The Ryder Cup hiatus, which has stretched to almost five months, will end on Wednesday when the European team captain for next year’s clash with the United States at Hazeltine will be named.
Darren Clarke is the overwhelming favourite to succeed Paul McGinley in seeking to continue a terrific European run in the event. In short, it would rank as a major shock if Clarke is not given the nod by the five-man selection panel but, because Wednesday morning inside the Wentworth Club’s Ryder Cup Room will make the first and last meeting of that committee and a vote must be taken, there cannot be certainty. History tells us that politics can play a part in these affairs, despite the streamlining of the selection process.
