Europe Announce Francesco Molinari as a Vice-Captain in Rome

Italian vice captain will play on home soil

Francesco Molinari has been named as Europe's fifth and final vice-captain as they try to win back the Ryder Cup from the United States in Rome.

Molinari joins brother Edoardo, Jose Maria Olazabal, Nicolas Colsaerts and Thomas Bjorn as vice-captains.

"I started the year hoping to be there as a player, but it is still a great honour to be there as a vice-captain," said Molinari, who became the first Italian to win a major title when he triumphed at the 2018 Open Championship.
"I got a phone call from Luke asking if I was interested and obviously it was a clear answer from me. He is assembling a really good team of people.
"It's a Ryder Cup which is particularly close to my heart being played in Rome. I will do whatever I can to help Luke and the team and hopefully bring the trophy back to Europe."
