Paul McGinley to start Ryder Cup qualification

August 29, 2013

Europe captain Paul McGinley will take the first shot in the 2014 Ryder Cup qualifying process when he goes out in the opening group in the Wales Open at Celtic Manor on Thursday.

It will be the first time that a current captain of the European team has the honor of teeing up first in the opening qualifying tournament for the biennial match against the United States.

McGinley says ''there are a lot of milestones along the way on the Ryder Cup captain's journey, and the start of qualifying is certainly a big milestone.''

The Irishman has ruled himself out of appearing as a player in the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in Scotland. However, he says ''I am extremely proud to set the example for my prospective team members.''
