, factors considered pivotal by PGA of America President John Lindert.

Bradley’s career highlights include six PGA Tour victories, including the 2011 PGA Championship. Despite missing out on a 2023 Ryder Cup spot, his selection as captain underscores his enduring impact and dedication to the sport.
