Olazabal won't play

GOLF: Europe captain Jose Maria Olazabal insists he will not be involved as a player at next year's Ryder Cup, but his counterpart Davis Love III is still holding out hope of earning a berth in the United States team.

Speaking at a press conference 12 months before the event begins at Medinah Country Club in Illinois, the two veterans confirmed they hold opposing views when it comes to the possibility of being involved both on and off the course.
