Tom Watson picks Andy North for Ryder Cup
Wednesday 03 July 2013
The United States captain, Tom Watson, has named TV commentator Andy North as one of his vice-captains for next year's Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.
North has worked for ESPN since 1993 after a career in which he won the US Open in 1978 and 1985, the latter victory securing his sole appearance in the Ryder Cup.
The 63-year-old failed to win a point from three matches as Europe won by five points at The Belfry. "I'm happy to have him on my side and in my ear and helping me bring the cup back from Europe this time," said Watson.
