Ryder Cup: Clarke, McGinley and Bjorn named as vice-captains
European captain Jose Maria Olazabal has named Darren Clarke, Paul McGinley and Thomas Bjorn as three of his four vice-captains to face the United States in their defence of the Ryder Cup.
Olazabal will announce his fourth vice-captain, as well as his two wildcard picks, on 27 August.
"For me to have these guys by my side is fantastic," said Olazabal.
"All three are world-class golfers with tremendous experience of playing in the Ryder Cup which is absolutely invaluable."
The trio have played in 10 Ryder Cups between them, with nine wins to their credit.
"I am really pleased to be part of Jose Maria's team and I know that we can instil that relaxed atmosphere in the team room and help the captain get the best out of the players," said Clarke, who won the Open last year.
The Ryder Cup will take place at the Medinah Country Club, Chicago, from 28-30 September.
