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.
