United States Ryder Cup captain Zach Johnson has named Fred Couples as his fourth vice-captain.

Couples joins Steve Stricker, Davis Love and Jim Furyk on Johnson's backroom staff for this year's contest in Italy, where the visitors will bid to retain the trophy won in record-breaking fashion at Whistling Straits in 2021. "Freddie has the unique ability to relate and get along with every player, no matter their age," Johnson said.

"In turn they respect and admire him, which ultimately creates a positive team dynamic. There's a reason he's been a vice-captain three times. I know Freddie will do everything in his power to help our US team be successful in Italy." The 44th Ryder Cup will be staged at Marco Simone Golf and Country Club from September 29 to October 1.
