" I am absolutely Thrilled and Honored to be chosen as the 2011 Solheim Cup Captain. The Solheim Cup has been a huge part of my career over the past 20 years as a player, and now it will be even more exciting as I prepare over the next several months for what will promise to be another great Solheim Cup competition in Ireland! I couldn't be more proud to represent the United States as their Captain and with this opportunity to lead our US Players over the pond to Killeen Castle to retain the cup."
" This year marks 20 years since the first Solheim Cup and I have loved every minute of the competition on and off the course, either as a player, commentator, or supporter! Being the 2011 Captain marks a new dimension for me and I look forward to the experience with as much motivation, zest, and excitement as I did as a player."
