Pádraig Harrington could be next Ryder Cup Captain

Pádraig Harrington, the talented Irish golfer has been appointed as one of the five assistant captains to Paul Mcginley’s European Ryder Cup team when they defend the title at Gleneagles later this month.

As soon as the matches end at Gleneagles, Harrington’s name will be mentioned along with those of Miguel Angel Jimenez, Thomas Bjorn and Darren Clarke as a potential skipper material in 2016 at Hazeltine, 2018 in France or in 2020 at Whistling Straits when he will be 49.
