Rory McIlroy has tipped Padraig Harrington to be the captain for Europe's Ryder Cup title defence in the United States in 2020.
Victorious skipper Thomas Bjorn is yet to make a decision on his future and Harrington, a vice-captain this year, could be in the running for the role.
Harrington has won the Ryder Cup four times as a player and has experience of tasting victory in America having won the 2008 US PGA Championship, which has prompted McIlroy to back the Irishman.
"I've always thought Padraig would be a good captain in the United States," McIlroy told Sky Sports. "He's won a lot of golf tournaments over there, he's won a PGA Championship, so we'll see.
"I think the continuity in the European camp - having all these vice-captains this year and preparing for captaincy down the road - has been a huge foundation of why we've been so good.
"No matter who the captain is next time, they'll be ready and I'm sure they will do a great job."
