Luke Donald has been announced as European captain for the 2023 Ryder Cup after Henrik Stenson’s role was stripped for a move to LIV Golf.

Ryder Cup players and captains had been warned that if they joined LIV they would not be allowed to take part in the iconic tournament and Stenson was duly dismissed from his role after resigning for the Saudi Arabia-funded series last month had registered.

Donald was interviewed for captaincy before Stenson was picked and is now the first England captain of the European team since Nick Faldo in 2008.

“So excited and truly honored to be named European Ryder Cup Captain,” Donald tweeted. “I’m really looking forward to the next 14 months and preparing my team for Rome.”

Stenson made his first LIV appearance over the weekend, winning his debut tournament in Bedminster, New Jersey to receive a winner’s check worth £3.3million.

“I think we can agree that I played like a captain,” the Swede joked after his win. “It was a good first week. Nice to be here with the guys and get a feel for it. It’s been a busy 10 days and I’m very proud that I managed to focus as well as I did.

“It was a bit shaky coming home, we haven’t closed the deal in profit for a couple of years so it’s always a bit of extra pressure when you’re in the running but I’ve done well.”
