Will Paul Azinger lead US team in the Ryder Cup 2010?

(This entry was originally posted in this blog on December 9, 2008 and the information is based on that time.)

Paul William Azinger, who led the U.S. team to their only victory in decades in the Ryder Cup, is not going to lead the team in the 2010 Ryder Cup which is going to be held at Wales. The PGA America will declare the new captain on November 11, 2008. Azinger told golfworld.com:

“All I can say is that it’s not going to be me,……You’ll find out who it is on Thursday.”

Earlier, Azinger told Golf World that he would be happy to lead the team once again but did not tell whether PGA America officials contacted him to retain his position.

The Ryder Cup is held after every two years between American and European golfers. Since 2002, European golf team held the trophy. They won the last two matches by record scores. As a player, Paul Azinger participated in 1989, 1991, 1993, and 2002. He captained in the 2008 and led the American team to victory. To win the cup, Azinger revamped the qualification process and picked his team members. Interestingly, he did not take Tiger Woods, who is considered one of the all times best golfers. Now the million dollar question is: Is Paul Azinger going resume the position of team captain? There is no answer yet. Only Ben Hogan had this rare opportunity of leading the American team in three Ryder Cup tournaments in 1947, 1949, and 1951. He won the tournament two times in 1947 and 1951. There is a strong possibility that Corey Pain will be chosen as the new captain of the team.
