“There’s great talent coming round and he just looks like a guy who wants to get his nose in there on a Sunday, and in a Ryder Cup – those are the players you want.”
Bjorn, who has been in touch with Rahm already, also expects the likes of Tommy Fleetwood and Tyrrell Hatton to press for places, despite their less impressive debuts at Augusta. Both missed the cut.
“It’s a changing of the guard,” said Bjorn. “It’s still difficult to see a Ryder Cup team without the likes of Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson and Sergio Garcia – and you wouldn’t put it past Poults (Ian Poulter), Graeme McDowell and others to come back – but the group behind that is seeing big changes. There’s just a much bigger group.”
