America expected to name Toms as Ryder Cup captain on Thursday
THE United States will unveil their next Ryder Cup captain, possibly David Toms, on Thursday.
Toms was not one of Love's assistants at Medinah, but that may be a point in his favour given the fact that the United States threw away a 10-4 lead.
"It's one of the highest honours in golf," the 45-year-old Toms said when asked about the position. "I would hope at some point in time I would get that opportunity.
"It's the best event in golf and to be able to captain a US team and somehow get a victory, that would certainly be one of the highlights of my career - if not the highlight."
Toms lost only one of his five games on his Ryder Cup debut at The Belfry in 2002, but scored only one point two years later and did not win a game in Ireland in 2006.
