Bradley confessed his shock when he received the call to be captain around two and a half weeks ago. Woods was the favourite for the role, but Bradley was next in line – a position that left him feeling uneasy.

“I don’t think I’ll ever be more surprised of anything in my entire life,” he admitted. “I had no idea and it took a while for it to sink in. I wasn’t fully comfortable with some of the people that were passed over.

“I have a lot of respect for the people that’ve come before me and people that deserve to be in this position, so that was a heavy thought and moment.”

When questioned if he ever contemplated declining the role, Bradley responded: “No, but I definitely took a bit of time to think about it. I was really honoured, it was just such a shock that I needed a little bit of time to just figure out what happened. It took a couple of days for it to set in, really. But I was excited about it from the start.”

While Mickelson is not up for the vice-captain role, and no discussions regarding these positions have occurred, Bradley did announce his intention to adopt a younger approach. Last year, Zach Johnson chose Steve Stricker, Davis Love III, Jim Furyk, Fred Couples and Stewart Cink as his vice-captains.

“I would say I’m going to take a fresh look at my vice-captains,” Bradley stated. “They’re going to be a lot younger, closer to playing.”

The newly appointed captain also emphasized Woods’ continued influence and involvement, offering him the opportunity to contribute as much as he desires in the lead-up to next year’s Ryder Cup at Bethpage Black.
