Olazabal keen on Ryder Cup captaincy

Jose Maria Olazabal is said to be keen on taking over the role as Ryder Cup captain as Monty has expressed his has no intention of staying after his teams heroic performance of winning the Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor yesterday. Monty has backed the Spaniard to take up the position saying Olazabal has all the requirements and experience to be successful should he fell well enough when the Ryder Cup returns in 2012.

It's been mentioned by the players and by Monty and we talked about it a little, but there is just one issue and that is my health," Olazabal said, "I would love to do it, but you have to fulfil certain things.

"For instance I think you need to be close to the players and play with them during the qualifying process, compete with them if possible, and that's why it is the only question mark, but time will tell."

And if his health was okay and he was asked? "There's only one answer - yes.

"It's always an honour to represent the European Tour and an entire continent, it has always been this way and it will always be like this."

Olazabal was involved behind the scenes on European soil for the first time, and voiced his appreciation for the fans at Celtic Manor this weekend.

"It was the first time I have been a vice-captain at the Ryder Cup on this side of the Atlantic and I could feel the difference - the crowd support, the atmosphere," he said.

"The Ryder Cup, I've always said is a special and unique event and it has been great to be a part of it." Best Blogger Tips
