LOVE, CLARKE GET RYDER CUP NOD FOR all its task-forcing and finger-pointing about its atrocious recent Ryder Cup record, the US squad is taking the surprising move of backing one of its recent defeated captains to reverse the trend in 2016. Davis Love III, whose side coughed up a 10-6 lead at Medinah in 2012, will be officially announced as the PGA of America’s selection to lead the American side on home turf at Hazeltine National in Minnesota next September. Love is the first to return this quickly as US captain since Jack Nicklaus led the sides in 1983 and ’87. The Americans have won the Ryder Cup just once since 1999. The appointment of Love was well received from the perspective that he is still current as a player and so retains the relatability that 2014 captain Tom Watson had arguably lost. Love was also regarded as a highly organised yet relaxed captain in Chicago; his side was simply over-run by a white-hot European outfit in the singles matches. On the other side of the pond, Darren Clarke is set to lead next year’s European side. The popular Northern Irishman has served as an assistant captain twice and played on five Ryder Cup sides. “I am naturally extremely proud to be selected as European Ryder Cup captain for 2016,” Clarke said. MORE> _______________________________ NO TIGER SIGHTINGS UPCOMING TIGER Woods has made good on his promise a fortnight ago not return to competitive play until his game is ready. The former world No.1 hasn’t entered this week’s Honda Classic, which was originally on his playing schedule. It’s a double absence for Woods, who by not starting the Honda event is officially out of next week’s WGC–Cadillac Championship so won’t start there even if he wants to. Despite being a seven-time winner of the WGC event at Doral, Woods’ ranking has slid outside the top-50, rendering him ineligible for the elite-field event. The two upcoming tournaments most likely to capture his attention are the Arnold Palmer Invitational from March 19 to 22 and The Masters from April 9 to 12.
