McGinley Team Europe's 2014 Captain

Paul At His Best
Absolutely glorious news coming from Dubai  where the European golfing committee decided that Paul McGinley a Dublin man will lead the troops into battle in Gleneagles in 2014.

McGinley, who has had vast experience managing European sides in the past has been chosen ahead of previous captain Montgomerie. Who has a residence just a few miles from th course. McGinley will captain the team in Gleneagles with the support of the entire continent, possibly one of the most satisfying roles in professional golf. He will forever hold the accolade of first Irish Ryder cup captain one of many to come in the not so distant future.

McGinley is one of Ireland's most successful golfers beginning his brilliant career in Grange Golf Club in County Dublin Ireland near where I reside. However, it is not just the course or the club that made Growing up in the company of the best junior squad in Ireland Including Leslie Walker, British Boys Champion..Paul's brother (Michael) was at just about the same standards Paul was at at the time. Paul's brother was capped at junior level and of course that helped Paul along always making sure he was just that little bit better thank his younger brother
Paul has received great support from the European players and committee members alike. Well deserved swell.

I would hope that it will be an Irish trio of captaincies with McGinley then Darren Clarke in 2016 and finishing it off with Padraig Harrington in 2018 that would be a nice accolade to have as the Irish golf is in a great level at this moment and I can only see it getting better.

Good Luck Paul!!
