(Reuters) – Zach Johnson and Davis Love III were named as vice captains by U.S. captain Steve Stricker for the 2020 Ryder Cup, which is scheduled to take place in September at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.
Love and Johnson join Jim Furyk – who was in charge of the 2018 team – as U.S. vice captains.
“With the Ryder Cup it’s important to surround yourself with quality individuals who you can lean on and who have the best interests of the team in mind,” Stricker said.
“Jim (Furyk) and I have talked about this a lot in the last year and now we are happy to add two Ryder Cup veterans in Zach and Davis to the conversation with the goal of putting this team in a prime position to win,” he said of the pair, who have played in a combined 11 Ryder Cups.
