United States Ryder Cup captain Zach Johnson brought back Davis Love III as vice captain for the 2023 Ryder Cup.

Johnson said the pick of Love III was a no-brainer due to his “unmatched passion” for the event.

Love III is a two-time captain for the U.S., including in 2016, a 17-11 victory at Hazeltine National Golf Club and in 2012 at Medinah Country Club. The 58-year-old played in the Ryder Cup six times and has been a vice captain for three previous events: 2010, ’18 and ’21.

“The Ryder Cup is one of the truly special events in all of sports, and I am so honored to be named a Vice Captain in Italy in 2023,” said Love. “Zach has worked tirelessly since he was named Captain, and I’m ready to do whatever it takes to help Zach and the entire U.S. Team to win in September.”

Last September, Love III was the U.S. captain in a 17.5-12.5 victory in the Presidents Cup at Quail Hollow Club.

Love III joins Steve Stricker, who was named Ryder Cup vice captain in February 2022, with Johnson confirming his plans to name additional vice captains at a later date.

The 2023 Ryder Cup is Sept. 29-Oct. 1 at Marco Simone Golf & Country Club in Rome, Italy.
