Fleetwood and Molinari to captain Hero Cup teams


Ryder Cup heroes Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari will go head-to-head and captain the respective Great Britain and Ireland and Continental Europe teams in next year’s Hero Cup.

The new team match play contest will take place at Abu Dhabi Golf Club from January 13-15, 2023, with Fleetwood and Molinari each selecting nine players for their teams before they, themselves, make up the ten-man line-ups.

The teams will be confirmed early next month with Fleetwood and Molinari working alongside Luke Donald, who will preside over the event in his capacity as 2023 European Ryder Cup Captain.

Selection will take into account performances on the DP World Tour Rankings with the contest itself consisting of one session of foursomes, one session of fourballs and one session of singles matches, with all 20 players taking part in each session.

Members of the winning team will each earn $125,000, with those on the losing team each receiving $75,000.

Guests can register online for free general admission tickets.
