Westwood had called Harrington "the ideal candidate for the captaincy", while McIlroy had said "Padraig Harrington would be a great captain in the USA because of his playing record, which includes winning the USPGA, and because everyone over there likes him".
"He has done three vice-captaincies and I think he's ready for this job".
