Olazabal Doesn't Want 2014 Captaincy

Published:

Jose Maria Olazabal has said he does not intend to lead the European side at Gleneagles in the 2014 Ryder Cup.

The Spaniard masterminded Europe's historic comeback from 10-4 down to claim a 14.5-13.5 win in Medinah against America's strongest ever team on paper.

"Clearly I won't do it again," said Olazabal, who believes several people could be suited to the role, including his four vice-captains from Medinah - Paul McGinley, Thomas Bjorn, Miguel Angel Jimenez and Darren Clarke - who are currently also the bookie's favourites.

"It would be unfair for me to just name one for the next Ryder Cup," said Olazabal, he also outlined Scot Paul Lawrie, part of the 2012 winning side, as another potential contender.

"Once they do it there is Lee Westwood and Padraig Harrington. There is a list of eight or nine guys that have a chance of doing it," he said.
