He captained the team in 2002.
Ireland's Paul McGinley will captain Europe in the 2014 Ryder Cup.
Colin Montgomerie, Europe and Corey Pavin, USA.
There was no Ryder Cup in 2011, as it is held only every 2 years.
It is a golf tournament between the American team and English team.
In the Ryder cup there are only two teams, American and European.
It was Nick Faldo.
It was Tom Watson.
There are many factors but the captain has to have a good reputation among fellow golfers and preferably be a former PGA Champion. I'm sure there are other factors at stake as well. The 2010 team USA captain is Corey Pavin and team Europe captain is Colin Montgomerie. Both are very experienced golfers and near the same age (50). Corey has 27 professional wins and Colin has 40 wins. My preview of the 2010 Ryder Cup is here aussiepunter.com/news/sport/2010-ryder-cup-preview
Paul McGinley for the 2014 competition
Samuel ryder donated the cup 1927. it was in 1985 when the European team won it the first time.
No, Tiger Woods has never captained the US team. He won't until he's about 50 if he ever does.
He captained Europe to Victory in 2004.
They are all Americans only in the team.
The first Ryder cup was played in 1927 at Worchester Country Club, Worcester, Massachusetts. The matches were between the United States and Great Britain. The US captain was Walter Hegan, the GB captain was Ted Ray. The US won 9 1/2- 2 1/2.
The Ryder Cup is played between the USA and representatives from countries in Europe playing together as a team. So most countries in the world do not take part in the Ryder Cup.
Peter Wilson was the captain of the Australian World Cup team in 1974.
He captained the victorious 2002 side, but he did not play a match as captain.
Walter Hegan has captained USA six times.
