Harrington to cut US schedule in Ryder Cup
BELEK, Turkey — Padraig Harrington has revealed he is to cut back on his PGA Tour schedule to play more in Europe ahead of his expected appointment as the 2020 European Ryder Cup captain.
Harrington remains odds-on favourite to be handed the captaincy role in December and this despite suggestions there is one and possibly two other names being mooted to challenge him for the Whistling Straits position.
Harrington’s remarks, after muscling his way to a share of second behind fellow Irishman Paul Dunne on the opening day of the Turkish Airlines Open, is just further proof, if needed, he will become the third Irishman in four Ryder Cups to captain Europe.
“It does look like I’ll have a tight schedule in the States next year,” said Harrington on Thursday.
