    Not sure Couples has the personality. Love either. I wouldn't have a problem with Azinger again.

    I'm guessing we'll never see Fuzzy Zoeller captain the team, so I'd have no qualms with Azinger getting an encore. Pavin wouldn't be bad, either.

    Keep 'Zinger until he loses.

    There are other good options as well.

    One thing to consider is that the next Cup will be across the pond, so the crowds will be different and so will the emotions of the players.

    Hell, why not Zinger for President!

    Has O'Meara ever done it? Maybe Rocco.

    O'Meara has not been a captain. But wasn't he one of the players who griped about playing for free?

    I think Arnold Palmer is the only captain to repeat. My guess is Love. As for the Euros, who else but Monty?

    Damnit, cue up the bi-annual story we'll do about Larry Nelson complaining he never gets a chance to be captain.

    We are so damn predictable...

    There was speculation O'Meara might get it instead of Lehman since he's got Irish ties and it might keep Tiger happy. I thought about Funk but he hasn't won nearly enough (not to mention a major) to get the job. Same with Rocco.

    Johnny Miller said that the tradition is to name a former winner of the PGA Championship, which will probably point to DLIII. I can't wait until John Daly gets to be captain. That will be a hoot.
    Here's my question Azinger said he's put his heart and soul into the RC for two years (I know he doesn't have much else going on golf-wise), but what exactly does an RC captain do for the two years leading up. I mean besides pick out the shirts, hats and slacks, arrange for lodging and food, set up practice sessions and such what do you do?
    That said, Azinger's picks were brilliant. Hell of job.

    Nicklaus repeated in the mid-80s. He lost at Muirfield Village in 87 and I thought he was the captain in 83.
