Harrington named as Ryder Cup vice-captain

The Dubliner will help captain Clarke along with Paul Lawrie and Thomas Bjorn

Padraig Harrington, Paul Lawrie and Thomas Bjorn have been appointed as assistant captains to Darren Clarke for this year’s Ryder Cup.

Clarke believes their “wealth of experience and knowledge” will be an invaluable asset this autumn as Europe bid for an unprecedented fourth consecutive victory in the contest.

“The three bring a wealth of experience and knowledge and their input will be invaluable to Europe’s cause. I could not have asked for anybody better to be standing shoulder to shoulder with me in the bid to bring the Ryder Cup home.

“I have known and been close to Thomas for many years and I know just how passionate he is about team golf’s greatest competition. He has had a major influence already both on and off the course at previous Ryder Cups, and I know that will continue at Hazeltine.

“Padraig’s outstanding career has included three major championship successes, and his presence in the team room will bring a big confidence factor to Europe’s 12 representatives.

“Paul is a highly-respected major championship winner and knows exactly what it will take to retain the Ryder Cup.”
