Rory Mc Ilroy Darren ClarkeRory McIlroy is the latest player to back Darren Clarke as the next Ryder Cup captain for Europe.
McIlroy was among influential voices who threw support behind Paul McGinley when European Tour officials were choosing a captain for Gleneagles.
McIlroy said: “Obviously there have been a few names thrown about there, but I have said with a Ryder Cup being in America, I feel that Darren Clarke would be the perfect man to lead the team there, just because he has such a great reputation in the States.

Clarke and Miguel Angel Jimenez  have been mentioned as possible captains for 2016.
