Langer Uncertain of His Vice-Captain

RSS

European Ryder Cup captain Bernhard Langer has yet to decide who his vice-captain will be.

Langer was named as captain during the first round of last week's Irish Open and admitted he had had little time to weigh his options.
 
'It was kind of a surprise that I found out that quickly. I thought it would happen in another week or so,' Langer told the Press Association.
 
'I will think about vice-captain and other help I might need in the next few weeks and months, there is no immediate rush to make that decision.
 
Langer, in Malmo for the Scandinavian Masters which starts on Thursday, added: 'I played in 10 Ryder Cups as a player and I took a lot of time to think whether I should have another go at playing or whether I want to contend as a captain.'
 
'I haven't been playing great this year but I'm not planning to quit - I love golf and I look forward to the Seniors Tour.'
 
'It was not easy but I came up with the conclusion that it's the right time for me to be captain and I was very pleased with the support I got from the committees.
 
'I understand it was unanimous which is great news for me and I'm very excited about the challenge.'
