LONDON: Former Open and Masters champion Sandy Lyle said on Monday he would like to replace Bernhard Langer as Europe's Ryder Cup captain for the 2006 edition.
The 46-year-old told Scotland Today that he should be one of the names to be considered to succeed Langer, who is widely expected to stand down after guiding Europe to a record 18 1/2 - 9 1/2 victory over the United States earlier this month.
"There are a lot of European players who could be Ryder Cup captains but my name could be in the tumbler to be drawn out," said Lyle, who played in five Ryder Cups.
"I don't know how it is decided – it is all down to the committee and what they want from their captain," added Lyle, whose overall record in the Ryder Cup was five wins, lost eight and halved three.
