Westwood wants Ryder Cup captaincy
Lee Westwood has thrown his name into the hat to become Europe's Ryder Cup captain in 2020.
After threatening to win a major for many years, the Englishman narrowly missed out at The Masters and The Open Championship in 2010, his best years now appear to be behind him.
Consequently, Westwood is now thinking of his plans for the future and captaining Europe at the Ryder Cup in 2020 seems to be a big part of them.
"Two or three years, then think about the Ryder Cup captaincy. If I put my name in for the captaincy in four years’ time then I can think about the seniors after that," Westwood said.
Westwood is unlikely to qualify for this year's Ryder Cup in Minnesota as he currently sits in 37th place on the European Points List and 29th place on the World Points List.
However, even if he does not qualify, the 42-year-old is still desperate to be involved in some capacity or another.
"I'm happy to go along and get some captaincy experience as vice-captain," he explained.
"If you've played in nine Ryder Cups you've got the respect of the players and feel like you can help.
"I have played under nine different captains, so I've experienced all there is to experience in that regard."
