Ryder Cup Europe are floating the idea of appointing a captain for multiple dust-ups after a host of legends resigned their DP World Tour memberships, according to a report.
Per James Corrigan of The Daily Telegraph, it is said the 'corridors of power' are thinking of giving their European skippers the reigns for multiple Ryder Cups after the likes of Henrik Stenson, Lee Westwood, Sergio Garcia and Ian Poulter resigned from their home circuit and threw their future plans into chaos.
The LIV Golf players insisted they had 'no option' but to bring an anticlimactic end to their glittering careers on the former European Tour after they were sanctioned for playing in the inaugural breakaway tour event last June.
A sports arbitration panel sided with the DP World Tour and the circuit warned they would continue to fine players for competing in events without releases.
"The resignations, however, along with the sanctions imposed upon them, are a consequence of their own choices," the tour said in a statement.
European Ryder Cup skipper Luke Donald now has clarity over what his side will look in September.
And according to the paper, he could be in charge for the 2025 Ryder Cup at Bethpage Black.
There was speculation the aforementioned Poulter would lead the team in New York (potentially against Phil Mickelson) but that mouth-watering proposition is now a pipe dream.
Bernard Gallacher was the last man to lead Europe more than once and he told Corrigan:
Gallacher said it was sad to see Westwood, Garcia and Poulter 'walk away', but he added:
What do you make of Europe's chances in September? Will they win on U.S. soil for the first time in 30 years? Why not Tweet us your thoughts.
