New European Ryder Cup captain Padraig Harrington says Rory McIlroy should be judged by his actions, not his words, following his recent negative comments about the European Tour. Stricker has also been a vice captain at the last three Ryder Cups.
With memorabilia such as replica trophies and some of Harrington's equipment, it will become even more popular if he can bring home the coveted Ryder Cup trophy.
Bjorn was on the European Tour committee along with previous skippers, Darren Clarke and Paul McGinley, that selected Harrington as the next captain, with the 47-year-old becoming the obvious choice for the role after Lee Westwood took himself out of the running and hinted that he would welcome the job in 2022.
Having said that, I doubt if we'll see the course set up in the same way as it would be for a major. But I think that's a road you should not go down. "I'm really conscious that I have to find that edge and add to it". We've had some great captains and I've learnt from all of them.
"Having won three majors, I've done a lot in my own personal career, but I know taking on the Ryder Cup captaincy is a different thing and a different level".
Considered among the greatest to play the game, Woods got his first taste of Ryder Cup leadership by serving as a vice-captain to Davis Love III at Hazeltine in 2016 as a string of back issues blighted his illustrious career.
Harrington, who hoisted the trophy four times during an illustrious playing career, can only dream his men will unleash such heroics on the greens and fairways in America when he leads them into the fray.
Padraig Harrington was named European Ryder Cup captain on Tuesday
The victor of The Open in 2007 at Carnoustie, The Open in 2008 at Royal Birkdale and the 2008 PGA Championship at Oakland Hills, Harrington went 9-13-3 in six consecutive appearances for Europe from 1999 through 2010, playing on four winning teams.
"I know we are going to a new venue, it's an away match".
We take a look at five candidates who could captain Team USA's next bid for Ryder Cup glory.
Steve Stricker is expected to be named the Captain for the 2020 US side, and Harrington previously said thinks he will be a "nice" Captain, but says he is not to be underestimated.
"You don't get that day-in, day-out".
Harrington has been encouraged by what he said was the "unanimous" support of Europe's players.
"He has done three vice-captaincies and I think he's ready for this job. You just have to know the man behind the scenes".
