Padraig Harrington has been named European Captain for the 2020 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, USA. The announcement marks the event’s third captain from the island of Ireland, following Darren Clarke (2016) and Paul McGinley (2014).

Harrington’s illustrious career includes a memorable triumph at the 2016 Portugal Masters in Vilamoura when, as an ever-present at the event, the Irishman gained a hugely popular victory.
