The US are counting on six Ryder Cup rookies with impressive golf resumes as they try to wrest the coveted trophy from Europe at Whistling Straits.

The youth movement -- against a veteran European side -- is less risky than it might appear with the Americans counting the newcomers as RINOs -- Rookies in Name Only -- thanks to their accomplishments elsewhere.

“I have all the faith in the world in all the rookies,” said Justin Thomas, who made his own Ryder Cup debut in the loss to Europe in France in 2018.

“Your rookies are a two-time major champion in Collin Morikawa or a FedExCup Champion in Patrick Cantlay, and a (Tokyo Olympics) gold medallist in Xander Schauffele,” Thomas said. “When you’re looking at guys like that that are your rookies, that says a lot about your team.”
