SHARE Ryder Cup Captains arrive at Medinah

After months and months of planning, team-building and networking, Ryder Cup captains Jose Maria Olazabal and Davis Love III arrived at Medinah Country Club Monday afternoon and prepared to welcome their players.

“It’s been a long two-year journey for us but it really has been a lot of fun,” Love said. “I can’t tell you how many moments I’ve had in the last week or two that it really hit me how much fun it is and how exciting it is and what an honor it is.”Olazabal traveled from London with three of his players, a light number since many of them are based in the United States. But players began arriving Monday, and they’ll be in place to begin interviews and practice rounds Tuesday.“This is a huge week for our game and for all of us,” Olazabal said. “I hope we will have a great time.”
