Thomas Bjorn Still Living on a High From Ryder Cup Victory

Victorious Captain Thomas Bjorn insists he is going to enjoy every second of his Ryder Cup victory lap before deciding what the future holds for his career.

“It’s been pretty good fun, to be honest,” said Bjorn who is teeing it up this week at the Sky Sports British Masters.

“You come down, and obviously it takes a lot out of you and I ran into a bit of illness last week but I guess that was just a normal come-down from such a big event.

“Just everywhere you go, I think people enjoyed themselves, either being there or watching it. I think when you’re in it you don’t really realize, you’re so focused and determined on what’s happening right there and with the players, you don’t kind of take in the whole atmosphere of it.

“I watched a bit of it back and you start realizing how good it was because I’ve lived with Ryder Cups as a player and as a Vice Captain since ’97 and I lived it up all my life as a fan and you realize seeing those pictures how special an occasion it was.

“I keep saying to those 12, ‘we’ll always have that moment in time where that’s for us’, and that’s pretty special. It’s something that will live with us for the rest of our lives and that’s pretty cool.”

“It’s been fun to reflect on and it’s been great. I keep saying to those 12, ‘we’ll always have that moment in time where that’s for us’, and that’s pretty special. It’s something that will live with us for the rest of our lives and that’s pretty cool to have, to be honest.

“What we are as a Ryder Cup Team also is what we are as a Tour and it’s every member of the Tour, it’s every member of staff, it’s all the people that come out of the European Tour that would have enjoyed that moment.

“The next few weeks for me is being out on Tour and trying to get back to playing a bit of golf. But shooting 84-64 is not really going to make any difference in my mind at this moment in time. I’m going to enjoy 2018 for all the good things that it brought.”
