Thomas Bjorn set to be named Europe's 2018 

Ryder Cup captain

Sweden's Thomas Bjorn is expected to be named today as Europe's team captain for the 2018 Ryder Cup match.

Bjorn played on three winning Ryder Cup teams, and now he will be the man to lead the European team in 2018.

Golf Channel insider Tim Rosaforte confirms that Bjorn will be named the captain today. He has served as an assistant captain four times (2004, 2010, 2012, 2016) and played on winning teams in 1997, 2002 and 2014.

Bjorn won 15 times on the European Tour and compiled a 3-4-2 record in the Ryder Cup. He was an assistant captain on Darren Clarke's team in October when Europe lost to the U.S. for the first time in eight years. It was the only time Bjorn had been part of a losing team either as a player or assistant captain.

The 2018 Ryder Cup match will be held at Le Golf National outside Paris.
