With all the golf leading up to the Ryder Cup complete (well, almost complete—Robert MacIntyre is taking part in this week’s Open de France), all that’s left to do is to see where things stand heading into next week’s biennial contest between the best golfers from the U.S. and Europe. Here the 2023 Ryder Cup Odds and Golf Latest News.
Prior to the Ryder Cup teams being announced over the past month, Team USA was sitting at around a -150 favorite at JazzSports. After both teams were named, those odds shrunk to -120. Now, it’s nearly an even matchup.
Current Ryder Cup odds list the American team at -110 and Europe at +100. A tie remains at +1100.
When looking at the statistics, the European team has the edge at both the top and bottom of the roster. The U.S. team boasts the world’s top-ranked golfer in Scottie Scheffler, but the next three on the list are Europeans: Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, and Viktor Hovland, the latter of which won the final two PGA Tour events of the year and is the reigning FedEx Cup champion.
Each team contains a player who was a controversial pick. Shane Lowry missed the FedEx Cup playoffs and hadn’t won since the 2022 BMW PGA Championship, but he picked things up after being named to the team. The Irishman finished third at the Irish Open and was a respectable 18th in defending his crown at Wentworth last week. The U.S. chose Justin Thomas despite not winning since the 2022 PGA Championship and also missing the FedEx Cup playoffs. He made some changes to his routine and his coaching crew while the playoffs were going on, and the early returns were good: Thomas finished tied for fourth at the PGA Tour’s Fortinet Championship last week.
While nine of the 12 U.S. team members went to Marco Simone Golf Club in Rome a couple of weeks ago to practice, the European team sent all 12 of its members there for practice and a bonding session. The entire dozen then went to Wentworth for the BMW PGA Championship, and seven of them went for a top-10 finish (including a runner-up performance from Tyrrell Hatton). All 12 players also made the cut last week.
The Italian Open has been contested at Marco Simone over the past several years, and several members of the European team have played well there. Robert MacIntyre and Nicolai Hojgaard have won on the course, while Matt Fitzpatrick and Tommy Fleetwood own runner-up finishes since the tournament moved to Marco Simone in 2021.
Aside from Thomas and Max Homa competing at Silverado last week, the other 10 U.S. team members haven’t played competitively in about a month (PGA Tour Championship). On the other hand, aside from 36 holes during the scouting mission earlier this month, no member of Team USA has played here.
We continue to favor the European team, especially at plus money, considering that they haven’t lost a Ryder Cup on home soil since 1993. They also seem to have the better top-to-bottom roster. Here are the latest golf odds from JazzSports for the 2023 Ryder Cup.
