AAP logoAAP 11/01/2017

Jim Furyk has been named as the United States captain for the 2018 Ryder Cup golf tournament in France.

The PGA of America have announced the 46-year-old, a veteran of nine playing appearances, will succeed Davis Love as the US seek to defend the trophy they won at Hazeltine last October.

Fred Couples was also a leadership contender for the match at Le Golf National near Paris but Furyk, a vice-captain to Love last year, was the preferred choice of the US Ryder Cup committee.
