A new captain for 2010 European Ryder Cup Team

Colin Montgomery’s normally droll features gave way to a very, very broad smile. Defying all expectation,the Scot has been given the captaincy of the European team for the next 2010 Ryder Cup. It was expected Jose Maria Olazabel would get the job.

Another hopeful was Scotlands  Sandy Lyle he was very dissapointed in not getting the job and has said Although I am disappointed personally, I am genuinely delighted for Colin who has my congratulations and support. “Colin will be an excellent captain, I wish him every success in leading the European team to victory,” said Lyle. The 50-year-old former Open and US Masters champion is the only one of Europe’s ‘famous five’ of the 1980s not to have been made captain, Nick Faldo, Seve Ballesteros, Bernhard Langer and Ian Woosnam have all lead the team. I dont think his walking off in the rain incident did him any favours.
