McGinley calls up further assistance

Paul McGinley, Europe’s Ryder Cup captain, has named Padraig Harrington, Jose Maria Olazabal and Miguel Angel Jimenez (right) as his remaining vice-captains. Des Smyth and Sam Torrance have already been appointed vice-captains. “I know it’s been common in the past to have three or four vice-captains but I’ve gone for five because I feel an extra person is justified due to the additional workload which comes from being the home team,” McGinley said.
