The Ryder Cup

Captain's leadership journey

  • Share

In the run-up to the 2014 Ryder Cup, Europe’s captain Paul McGinley faces the challenging task of moulding 12 elite golfers – who usually compete against each other – into a high-performing team with a single objective: retaining the Ryder Cup. But the challenge extends beyond the players and vice-captains. There is a vast "team behind the team" including the caddies, the tailors of the players' uniforms, the greenkeepers, the chefs, the event planners and many others who make the Ryder Cup possible. In these videos, Paul explores how he is preparing to knit the team together, explains his approach to the captaincy and looks ahead to his personal leadership journey that will culminate at Gleneagles in September 2014.
