U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson has selected television analyst and two-time U.S. Open champion Andy North as a vice captain for next year's matches.

Watson made the announcement Wednesday at the PGA Tour's Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia.

North won the 1978 and 1985 U.S. Opens and played on the U.S. Ryder Cup team that lost to Europe in 1985.

Now a golf analyst for ESPN, North believes being around tour players makes him qualified to help Watson make solid choices for the team.

A points system will determine the top nine spots on the U.S. team and Watson will make three captain's picks.

The Ryder Cup will be held in September 2014 in Gleneagles, Scotland.
