The Daily Mail posted a report online that the Saudi Tour reportedly signed two “former No. 1 players and Ryder Cup Stars”. The announcement was made on April 9, just as the world’s attention was focused on Tiger Woods during the Masters. They don’t say they are both golfers and both. Either way, if this story is true, it will surely open the door to wild speculation. Ryder Cup fans can buy Ryder Cup 2023 Tickets from our website.
Since the inception of the World Golf Rankings in 1986, 25 players have achieved world No. 1 status. Bernhard Langer was the first golfer to be ranked #1, followed by Seve Ballesteros, Ian Woosnam, Greg Norman, Nick Faldo and Fred Couples.
Ballesteros passed away in 2011. The rest are still with us, but it may be a bit old to participate in the Saudi Tour, although it is a money bonanza for everyone who took part.
We’re assuming Norman got paid a little but he’s never played in the Ryder Cup Stars because he’s Australian. Fred Couples is unlikely to be on the Saudi tour, though he still has the firepower to draw in onlookers.
After all, according to Tiger Woods, it was Capps who was in charge of the Masters’ huge gallery during Woods’ practice rounds. Sure, he’s kidding, but couples can be a great option for the Saudi Tour.
Ryder Cup Stars contracted to Saudi Tour
At this stage of his life, the question is whether he wants to travel so much and so far. Oregon is one thing, but the other side of the world is another.
Speaking of the Saudi Tour, Woods just said all his records are on the PGA Tour, and he kind of stared, like, do you think you can challenge my records? And don’t ask again. We all know that look.
The next group of firsts includes Ernie Els, Vijay Singh and David Duval. Of the three, only Duval has played in the Ryder Cup in 1999 and 2002. Team USA lost in 2002 and Duval wasn’t the last goalscorer in 1999.
That honour more or less went to Justin Leonard’s 40-foot putt on the 17th hole, earning Team USA a half-point. Will Justin Leonard Leave His NBC Post To Play For The Saudis? But you never know. And he was never the number one in the world. In addition, all three are older than 50 years. But they have star power.
