Stricker would be 'honoured' to be USA captain at Ryder Cup

Steve Stricker would be “honoured and excited” to be given the chance to captain the United States at the 2020 Ryder Cup.

Stricker, 51, has been touted as a potential captain of USA for the event at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin in September 2020.

He captained the victorious USA team at the 2017 Presidents Cup and was a non-playing vice-captain at last year’s Ryder Cup.

Stricker is expected to assist Tiger Woods at this year’s Presidents Cup and said he would be thrilled to lead USA in 2020.

“I know about helping Tiger at the end of this year, and I enjoy being a part of that process with whoever the captain may be,” he told a news conference on Wednesday.

“As far as two years from now, I just don’t know yet. It’s something that I would be truly honoured and excited to do right there in my home state of Wisconsin and right down the road, couple hours down the road.

“But no one knows yet for sure. Got to hold off and put it in the PGA’s hands and the committee that’s making the decision and go from there.”
