Odds on next European Ryder Cup captain – REVEALED!

Bjorn Trophy

With the dust setting on Europe’s thumping victory over the USA at last week’s Ryder Cup in France, the focus has already turned to the 2020 match at Whistling Straits in the USA.

By all accounts, there is one clear favourite to lead the United States into that match – and you can find out more about him here – but the picture is slightly less clear in Europe where there are several candidates in the frame to succeed Thomas Bjorn.

• Brooks Koepka breaks his silence on 'DJ fight'

• Opinion: In defence of Patrick Reed

Sky Bet has already opened a book on the runners and riders, with Ireland’s Padraig Harrington the current favourite at 2/5.

Padraig Harrington

The three-time major winner would become the third Irishman to captain Europe in the last four editions of the Ryder Cup, following Paul McGinley (2014) and Darren Clarke (2016).

Lee Westwood is the next most likely candidate for the job, going off at 11/4, with former US Open champion Graeme McDowell somewhat of a surprise at 16/1.

• Every Ryder Cup player rated

• Spectator hit by Koepka loses sight in eye

• Patrick Reed hits out at Jordan Spieth

You’ll get former Open champion Paul Lawrie at 18/1, with Luke Donald and Miguel Angel Jimenez both priced at 25/1.

Bjorn himself is a 33/1 outsider to repeat his captaincy.

Other contenders

50/1 – Colin Montgomerie
50/1 – Paul McGinley
50/1 – Robert Karlsson
100/1 – Bernhard Langerg
100/1 – Thomas Levet
