Padraig Harrington 'Thrilled' To Be Team Europe Captain For 2020 Ryder Cup

"It is a tremendous honour to be named Ryder Cup Captain and I am relishing the next 20 months as we work towards Whistling Straits and Europe's defense of the trophy".

Having worked under a host of captains before, Harrington admitted he is most likely to resemble Langer, who led Europe to a comprehensive victory over the United States in 2004.

The three-time major victor is the clear favourite to succeed Thomas Bjorn at Whistling Straits, where Europe will be bidding to defend the trophy won in Paris a year ago.

McIlroy has competed in the last five Ryder Cups, winning in 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2018.

Thomas Bjorn has given his backing to Padraig Harrington, who will succeed him as Europe's Ryder Cup captain for the tournament in 2020.

"Becoming captain is not something I went into lightly", Harrington said after he was appointed.

"I can only look at his actions".

"The second thing is the golf course that we're playing on is a European style golf course, it's a golf course that really suits the European style". Thankfully we are going to Whistling Straits which is just a strong golf course.

Harrington has promised to "find an edge" but it's the United States who are favourites to land the Ryder Cup on home soil at 8/13, with Harrington a 6/4 shot to win the match and defend the trophy the Europeans won so emphatically in Paris a year ago.

"I know we're going to a new venue".
