Faldo pulls out of 2004 Captaincy race

Nick Faldo will not be a candidate to captain Europe's defense of the Ryder Cup in 2004.
Faldo, who has been on the team a record 11 times, said Thursday he believes Sam Torrance should continue as captain at Oakland Hills in two years even though Torrance has expressed a reluctance to do so.

"He did a fantastic job and didn't put a foot wrong," Faldo said. "He spoke well, came up with great partnerships and created a great team spirit. Going on that performance, I'd definitely vote for him for the next one."

Faldo, who played 11 straight times from 1977-1987, also wants to try to make the team again.

"I think I'll try and give it one more go," Faldo said. "They inspired me. I thought it would be great to get my teeth into something that will motivate me."
