I'm feeling old and oddly sentimental seeing Ryder Cup stalwarts Lee Westwood, Graeme McDowell, Padraig Harrington and Luke Donald joining Robert Karlsson as transitioning to cart driving roles. (You can read their comments here about the new gigs.)
Captain Thomas Bjorn's five assistants have much Ryder Cup playing experience but very little time behind the wheel, with only a few months to learn the intricacies of maximum passenger loads, ear piece chatter management and the best French versions of "cart on your left".
Of course, perhaps they'll just go the Team America route and appoint drivers for the assistant cart drivers.
Anyhow, let's hope we've maxed out the number of assistants at five...
