Watson Named U.S. Ryder Cup Team Captain

PGA of America introduced Tom Watson as the captain of the 2014 United States Ryder Cup team this morning on the Today Show.

The U.S. is going with someone who has won on foreign soil before. Watson was also the Ryder Cup captain when the U.S. team last won in Europe in 1993.

The 61-year old is an eight time major championship winner and won the Senior PGA Championship in 2011. The U.S. has lost seven of the past nine Ryder Cups.

Tom Watson spoke today about the honor. "Indeed it's an honor to be the captain again for the team. It's been 19 years and frankly when he called me to start the process, and he called me over a year ago to start the process of thinking about being the captain, I said, boy I've been waiting for this call for a long time. Well, the most important thing is we're going to pull out all the stops to beat you guys. The bottom line is to win, that's the most important thing. We'll do it in style and the grace in which we play the game. We're tired of losing. The idea of being captain for a team of youngsters will be questioned. Why Watson, being the old guy be the captain? I deflect that very simply by saying, we play the same game. I play against these kids at the Masters, I play against them at the British Open, the Open Championship, the Greenbrier Classic. We play the same game and they understand that, I understand that and It's my challenge simply to maybe set the stage with a little extra inspiration for them to got out, along with some Watson luck, which I referred to in an interview earlier today, that propelled us to a victory in 1993. The pressure is incredibly strong. I believe the pressure playing in the Ryder Cup and being captain is great, or greater, than playing for yourself in any major championship."

The 2014 Ryder Cup will be played in Scotland.
