EPGA Report: Henrik Stenson to join LIV, be stripped of Ryder Cup captaincy

Swedish golfer Henrik Stenson is planning to make the jump to the LIV Golf Invitational Series and lose his 2023 Ryder Cup captaincy in the process, Sky Sports reported Monday.

Stenson, 46, was named the captain for Team Europe earlier this year for the 2023 competition in Rome. At the time, he described the distinction as a dream come true.

Now the 2016 Open Championship winner is likely to lose that role once he commits to the Saudi-funded LIV tour.

In June, former European Ryder Cup stars who had joined LIV argued that their decision should not take them out of the running for future Ryder Cup consideration. But players must be members of the DP World Tour, previously known as the European Tour, to be considered for Team Europe.

Spaniard Sergio Garcia recently said he was quitting the DP World Tour, with the understanding that his renowned Ryder Cup career would be over as a consequence.

Zach Johnson will captain Team USA in 2023 and has made it clear that Americans who join LIV will not be considered for the team.

Stenson has already named two vice captains for the 2023 Ryder Cup, Thomas Bjorn of Denmark and Edoardo Molinari of Italy. One of them could be elevated to the role if Stenson’s captaincy is stripped.

Sky Sports also reported that rumors of Englishman Tommy Fleetwood readying a jump to the LIV circuit were untrue.
