Three-time major victor Padraig Harrington has been confirmed as Europe's captain for the 2020 Ryder Cup.

Europe were beaten 17-11 on their last attempt to retain the trophy in the United States and, while McGinley believes it will be a tall order to do so this time around at Whistling Straits, he believes Harrington should have plenty of reason for encouragement.

The three-time major champion was widely tipped to take over from Thomas Bjorn after making it clear he wanted the job in October, and became the favourite after Lee Westwood took himself out of the running.

The 47-year-old Irishman has served as vice-captain for the past three Ryder Cups, most recently under Thomas Bjorn last year when Europe regained the trophy outside Paris. And I don't take it lightly.

'It's not something I take on without a certain amount of trepidation.

She said she wanted the agreement to be declared void, explaining that she had gained the courage to speak out because of the #MeToo movement.

"I think what they are really saying is that they liked what they saw and they would like a continuation of what they have seen and not to rock the boat too much". Winning this event on foreign soil is, as recent scorelines at both Hazeltine and Le Golf National prove, perhaps the most hard task in the game, and Harrington recognises that it will, in his words, "put my legacy on the line". "I want to be a help to the players and to leave the Ryder Cup in the better place".

Harrington played in the biennial event in six consecutive contests, including winningm teams in 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2010.

Harrington played in six Ryder Cups and was on the winning team four times.

Former captain Paul McGinley welcomed the appointment.

Couples captained the USA to three straight Presidents Cup triumphs from 2009 to 2013 and was a vice for the next two, but in 2017 he stated he felt his opportunity to oversee a Ryder Cup had "passed by".

"It does make my job easier that I feel I have the confidence of the players", Harrington added.

Considered among the greatest to play the game, Woods got his first taste of Ryder Cup leadership by serving as a vice-captain to Davis Love III at Hazeltine in 2016 as a string of back issues blighted his illustrious career.

"You can't do everything as a captain, your very much defined by the quality of your vice-captains and you have to rely on them a lot".

"He wants to win the Masters and those words are coming out but his actions are not that way at all". I strongly looked at the fact that we are going to a golf course that is at least European style. "You just have to know the man behind the scenes".
