European Ryder Cup vice-captain Thomas Bjorn will join up with Team Europe on Tuesday, as the Dane gets married this weekend.
Bjorn, who is 52-years-old, revealed to Betway that he will marry his long-term partner Grace Barber today (Saturday), after finding that this weekend was the only time he had this year to fit the wedding in.
He said: “It was the only weekend that would fit into a very busy schedule.
“It’ll only be a small wedding with a few people, and that’s the way we wanted things to be in our lives right now.”
Regarding a honeymoon, Bjorn said: “We’ll figure something out later. That’s the way it is.”
Bjorn has been working closely with Luke Donald to finalise preparations for the match against the USA, which gets underway on Friday.
The Dane will now join up with the rest of the camp on Tuesday in Rome, to join Donald’s group of five vice-captains.
Earlier this week, it was revealed by Bjorn that the Team Europe backroom staff were “sick to their stomachs“, over the decision to leave out Adrian Meronk from Team Europe.
“We have the picks to make the right team but there’s not one person in golf who doesn’t feel for Adrian Meronk,” Bjorn, Europe’s 2018 winning captain, said.
“There really isn’t. I spoke to him last week. I feel gutted for him and I’ve been in that situation myself.”
It was a sentiment that was shared by fellow vice-captain Nicolas Colsaerts, with the Belgian saying it was a difficult decision, but that the team has plenty of talent and experience.
