Goydos Earns Asst Team Captain Spot for Ryder Cup

Goydos3_400x200Long Beach Golf Hall of Fame member Paul Goydos has been chosen as one of four assistant team captains for the 2010 United States Ryder Cup Team. Goydos will be joined by Davis Love III, Jeff Sluman and former captain Tom Lehman. The announcement was made by U.S. Team Captain Corey Pavin on February 3rd.

This year's Ryder Cup will take place at The Celtic Manor Resort's Twenty Ten Course in Wales on Oct. 1-3. The U.S. will try to retain the Cup after its last victory in 2008 at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky. This year's team will attempt to become the first American team to win in Europe since 1993.

Goydos was the first ever three-time Moore League Champion while at LB Wilson High School, before playing collegiately at Long Beach State.  In 1985, Goydos captured the Pacific Coast Intercollegiate at the former Serfas Country Club in Corona and was first team All-Pacific Coast Athletic Association as he finished in fifth place at the PCAA championship.  He was a five-time Club Champion at Rec Park, and was in the Inaugural Inductee Class for the Long Beach Golf Hall of Fame in 1996.

Goydos4_thumbAn 18-year veteran of the PGA Tour, Goydos won the 1996 Bay Hill Classic and 2007 Sony Open of Hawaii, and lost an epic playoff to Sergio Garcia in the 2008 Players Championship.

"It's a great honor," said Goydos in a Ryder Cup statement. "The Ryder Cup is the face of our game. I think it is the starting point of our game and gets the most people excited. This is an honor to serve your game."   Goydos said that his call to serve from Pavin "has got to be one of the highlights of my career."
