Lowry To Play With McDowell And Bjorn At Wentworth

Thomas Bjorn adds Westwood, McDowell, Harrington and Donald as Ryder Cup vice-captains

McDowell has won two French Open titles at Le Golf National and he said: "I know that I can contribute a huge amount to the team this year given my experience at the venue and appearances in past Ryder Cups".

Westwood has played in every Ryder Cup since his debut in 1997 at Valderrama, and he has compiled a 20-18-6 record.

Harrington has made six appearances for Europe and has been vice captain for the last two matches.

"They all possess strong personalities but each of them will also bring something different to the team, giving us great balance".

Donald and McDowell have both played on four winning teams for Europe.

Between them, the glittering quartet of new recruits have all been on at least three winning sides - Westwood has been part of seven, would you believe - and have amassed a grand cumulative total of 56 points for the Ryder Cup cause.

The points-based system will determine eight of the twelve golfers selected to the team, with four wildcards reserved for Bjorn and his vice-captains to hand out as they see fit.

Westworld: "I've been on ten Ryder Cup sides, but never been involved with the role sort of behind the scenes, and as a vice captain".

2018 Ryder Cup: Thomas Bjorn opts for experienced vice-captains

For Harrington, it's a role he's held before and he hopes that experience will count come September.

The 42nd Ryder Cup will be held at Le Golf National in Paris this September. Team Europe looks to be strong on the course, and the supporting group has the stature to reflect that.

"Five is, for me, the right number but when I've spoken to past captains they would also say to you that that is the right number".

"It's the best place you can be as any sportsman". They have all experienced the feeling of success in the Ryder Cup.

"We have a history of having good people in those roles but I'm really, really happy with the people I have in the roles for this [tournament]".

The European Ryder Cup team is starting to take shape - at least on the coaching front.

Thomas Bjorn is playing in Wednesday's pro-am of the BMW PGA Championship here with Damian Lewis, the star of hit TV show Billions. There is no place in the world like a European Team room.

The 2018 Ryder Cup itself, the 42nd staging of the contest, will be played at Le Golf National, France, from September 28-30, where Europe will try to regain the trophy following defeat at Hazeltine National past year, with the aiming of extending an impressive winning record on home soil which stretches back to Valderrama in 1997.
