Mark James named as Ryder Cup assistant

Mark James is back on the Ryder Cup team, this time as Sam Torrance's assistant.

James, who left as Ryder Cup captain after Europe's one-point defeat by the Americans last year, was chosen Wednesday by the Scotsman as his second assistant for next year's match against the Americans.

Ian Woosnam was picked earlier as Torrance's first assistant.

"I'm hoping that I'll make the team in another way -- as a player," said James, a member of seven European teams as a player before his elevation to the captaincy last year.
