A poll on USA Today’s website gives four choices for the next U.S. Ryder Cup captain: Davis Love III, Fred Couples, Paul Azinger and Johnny Miller. It’s fun to let yourself think about Miller for a minute. I’m not sure where the names came from, but Love has been a popular rumor. On Wednesday, Love spoke about his desire to captain the team in 2012 during a press conference at the Fall Series’ inaugural Sea Island stop, a tournament he is hosting.
“If you asked me two months ago, I’d have said no, I don’t want to take any chance on screwing up playing,” said Love, who has a 9-12-5 record as a player. “But now I look at it, I don’t want to take any chances on not getting to be the Ryder Cup captain.”
