The DP World Tour’s Italian Open is held at this venue each year, so European or DP World Tour players have significant knowledge of the course. However, a lot of American players are less accustomed to the course. As a result, Captain Zach Johnson led his troops on a pre-scouting expedition to Rome. Now that the trip is about to be over, the team had dinner together. But the veteran Ryder Cup warrior is stealing all the limelight from the Ryder Cup squad!

The US team is comprised of many of the best young golfers, including Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas. But Ryder Cup vice captain Jim Furyk is no stranger to the Ryder Cup. In fact, he’s actually one of the most skilled American golfers in the history of the biennial event.

His most notable Ryder Cup moment was the ”Battle of Brookline”, the 33rd Ryder Cup in 1999. Furyk’s singles-winning matches against Sergio Garcia took the US team to a 14-12 lead.
