Harrington can make great Ryder Cup captain - Garcia
Sergio Garcia says he expects Padriag Harrington to do a great job if selected as captain of Europe for the Ryder Cup in 2020.
The Irish three-time major winner is the overwhelming favourite to get the nod to skipper the Europeans when they head to Whistling Straits to defend the Ryder Cup having regained the trophy in France in September.
Harrington has plenty of experience battling the Americans at the biennial event having featured six times as a player, four of those appearances resulting in Europe coming out on top.
The 47-year-old has since worked as a vice-captain on three occasions and was part of skipper Thomas Bjorn's staff for the 17 1/2-10 1/2 triumph at Le Golf National this year.
Garcia, who was also part of that victorious Europe squad, has now given his backing to Harrington, believing he will have learnt plenty working under Bjorn.
The 2017 Masters champion told Sky Sports: "He's been a great Ryder Cup player for us. He's played the European Tour for so many years and I think he could be a great Ryder Cup captain and hopefully he will be one.
"The talks seem to be heading towards Padraig. Every captain brings something different to the table and I am sure the next one will do the same.
"Thomas did well, I think there are things the next captain could learn from the way Thomas handled things so I think it's just a matter of trying to improve every time."
