The United States pulled a stunning upset in the biennial matches last September. From AP-
Corey Pavin has been selected the next U.S. captain for the Ryder Cup, leading a team in 2010 that will try to successfully defend the cup for the first time since 1993.
Pavin is a former U.S. Open champion with 15 victories on the PGA Tour. He played in three Ryder Cups and had an 8-5-0 record.
The 49-year-old Pavin takes over for Paul Azinger, who helped the U.S. end a decade of European dominance at the Ryder Cup with a 16Â½-11Â½ victory in September at Valhalla.
The U.S has not had a captain consecutive Ryder Cups since Ben Hogan in the 1940s.
Many people expected 2008 Captain Paul Azinger to return. Who wins the Ryder Cup comes down to which team makes the putts and other shots needed for a victory. I think the position of team captain is highly overrated.
