Europes’s leading players are giving welcomed support to Paul McGinley in his quest to becoming the next Ryder Cup captain. They think he should be the main contender to replace Jose Maria Olazabal as captain for the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles and he will have the home advantage this time especially as Europe haven’t lost the cup on home soil since 1993 at The Belfry.
McGinley has been quite successful in team golf in the past. He’s played in three winning Ryder Cup teams and has holed the winning putt 10 years ago. Rory McIlroy and Peter Hanson have both giving McGinley their backing, who was one of Olazabal’s vice-captains at the magical Medinah comeback.
The Irishman has also captained Great Britain and Ireland to wins in the Seve Trophy twice, McIlroy said: “He was fantastic there and has also been a fantastic vice-captain.”
McGinley wears his heart on his sleeve and is as passionate about the Ryder Cup as anyone that iv’e known to be involved in the whole set-up in the past. I think he would make a great a captain and he will also have the respect of his players and his peers. Role on 2014!
