Jim Furyk named as United States Ryder Cup captain for 2018


New American Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk says superstar Tiger Woods is in the mix to be part of his side taking on Europe in Paris next year.

Arnold Palmer was the last playing captain in 1963 on the US Ryder Cup team.

It was but one of many examples as to why Furyk, despite his 10-20-4 record in the biennial slugfest between the usa and Europe, calls the Ryder Cup his favorite event. Furyk played on nine consecutive teams starting in 1997, and he was an assistant captain to Davis Love III past year at Hazeltine in Minnesota. He set a PGA Tour record in August with a 58 in the final round of the Travelers Championship.

He holds the record with Phil Mickelson of the most US Ryder Cup matches lost (20).

Furyk has won 17 times on the PGA Tour, including the 2003 U.S. Open.

Furyk's first act as Ryder Cup Captain was to name Love as the first of his Vice Captains. To be sitting here as the 2018 captain is such an honour. "His experience, two captaincies and a vice- captaincy, will be priceless for me so I'm happy to have him by my side" Furyk was quoted as saying. "My main goal is to focus on being the best possible captain, to try and get the 12 best players possible and to provide that atmosphere and carry out the advice of the Ryder Cup committee".

She was then forced to dismiss Trump's suggestion that Farage should be appointed as United Kingdom ambassador to the US. However, according to Euractiv, neither Berlin nor Paris have indicated that their leaders are in line to visit with Mr.

"He's going to have everything written down in front of him, he's going to utilise the PGA of America and I think he's going to be a good captain".

Europe have already named Thomas Bjorn as their captain for the encounter at Le Golf National just outside Paris.

The U.S. won for the first time since 2008 under Love. "I wanted to know the guys and know the young players well".

"I'm a little more of a quiet leader", he said, "one to lead by example".

Furyk was ultimately overlooked for a playing role but remained on the team as one of Love's assistants as the United States won for the first time since 2008. He put a system in place and got the players behind it.

"It's no secret, it's been my favorite event my entire career", Furyk said Wednesday after being introduced by PGA of America president Paul Levy, a member of the six-person committee that appointed Furyk.
