Luke Donald (-400) (Bet $400 to win $100)

If Stenson does leave, oddsmakers are giving Luke Donald an 80% chance of taking over as the Ryder Cup Next Captain. The 44-year-old has five career wins on the tour and had his best performance this year at the Valspar Championship finishing T16. Most of his success has come on European Tour as he was ranked number one for 56 weeks starting in May of 2011. In Majors, his best finishes were T3 at the Masters in 2005 and the PGA Championship in 2006.

Robert Karlsson (+400) (Bet $100 to win $400)

As for Robert Karlsson, he has a 20% chance of becoming the next captain. Karlsson is also a veteran who turned pro in 1989. He has 12 wins in his career and has three top five finishes in majors during his career. His odds are significantly lower than Luke Donald but if they do decide to go in a different direction for the Ryder Cup, Karlsson makes the most sense as an alternate option.
