Redazione ANSA ROME

(ANSA) - ROME, JUL 20 - Ryder Cup Europe said Wednesday that Henrik Stenson has been stripped of the Team Europe captaincy after the Swede reportedly agreed a deal with the Saudi-funded LIV breakaway tour.
    "Ryder Cup Europe today confirms that Henrik Stenson's tenure as Captain of Team Europe for the 2023 Ryder Cup at Marco Simone Golf and Country Club in Rome, Italy from September 25 - October 1, 2023, has been brought to an end with immediate effect," said a statement.
    "In light of decisions made by Henrik in relation to his personal circumstances, it has become clear that he will not be able to fulfil certain contractual obligations to Ryder Cup Europe that he had committed to prior to his announcement as Captain on Tuesday March 15, 2022, and it is therefore not possible for him to continue in the role of Captain.
    "Confirmation of the new 2023 European Ryder Cup Captain will be made in due course. Ryder Cup Europe will be making no further comment on any aspect of the process until that time". (ANSA).
