Players react to Harrington captaincy

Pádraig Harrington

PADRAIG HARRINGTON has admitted the prospect of leading Europe at the 2020 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits is both a thrilling and daunting prospect. Not only did he compete as a player six times and earn 10.5 points (he was on the winning side in 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2010), but he has served as a Vice Captain in the last three contests, of which Europe have won twice.

The three-time Major Champion has extensive experience with Europe in the Ryder Cup, playing six times whilst also been a vice-captain for the last three matches.

Harrington follows Jose Maria Olazabal (2012), Paul McGinley (2014), Darren Clarke (2016) and Thomas Bjorn (2018) as recent captains of the European Ryder Cup squad.

The Irishman will become the third captain from the Emerald Isle in four Ryder Cups.

Harrington succeeds Thomas Bjorn for the 43rd instalment of the competition after an announcement at the European Tour's headquarters in Wentworth.

Having said that, I doubt if we'll see the course set up in the same way as it would be for a major.

'It's not something I take on without a certain amount of trepidation.

I think it's fair to describe the appointment of Harrington as a no-brainer.

"I strongly looked at the fact we were going to a golf course that is at least European-style. I want to be a help to the players and to leave the Ryder Cup in the better place". We've had some great captains and I've learnt from all of them. He loves the Ryder Cup.

Padraig Harrington poses with the Ryder Cup after being appointed as the European Ryder Cup Captain for The 2020 Ryder Cup.

A victor in four of his six Ryder Cup appearances as a player, Harrington was also a vice-captain in 2014 and 2016 under Paul McGinley and Darren Clarke.

"I know we're going to a new venue". While the US captain for 2020 has not yet been announced, 2017 Presidents Cup captain and Wisconsin native Steve Stricker is perceived as the favorite to lead the American squad in his home state.

"I know it's tough to win in the States, " Harrington said.

"I want to be a winning captain".

I really feel conscious that I have to find that edge.

Harrington said he knew what his goal would be over the next two years with respect to the players.

Pavard played in six of France's seven games at the World Cup finals, only missing their final group game against Denmark, and he scored his first worldwide goal in the last-16 clash with Argentina.
