Zach Johnson reveals worst part of being US Ryder Cup captain

Zach Johnson has revealed the worst part of being US Ryder Cup captain will be "sitting guys" out in the foursomes and fourballs, following a GOLF interview.

Johnson was speaking to the publication during this week's Fortinet Championship, which marks the start of the PGA Tour Fall Series

GolfMagic took a closer look at the potential pairings we might see at the Ryder Cup in two weeks' time at Marco Simone in Rome, Italy.

Team USA are bidding to win the Ryder Cup for a first time on European soil since 1993.

Johnson admits he knew what he was signing up to as Ryder Cup captain, but deciding who to bench during each of the four sessions will be the toughest thing he has to encounter during the week. 

The two-time major champion also explained how all 12 players in his team will be fully responsible should they retain the Ryder Cup.

But if they lose, it will partly be his own fault. 

Johnson told GOLF

"At this point in this captainship the worst part of my job is sitting guys, you know? I’d like for all the guys to play every session, can’t do that either, but that’s the way it is and everybody knows that. I kind of know what I’m signing up for. It’s what I signed up for, I love responsibility, I love difficulty, I love being pushed and somewhat being uncomfortable if that makes sense. I do know that if we win this, it will be those 12 guys. I mean that sounds really obvious, but it will be. It will be them playing golf and winning the Ryder Cup for Team USA. If we lose this, I think there’s probably some merit some of that can go on me. And I fully accept that, that’s what I signed up for."

One of Johnson's vice captains Stewart Cink made a bizarre claim ahead of the Ryder Cup earlier this week.
