Padraig Harrington will succeed Thomas Bjorn as European captain

Padraig Harrington has been confirmed as Europe's captain for the 2020 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin.

In the news conference to announce his appointment, Harrington highlighted his personality as being similar to that of Bernhard Langer, another European skipper who was immensely successful in forging a winning mentality.

After the last Ryder Cup in Paris, two very prominent members of the European team - Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy - gave their public backing to Padraig Harrington. "In light of the beating suffered by Darren Clarke in Minnesota in 2016, he knows that he faces ominous odds on a tricked-up links course that will be created to suit the Americans" longest hitters.

Speaking about his experience at Le Golf National, Harrington said: "You are always learning and it was a nice balanced vice-captaincy with different personalities; some good emotions, some good thinkers".

He said: "I felt it was the right time for me to go for it". You could look at this as being a natural progression, a move on from player to vice-captain to captain but it's not something that I take on without a certain amount of trepidation.

The person added that it was more hard to determine how to hold China to its commitments to better protect intellectual property. The S&P 500 Index has fallen about 8% since Trump and Xi agreed on a 90-day truce at their meeting in Argentina last month.

"I have played under, and been involved with, many wonderful European captains since I made my debut in the contest 20 years ago and I would like to think that my captaincy will be a mix of all of them".

Padraig Harrington says he "thought long and hard" about taking the Ryder Cup captaincy for 2020 on United States soil but believes it has come at the right time.

Harrington was a popular choice among Europe's victorious team to take on the captaincy. The PGA of America removed much of the rough at Medinah and Hazeltine to suit the American players, and I expect to see more of the same in Wisconsin.

"It is daunting because you want to do a good job".

"I will definitely take bits from all of them".

Chris Jericho has always done what he wants as evident by the fact he put on an entire wrestling cruise past year . Neville left WWE under somewhat controversial circumstances and has since been a major star in Europe and Japan.

Irishman Harrington added: "I know there's words there, but the actions nowhere near match up". I want to hopefully leave the Ryder Cup and the European Tour in a better place after two years.

"It's obviously great for Ireland, and there's no doubt that Padraig Harrington is the best man for the job on this occasion", McGinley told Sky Sports.

Harrington, who is now out of action after slipping and breaking a bone in his wrist, says selecting five vice-captains is "a must" and now favours three wildcard picks.

He said: "Steve's a solid bloke".

"You know when you're going up against a guy like that that he is mentally tough and strong". He's tough but very straight.

When Tasha K asked Carey if he ever told his mom about the abuse, he said he tried, but his way of telling her wasn't effective. Angelo Clary believes that his daughter moved in with Kelly when she was 18 and the family hasn't heard from her since 2016.
