Nick Faldo: 'USA favourites for Ryder Cup'

Nick Faldo says that extra experience will help USA beat Europe in the 2016 Ryder Cup.

Nick Faldo has predicted that USA will win the 2016 Ryder Cup.

The six-time Major winner believes that experience will be the key to victory, and expects a number of rookies to line up for Europe.

"I think America could be the favourites this time because the backbone of their team will be similar to the last one," Faldo told Reuters.

"Europe's backbone could be very different. We could easily have six rookies, easily. There are a lot of names America won't know a lot about if we get the likes of Tommy Fleetwood, Andy Sullivan and Danny Willett making the team.

"That could be a bad thing but it could also be a good thing because sometimes it can be quite nice to be a little bit of an unknown. I think that's going to happen and we'll probably have a fresh half of our team."

Europe will be aiming to win their fourth successive Ryder Cup.
