Love named United States Ryder Cup captain for 2016

Palm Beach Gardens: Former PGA Championship winner Davis Love III will captain the United States in the 2016 Ryder Cup match against holders Europe at Hazeltine in Minnesota, the PGA of America said on Tuesday.

It will be the second time Love, 50, has led the team in the biennial event as he oversaw the "Miracle of Medinah" defeat in 2012 when Europe stormed back from 10-6 down heading into the final day to win by 14-1/2 points to 13-1/2.

"I am here with the same goal as in 2012 but not as the same captain," Love said during his introductory news conference.

Love, who won his sole major at the 1997 PGA Championship, played in six consecutive Ryder Cups from 1993. He tasted victory on his first appearance and in 1999.

Europe have won eight of the last 10 Ryder Cups.
