Monty Mum On Next Euro Captain, Names Only The Final Five

Colin Montgomerie isn't saying who he and his colleagues will consider for the next European Ryder Cup captaincy, except to narrow it down to five names.

Montgomerie is one of the five-man panel tasked with selecting the next European captain but he wasn’t giving much away when asked about the decision.

“I think there are five main candidates: Thomas Bjorn, Padraig Harrington, Lee Westwood, Miguel Angel Jiminez and Darren Clarke,” he said.

“There is no question that it is more difficult away from home. The Americans played their ‘wildcard’ this time in selecting Tom Watson as captain, but the question is where they go from here."

Not back to Tom Watson, that I know!
