Padraig Harrington Named European Ryder Cup Captain for 2020

Padraig Harrington has been named the captain of the European team for the 2020 Ryder Cup matches at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin.

Harrington, a three-time major winner, has been a vice-captain in each of the last three editions after making six-straight appearances as a player (1999, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, and 2010). Four of those appearances as a player (02, 04, 06, 10) resulted in wins for Europe.

The 47-year old Irishman will follow Thomas Bjorn, who led Europe to a seven-point rout at Le Golf National in France.
