Colin Montgomerie will lead the European Ryder Cup challenge for 2010 Ryder Cup
Montgomerie was unanimously chosen by the 15-man committee after an hour and 10 minutes meeting.
He immediately launched his captaincy by declaring that he expects to be granted an extra captains pick. Monty was clearly delighted with the honour – “This is obviously one of my proudest moments,
It is a huge responsibility having lost the last Ryder Cup. It is important we do everything we can to claim back the Ryder Cup in 2010. It just seems the time is right for me to take the helm here and be captain.”
