McGinley gets his Ryder Cup ride

Club Car presented Paul McGinley with his own European Team Captain’s Car at this year’s BMW PGA Championship, ahead of The 2014 Ryder Cup held at Gleneagles, Scotland, this September. The Irishman has played in three victorious Ryder Cup teams (2002, 2004 and 2006) and as vice-captain helped captains Colin Montgomerie and José María Olazábal, in 2010 and 2012 respectively, keep track of their teams’ winning performances to make history on both sides of the Atlantic.

As The Ryder Cup returns to Scotland for the second time in its history, Club Car is gearing up to supply over 300 passenger and utility vehicles to help drive one of the world’s largest sporting events. Kevin Hart Club Car’s, sales director Golf for the EMEIA region commented, “Our long-standing association with The European Tour and The Ryder Cup has allowed us to understand what is essential to the operation and smooth running of golf’s most prestigious team event. Enabling match officials, camera crews, as well as captains and vice captains to cover the grounds and keep up with play is a huge logistical operation. However, our experience at servicing big international events means The European Tour can put its trust in Club Car for the on-course logistics of the ultimate tournament in matchplay golf, and watch the drama, camaraderie and incredible sportsmanship unfold.”
