The PGA of America will announce the captain for the 2025 U.S. Ryder Cup at noon ET on Tuesday in New York, and it reportedly won’t be Tiger Woods.

Woods was considered the leading candidate for the job, but the Telegraph reported on Monday that he had turned it down.

Woods, 28, had been seeking a reduced role in the captaincy but he and the PGA of America could not reach an agreement on what that would entail, the report said.

Other possible options include previous captains Zach Johnson (2023), Steve Stricker (2021), Jim Furyk (2018) and Davis Love III (2016), as well as Fred Couples, Stewart Cink, Matt Kuchar, Rickie Fowler and Phil Mickelson.

PGA of America President John Lindert will make the announcement at the NASDAQ Building. It will be broadcast on Golf Channel and SiriusXM and live on the PGA’s Facebook and X (Twitter) accounts.

The biennial competition will be held September 26-28, 2025, at Bethpage Black on Long Island, New York.

Luke Donald returns as European captain after leading his team to victory in Rome in 2023.
