Graeme named as vice captains for the 2020 Ryder Cup in September.

Martin Kaymer and Graeme McDowell will join Luke Donald and Robert Karlsson as vice captains for the 2020 Ryder Cup in September.

The duo form part of Padraig Harrington’s team for the event, which takes place at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin from September 24-26.

Graeme will undertake his second spell as vice captain, with two-time major winner Kaymer taking on the role for the first time after four appearances as a player (2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016), during which time he won an individual total of 6.5 points.

Graeme joined Padraig Harrington as part of the backroom team that helped captain Thomas Bjørn plot the stunning 17.5-10.5 victory over the United States at Le Golf National, France, in 2018.

The Northern Irish major winner has also appeared in the biennial contest on four occasions (2008, 2010, 2012, and 2014), with nine points from 15 matches, most notably including the winning point at Celtic Manor in 2010.

Padraig said: “I’m delighted to welcome Martin and Graeme as vice captains, both of whom I believe will bring experience, knowledge, and a great balance to the team room. They have both contributed winning points in Ryder Cup history, have been there and done it, and the other players look up to them. They both have that aura and responsibility in that what they say will have meaning.
