Clarke odds on to follow in McGinley's footsteps

It looks all but certain that the next European Ryder Cup captain will hail from the Emerald Isle as Darren Clarke is now just 1/4 to lead the current holders into Hazeltine in 2016.

After getting plenty of vocal support this week Clarke looks home and hosed and already Boylesports make are 10/11 to win the 2016 Ryder Cup on American soil. The betting to be the next USA captain is a lot more wide open, however.

After making plenty of headlines in his absence last Sunday, 2008 skipper Paul Azinger is now the 9/4 favourite with Boylesports, but will he return to the now poisoned chalice?

Fred Couples has captained the Presidents Cup team and may be worth a bet at 9/2.
