• FOR THE WEEK OF SEpTEmbER 25 - OcTObER 1, 2023 • YOUR WEEKLY GUIDE TO TV ENTERTAINmENT Jesse L. Martin in "The Irrational" The 44th edition of the Ryder Cup returns as players tee off in Rome beginning Sept. 30 and finishing on Oct. 1, at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club. USA Network and NBC will feature live coverage. As the 2023 Ryder Cup gets underway, Team Europe aims to return to its win- ning ways after what was a dominant victory for Team U.S. in 2021 (19-9). While the Americans on paper look to have more talent, the Europeans have gone 7-3 in the past 10 Ryder Cups prior to the less-than-par performance at Whistling Straits. But Team Europe, now led by four-time Ryder Cup winner Luke Donald, is go- ing into this tournament having put together a team with a good balance of youth, talent and experience. With the likes of Rory McIlroy, Jon Rham, U.S. Open cham- pion Matt Fitzpatrick, Shane Lowry and the world No. 4-ranked Viktor Hovland of Norway, who is participating in his second Ryder Cup tournament. Having burst onto the scene making his Ryder Cup debut in 2021, Hovland has been excellent all season, having earned three top-five finishes, including defending his title at the Hero World Challenge. His proven ability to perform in big mo- ments and against the world's top golfers is proven in his performances. The Norwe- gian has placed in the Top 20 at The Masters, U.S. Open and The Open, and was a runner-up at the PGA Championship. Proving to be one of the best golfers all year, he's earned his spot at the Ryder Cup, and Team Europe will surely look to absorb some of that momentum. As the European side boasts elite talent, look for Team U.S. to come out with a strong game looking to defend its title for the first time and hoping to snap a decades-long losing streak. Catch all your 2023 Ryder Cup action live Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 on USA Network and NBC, as Team Europe tees off against the U.S. team at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club in Rome, Italy. Hovland looks to bring youthful spark at 2023 Ryder Cup By Roberto Jozef playerprofile By Adam Thomlison Q: Did Robert Downey Jr. do a third "Sherlock Holmes"? Or will he? At the end of the second movie, it said "The End?" (with a question mark). A: Is there already a third film with Robert Downey Jr. ("Iron Man," 2008) playing the legendary detec- tive Sherlock Holmes? No. Will there be? Probably. That's the best answer available right now. I say probably because a lot of work has been put into it already, and because the previous two were basically cash machines for Warner Bros. studios — the sequel, 2011's "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," earned more than half a million dollars at the box office. It was originally supposed to come out in 2020, but it's been cursed — by script rewrites, by director changes, and later by the pandemic. But everyone involved insists it's still going to happen. The latest assurance came in April of this year, from Susan Downey, one of the previous films' producers (and also Robert's wife), who told UnWrapped podcast that it's "in the hopper." "We're going to do it when it's right with the right people. But it is a pri- ority for the company and a priority for Robert." Previously, Jude Law, who plays Dr. Watson in the movies, said the new script would acknowledge all the time that's passed between films by making it pass for the characters as well. "We're going to play up the fact that they haven't seen each other for a long time, either," he told Entertain- ment Weekly in 2018. Robert Downey Jr. ON WARNER BROS.
