Paul McGinley, 2014 European Ryder Cup Captain
Who better to lead the European Team in the 2014 Ryder Cup than the same man who led the celebrations in 2002, after his famous 10-foot putt on the 18th green sealed victory for Europe. That was just the first of an incredible five out of five successes in the Ryder Cup for Paul - three as a player and two as Vice Captain. Not only is he an an outstanding and committed professional, he’s also hugely popular and an inspiration to many of today’s young golfers. Having proudly supported Paul for over ten years, we’re confident he can also inspire the European Team to another great victory. Congratulations Paul, you thoroughly deserve it.
