VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) European captain Padraig Harrington has selected Robert Karlsson as his first vice captain for the 2020 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits.
Karlsson performed the same role under Thomas Bjorn when the European team regained the trophy at Le Golf National in Paris last year.
The 50-year-old Karlsson made two appearances in the Ryder Cup as a player, helping Europe to a record-tying win at The K Club in 2006 and playing in the defeat at Valhalla two years later.
