Monty: Watson Just The Man To Deal With The American Team "Egos"

From an unbylined Sky Sports story:

"It is also a selection that will keep the Ryder Cup on the front pages in America, more so than some of the other candidates, while as a captain in '93 he was very well respected and he's even more respected now. There's a lot of pressure on him but I'm sure he can handle it - and the egos in the American team."

Tom Watson has a reputation among his peers as a real know-it-all to the point where is he is referred to as Carnac, Jr. Jack, of course, is the original Carnac.

And who is Carnac III? Future RC captain Phil Mickelson.

If the Euros want to go "outside the box," why not select Jack as their captain?

I agree, Monty for Captain. He's the best hype man since Flava Flav

Monty is 100% correct with his observation that "will keep the Ryder Cup on the front pages in America, more so than some of the other candidates", which is IMO the true role of the Captain.
Perhaps the Euros counter with Brian Barnes as captain w/ Gary Wolstenholme and his mother as the fearless #2 and #3's

Y'know...mix it up a bit.

Excellent suggestion!!

Barnes was the MA Jiminez of his day. His idea of team uniforms would be whatever you could pick up at a Charity Shop, shorts are OK. Biggest budget item would be beer.
