Keegan Bradley only has ‘admiration and respect’ for Zach Johnson a year after being snubbed for Team USA last year. The 38-year-old has revealed that it was Johnson who called to appoint him as the Ryder Cup captain for this year’s tournament.

Bradley was extremely disappointed to miss out on the Ryder Cup last year, having not been selected by then-captain Johnson. But this year he will lead the team and has already admitted that he is losing sleep pondering several decisions.

Having come full circle, Bradley insists that he has no hard feelings towards Johnson over his exclusion 12 months ago, and says he feels ‘honoured’ to have been called. That is despite the moment being captured in full on Netflix documentary Full Swing.

"I feel terrible for what he's had to go through, and I feel so honoured that he called," he said.

Bradley added: "I’ve only been a captain for two weeks, and I’m finding myself staring at the ceiling at 2am thinking about every situation. So, I have a different perspective now, and I have nothing but admiration and respect for Zach Johnson."

Tiger Woods was widely expected to become the Team USA captain for the tournament in Bethpage Black this week. However, the golf icon turned down the request due to his other commitments on the PGA Tour.

“With my new responsibilities to the Tour and time commitments involved, I felt like I would not be able to commit the time to Team USA and the players required as a captain," Woods said in a statement.

“That does not mean I wouldn’t want to captain a team in the future. If and when I feel it is the right time, I will put my hat in the ring for this committee to decide.”

World No 19 Bradley revealed he has spoken to Woods. He has also not ruled himself out of taking on a dual player-captain role. PGA of America President John Lindert has praised the appointment of Bradley.

“We had a couple of phone calls and discussed a variety of attributes that we wanted in our next captain,” Lindert explained.

“As you start to check off the boxes and you have a PGA Champion, someone who went to school here, familiar with the New York fanbase, very familiar with Bethpage Black, is the son of a PGA member, there are a lot of boxes that Keegan checked off. His enthusiasm for the Ryder Cup stood out above everything else.

“We just felt that was the 'ah ha' moment, when Keegan's name was mentioned. All hands went up and we were 100 per cent behind it.”
