Darren Clarke expressed his delight at the Ryder Cup captaincy as he looked forward to leading Europe's bid for an unprecedented fourth successive victory.

Clarke will captain the side at Hazeltine in 2016, where his opposite number will be good friend Davis Love.

"The highest honour the European Tour can bestow on any of its members is the Ryder Cup captaincy, so imagine my sense of joy, pride when the call came through from Ryder Cup director Richard Hills inviting me to lead Europe into the 2016 match against the USA," Clarke said.
