PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Davis Love III, a six-time Ryder Cup veteran as a player, was selected to be the captain of the United States team at the 2012 Ryder Cup.

Love will lead the American team as it tries to win back the Ryder Cup against European golfers in September 2012 at the Medinah Country Club near Chicago. Jose Maria Olazabal will be the European captain.

Love, 46, was 9-12-5 in Ryder Cup play and was an assistant captain to Corey Pavin for the 2010 Ryder Cup.

"From his Ryder Cup rookie year in 1993 to today, Davis has performed so well under pressure and now brings that experience to lead our next United States team and win back the Ryder Cup," PGA of America President Allen Wronowski said in a statement.
