Floyd to be assistant captain on American Ryder Cup team
LOS ANGELES (AP)
Raymond Floyd is returning to the Ryder Cup as an assistant captain for the second time in the past three matches.
U.S. captain Tom Watson said Tuesday that Floyd would be one of his assistants. The Ryder Cup will be played Sept. 26-28 at Gleneagles and Scotland. The Americans have not won the cup since 2008, when Floyd was an assistant on the team. They have not won on European soil since 1993.
Watson previously said Andy North would be an assistant.
Floyd was the Ryder Cup captain in 1989 when Europe retained the cup with a tie. Watson was on that 1989 team. Watson was captain in 1993 and took Floyd as one of his wild-card picks.
European captain Paul McGinley is expected to announce his assistants soon.
