Ryder Cup Captain on the menu for PGA Lunch


European team captain for the 2020 Ryder Cup in America Padraig Harrington has been announced as the guest of honour for this year’s PGA Lunch in London.

The annual event returns to London’s Grosvenor House on December 20. Three-time Major winner Harrington will be a popular guest having established himself as one of the most likeable and successful golfers in the world.

The Irishman has played in no fewer than six Ryder Cups and has been on the winning team on four occasions having played a total of 25 matches.

A vice-captain in 2014, 2016 and more recently in France last year, Harrington now has the honour of leading the European team at the 2020 Ryder Cup in Whistling Straits, where Europe will be looking to claim their first victory in America since 2012.

Harrington will be joined by stand-up comedian Jimmy McGhie, while BBC Radio Five Live journalist and golf hack Iain Carter is the host for the afternoon.
