At the press conference where he was unveiled as the new Ryder Cup captain for 2014, Paul McGinley has confirmed he will do something to honour Seve Ballesteros again at Gleneagles.
While talking about his captaining apprenticeships, McGinley said: "There is a really good infrastructure on The European Tour, it is the Seve Trophy, it is the Vivendi Trophy and I would love to see that tournament grow from strength to strength. It is very much a part of the Seve legacy."
On Ballesteros, McGinley added: "I can assure you one of the things I want to do as captain is continue the Seve legacy. I don't know how I'm going to go about that yet. I'll leave that for discussions later on but I will be continuing that legacy.
"Seve was a guy that I knew pretty well. I played under him as a captain. I've been very fortunate.
"If you look at all the captains I've played under - besides my three Ryder Cup Captains - I've also played under Monty, I've played under José Maria and I've also played under Seve. So I've been very fortunate. I have a vast amount of experience playing under a who's who of European golf over the last decade and even more."
