Europe captain Padraig Harrington has selected Robert Karlsson as his initially vice-captain for subsequent year’s Ryder Cup in Wisconsin.

Karlsson, 50, continues in the role following assisting Thomas Bjorn as Europe beat the United states 17½-10½ to regain the trophy in Paris past calendar year.

“Any individual associated in 2018 would have viewed this as a no-brainer choose,” stated Harrington, 48.

“He’s very sensible, incredibly straight, he does not enable the emotions get included.”

Karlsson made two appearances in the Ryder Cup as a participant, supporting Europe to victory at the K Club in 2006 and participating in in the defeat at Valhalla in 2008.

“It is fantastic,” explained the Swede.

“Padraig questioned me a small when back and I am really hunting forward to this course of action and getting part of a team all over again and helping Padraig alongside the way.”

The 2020 Ryder Cup will be played at Whistling Straits Golf Club in Wisconsin, United States from 25-27 September 2020.
