Davis Love III Will be 2012 Ryder Cup Captain
You're not going to meet a lot of people that hate Davis Love III. He's an older golfer, that still has some game, and has played professionally since 1985. Along with that, he has won 20 PGA Tour events in three decades, and still thinks he's the type of guy that can play for a team instead of captain it.
But realistically, he makes the most sense to be in charge of the Americans in 2012, and it appears that is the case. GolfChannel.com is reporting that Love will be the guy, and that the PGA of America will announce the decision in the next few months.
How has Love done at the Ryder Cup over the years? Well, about as well as any of the other Americans. He sports a 9-12-5 record in six matches, and was on the losing side as an assistant captain this season in Wales. The thing is, you must look at the Americans as a whole since 1999. They haven't won a lot, and most of the guys wearing red, white and blue have a bad record.
So, yes, Love will be in charge in 2012. I couldn't think of something I'd want more doing the job, could you?
