Europe’s Ryder Cup hopes, Bryson DeChambeau’s potential playing partners and the strengths of Team USA are among the talking points in a bonus Sky Sports Golf podcast.
Rich Beem and Guardian golf correspondent Ewan Murray join Sky Sports' commentator Ewen Murray and regular host Josh Antmann to look ahead to the biggest team event in the sport.
The guests look at who is likely to impress for Padraig Harrington's European side and why the Ryder Cup venue could suit them, as well as discussing the form of some of the Irishman's players heading into the biennial contest.
Beem puts forward his case why Steve Stricker's side should win on American soil and the important role the home crowd will play in Wisconsin this week, plus gives his verdict on whether the Team USA line-up is the strongest in their history.
