Davis Love III tabbed as next U.S. Ryder Cup captain

Davis Love III is the new United States Ryder Cup captain.

The former PGA Championship winner was selected to captain the 2012 edition, which is slated for Medinah (Ill.) Country Club.

Love's illustrious career includes 20 PGA Tour victories and several Ryder Cup appearances - the last coming in 2004.

The decision to pick Love comes on the heels of Europe choosing Jose Maria Olazabal as its captain.

Olazabal's chronic back injuries has sidelined the former two-time Masters champ in recent years, but the Spanish legend will take charge of a European side littered with talent.

That talent was on display this past fall when the Europeans regained the Ryder Cup over the Americans at Celtic Manor in Wales.

Now that the news is out on the captains, we'll just have to wait 18 months before the first shot is hit in the next Ryder Cup and watch to see who qualifies for each team.
