Padraig Harrington's hopes of succeeding Thomas Bjorn as Europe's Ryder Cup captaincy at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin in 2020 have received a significant boost after the Irishman's credentials were endorsed by the world No 2, Justin Rose. The Irishman was the clear favourite to take charge at Whistling Straits in 2020, but Westwood has dubbed him "the flawless candidate" and said that he is "better equipped" to be captain on foreign soil.
The Englishman, who has been on the winning side on eight different occasions in the competition, revealed that he would much prefer to captain Europe in 2022 in Italy.
Harrington told Irish national radio station RTE last week that he wanted to be a Ryder Cup captain at some stage.
Steve Stricker is expected to be the American captain in his native Wisconsin, where he'll need the United States players to be pulling for each other better than appeared to be the case in their 17½-10½ hammering in the suburbs of Paris. Rory McIlroy also mentioned Harrington, who has played on six Ryder Cup teams, as the right man for the job. Whistling Straits in Wisconsin plays host to the 2020 Ryder Cup, where a USA team that got trounced in Paris will likely once again be favored.
The 45-year-old added later on Sky Sports News that he felt three-time major victor Harrington was the "perfect candidate" and "better equipped" to lead Europe's attempt to retain the trophy won in convincing style at Le Golf National, where both he and Harrington were vice-captains.
'I'd love to win more majors, as a kid that's what I dreamed.
"I think Padraig is a better candidate than me".
Westwood is not the only Euro to get behind Harrington for Whistling Straits.
The 47-year-old Dane selected both Westwood and Harrington as his vice-captains in this year's Ryder Cup in Paris, of which Europe emerged victorious for the fourth time in five tournaments against the USA. "I think the continuity in the European camp having all these vice captains this year and preparing for captaincy down the road has been a huge foundation of why we've been so good". "If he doesn't do it this time then I'm not sure...you've got to start fitting guys in", Rose said on Sky Sports News. "That would be great, I'd very keen on doing it there".
