He captained the victorious United States of America team at the 2017 Presidents Cup and was a non-playing vice-captain at last year's Ryder Cup.

There is something in the Irish psyche that has qualities that are not cultivated in most other nationalities - we are friendly, interested, winsome, charming and even manipulative ...but also incisive when the need arises.

The 47-year-old concedes he was previously naive to the true demands placed on team leaders.

Paul McGinley was successful five years ago in Gleneagles when his ability to finesse a squad left no less an adversary than Tom Watson looking like an amateur - a point that was emphasised by Phil Mickleson when he criticised how his captain had been so out his depth for such an ordeal. I strongly looked at the fact that we are going to a golf course that is at least European style.

Harrington has since experienced the biennial contest as part of the management team, serving as a vice-captain at the last three events ahead of taking full control at Whistling Straits in 2020.

That is one of the big advantages when it is your turn to host this mega-event and Darren Clarke faced the flawless storm of a Hazeltine course created to suit big-hitting Americans, as a team bristling from the memory of how they had collapsed against the Gleneagles challenge sought revenge at all costs. England's Lee Westwood would have been another contender, but he made it known publicly that he preferred to wait for the 2022 Ryder Cup in Rome. "We've had good performances from Europeans on that golf course for years".

So Harrington, as the next European captain, will head across the Atlantic knowing that the job of winning on foreign soil has not been achieved since Jose Maria Olazabal in 2012. He gives so much to the Ryder Cup and the Ryder Cup gives so much back to Rory that he can't get anywhere else.

"I'm putting it on the line - we know when you're a successful Ryder Cup captain it's great and a losing captain - it's his fault".

The good news is that Harrington believes some American players "aren't that happy" with the links-style course at Whistling Straits, where Martin Kaymer won the 2010 US PGA Championship.

Couples captained the U.S. to three straight Presidents Cup triumphs from 2009 to 2013 and was a vice for the next two, but in 2017 he stated he felt his opportunity to oversee a Ryder Cup had "passed by". It's not your friends who are coming in as your vice-captains.
