Garcia hails Harrington's experience
Padraig Harrington's experience makes him the ideal captain for Europe's 2020 Ryder Cup clash in the US, according to Sergio Garcia.
The 38-year-old Spaniard became the Ryder Cup's record points scorer in September when he secured three points in Europe's 17.5-10.5 win against the USA at Le Golf National in Paris to take his overall tally to 25.5 points.
Having tasted victory on six occasions from nine appearances in the biennial tournament, Garcia knows what it takes for a captain to be successful.
And with three-time major winner Harrington confirmed as captain for the 2020 showdown at Whistling Straits, Garcia feels the Irishman has the credentials to lead the team to victory in the tougher environment of playing on American soil.
The 2017 Masters champion told Express Sport: "Hopefully he does great. Obviously we want Europe to do well and it is not going to be easy because it is in the US. It is always a little bit harder there.
"But he has got a lot of experience, he has played many Ryder Cups and done well. He has had a great career and it will be interesting to be a Ryder Cup captain. Hopefully he helps the European team to retain the cup."
