And after Thomas Bjorn led Europe to victory last October those on the winning the European Team, including Rory Mcllroy and Justin Rose, have been out-spoken in declaring they want "continuation" in the naming of the 2020 European Captain.

Harrington is the third Irishman in four matches to captain Europe after McGinley and Darren Clarke, who was at the helm in a 2016 defeat at Hazeltine.

"Because you are putting it on the line when you become Ryder Cup captain".

Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: "Padraig Harrington says he has been encouraged by the support for him as the new Ryder Cup captain but it hasn't done enough to increase the confidence of punters".

He said: "I felt it was the right time for me to go for it". I suppose you could look at this as being a natural progression, you move on from player to vice captain to captain.

"I think what they are really saying is that they liked what they saw and they would like a continuation of what they have seen and not to rock the boat too much".

"I've won three majors in my career but taking the Ryder Cup captaincy is a different level", he said. "I have to ensure that I find an edge to make the team perform to the best of their abilities and hopefully get a win".

Harrington played in the biennial event in six consecutive contests, including winningm teams in 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2010. "I have to be a confident captain as much as I need 12 confident players".

It's vital to serve an apprenticeship as a vice-captain so that, when you get your turn in the top job, you know every detail and you also know how important your backroom team is. I want to hopefully leave the Ryder Cup and the European Tour in a better place after two years.

I think it's fair to describe the appointment of Harrington as a no-brainer.

The highlight of Harrington's playing career came in a 14-month span from 2007-08 during which he captured three majors, winning The Open in consecutive years at Carnoustie and Royal Birkdale and adding a PGA Championship title at Oakland Hills.

"It's obviously great for Ireland, and there's no doubt that Padraig Harrington is the best man for the job on this occasion", McGinley told Sky Sports.

USC Won't Let Kliff Kingsbury Talk To The Jets Or Cardinals
Most of the time, if an assistant has the opportunity to leave to become a head coach, his employer won't stand in his way. In an interview with ESPN, Kingsbury opened up on being fired from Texas Tech and why he accepted the job at USC.

"Steve's a solid bloke", Harrington had said in October. "You just have to know the man behind the scenes". He's tough but very straight. As a player you are very one-dimensional about doing your thing and getting on with performing.
