Even without Tiger Woods’ resurgence, the US were and are favourites to win 2018’s Ryder Cup in France. With recent major winners Reed, Spieth and Koepka on the greens, it’s a formidable line up.

But Rose, Molinari and McIlroy have a thing or two to prove this year, backed by major-botherers Garcia and Fleetwood to name a couple.

If you want to follow the Ryder Cup, you don’t need to fork out for a Sky Sports subscription if you don’t want to. Here’s how to watch.
