Nelson wanted Ryder Cup job



Larry Nelson thinks it was a great idea for the PGA of America to pick someone older to be Ryder Cup captain. He's just disappointed it wasn't him.

Nelson, a three-time major champion with a 9-3-1 record in three Ryder Cup appearances, said on Wednesday on Golf Channel's "Morning Drive" show that no one from the PGA of America contacted him about being captain.

Golf Digest reported on its website that the PGA of America planned to pick Tom Watson. It will be the second time the 63-year-old Watson will be a Ryder Cup captain.

Watson is to be introduced as captain on Thursday in New York.

Nelson says he doesn't know how the PGA reached its decision but "you just have to honour that."
