Keegan Bradley Remains Hopeful For A Spot In The 2025 Ryder Cup

Keegan Bradley will serve as the U.S. captain for next year’s Ryder Cup, but he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of also playing in the event.

During Tuesday’s press conference announcing his captaincy, Bradley, 38, was clear about his intentions.

“I want to play on the team,” said Bradley, who is the world’s 19th-ranked player. “I feel like I’m still in the prime of my career and can make this team.”

His appointment was unexpected due to his age, lack of vice captain experience, and ongoing success as a player. Bradley won twice last year and was controversially left off the Ryder Cup team that lost in Rome.

Bradley’s captaincy became a possibility when Tiger Woods, the presumed frontrunner, declined the role, citing his responsibilities on the boards of the PGA TOUR and PGA TOUR Enterprises.

Bradley could become the first playing captain in either the Ryder Cup or President Cup since Woods led the U.S. to victory in the 2019 Presidents Cup in Australia.

Last year, Bradley finished 11th on the points list for the Ryder Cup team but did not make the 12-man squad. The top six players on the U.S. points list automatically qualified, followed by six captain’s picks. A poignant moment from the Netflix docuseries “Full Swing” captured Bradley receiving a call from U.S. captain Zach Johnson, informing him he was not selected.

Bradley has six PGA TOUR wins, including the 2011 PGA Championship. He has played in two Ryder Cups and one Presidents Cup, with records of 4-3-0 in the Ryder Cup (2012 and 2014) and 2-2-1 in the 2013 Presidents Cup.

Bradley clarified that he would not accept a captain’s pick this time. He will only play if he qualifies automatically via the points list.

“I want to make the team on points,” Bradley said. “Otherwise, I’m going to be the captain.”

Whether he serves solely as captain or also plays, Bradley’s role in the 2025 Ryder Cup will be unprecedented. He will be 39 at the time of the event, making him the youngest Ryder Cup captain since Arnold Palmer was a playing captain at 34 in 1963.

Bradley is currently 37th in this season’s FedExCup standings with two runner-up finishes and is 24th on the U.S. points list for next year’s Ryder Cup.
