McGinley gets Ryder Cup nod
Last updated: 16th January 2013
Ireland's Paul McGinley has been confirmed as the captain of the European Ryder Cup team for the 2014 event at Gleneagles in Scotland.
McGinley had long been the favourite to succeed Jose Maria Olazabal, but 2010 skipper Colin Montgomerie has been touted as a possible contender for the role in recent weeks.
"I'm obviously thrilled and delighted to lead the European team, it is a huge honour," a visibly elated McGinley said at a press conference in Abu Dhabi.
"I've been there many times as a player but it will be a new experience as captain.
"It's a week that I'm really looking forward to."
The 46-year-old Dubliner will become Ireland's first ever Ryder Cup captain next year and he will hope to extend the European winning streak to three tournaments on the bounce.
