Commentary: Simon Jenkins’s article frames Paul McGinley’s successful European Ryder Cup captaincy in Mitch McCrimmon’s business management model. McGinley’s preparation for captaincy, execution of Europe’s ‘template’ and man management are neatly mapped onto McCrimmon’s definition of management. McCrimmon differentiates management from leadership and although not examined fully in Jenkins’s article, it is also informative to frame Tom Watson’s American Ryder Cup captaincy in McCrimmon’s leadership model.
