Ryder Cup Captain Tom Watson just chose Raymond Floyd to be his Assistant Captain in the 2014 Ryder Cup. Floyd brings plenty of experience to the team, as he has played on eight Ryder Cups, was captain in 1989 and assistant captain in 2008. âIâm flattered obviously,â said Floyd, who lives at Old Palm, designed the golf course and is Honorary Club Chairman. âItâs going to be a thrill for me to have his back. I think itâll be a lot of fun.â As Assistant Captain, Floyd will provide player information to help Watson determine his picks and create a comfortable winning environment for the players. âRaymond brings experience and respect from the players,â says Watson. âThe players know heâs been there and been successful. He wants to win, and heâll be there for the players.â The 2014 Ryder Cup will be played at Scotlandâs legendary Gleneagles, September 23-23.
