The Ryder Cup or the Olympics? Wyndham Clark takes a stand

Scottie Scheffler, Xander Schauffele, Wyndham Clark and Collin Morikawa are the four players who will represent the United States of America at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

They have earned it on their own merit on the golf course and none have renounced the honour. The top four Americans in the world ranking last Monday are the ones who will defend the national colours at the Olympic event.

After his start at the Travelers, Clark spoke precisely about the pride of making his debut at the Olympics and has argued that it is even bigger than the Ryder Cup. An opinion that has not left anyone indifferent: “The Ryder Cup in the world of golf is practically the biggest thing, but now that this sport is played at the Olympic Games, it is probably even bigger than the Ryder. You are representing your country at a much higher level,” said Clark.

The tradition of the Ryder or the magnitude of the Games, for Wyndham Clark it’s clear. He prefers the Olympic event.

In the case of the Denver player, it will be the third time he represents the United States after playing the Arnold Palmer Cup in 2014 and the Ryder Cup less than a year ago. In Rome, the Californian player scored 1.5 points for his team in the three matches he played.

What the US Open 2023 champion also has clear is the amazing team that the North American country has and the pride it is for him to play with those three teammates: “I hope that the four of us can step onto the podium and give medals to the United States to try to win the medal table. But, yes, it’s impressive. This is probably the coolest team I’ve ever been a part of, for sure.”

Of the four American players, Schauffele seeks to repeat the gold from Tokyo while the other three team members will try to win their first Olympic medal. From 1 to 4 August, at Golf National, David Puig and Jon Rahm will try to face the American squad and give Spain its first Olympic medal in the discipline.
