LONDON: European Ryder Cup captain Jose Maria Olazabal has named experienced players Thomas Bjorn, Darren Clarke and Paul McGinley as three of his four vice-captains for next month’s title defence against the US. Olazabal will announce his final vice-captain, as well as his two wild-card player selections, on August 27 for the 12-man team ahead of the September 28-30 match play competition at Medinah, Illinois. “My own experiences as a vice captain in 2008 and 2010 taught me that you need a lot of help that week,” said the Spaniard. “This Ryder Cup, like so many in the past, will come down to who shows the most character under pressure. It is certain to be close but I am confident we have the players to bring the Cup back home with us.”
