European Vice Captains for Ryder Cup 2010

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

Darren Clarke , Thomas Bjorn  and Paul McGinley  have been named by Europe Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie  as his vice captains. He was quite bullish during the announcement saying they had the qualities to help the team regain the Ryder Cup from the United States.

“They have all been part of successful European Ryder Cup teams in the past and know the players who will be part of the team. We all have huge respect from the players and respect in the team room and on the course is vital.”

“I think this is the strongest team we have ever assembled, on and off the course. It’s a fabulous time for European golf.”

Montgomerie still has to finalize his 12-man team, which will be chosen after August’s Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles one of the questions this selection raises is whether Darren can still play himself onto the team – having shown some great form recently…

U.S. captain Corey Pavin has selected four vice captains: Tom Lehman , Jeff Sluman , Davis Love and Paul Goydos .

The European side includes Swedes Henrik Stenson, Robert Karlsson, Alexander Noren and Peter Hanson, England’s Simon Dyson, Denmark’s Soren Kjeldsen, Spain’s Pablo Martin and Montgomerie.
