According to the UK's Daily Record, Colin Montgomerie wants members of the Tournament Player's Committee to ignore their personal opinions and affiliations with the two candidates and select the next European Ryder Cup captain fairly.
Paul McGinley and Darren Clarke, both candidates for the role, are part of the 15 member committee that will select Jose Maria Olazabal's replacement.
Monty's concerns stem from the fact that two other members of the committee — David Howell and Richard Finch — are represented by the same management company — ISM — as Clarke, according to the report.
“Both Paul and Darren would be suitable. Let’s hope that when the vote is taken there are those in the room voting for a player and not a fellow management client."
“It should all be about who is the best man for the job.”
The committee is slated to make a decision in January.
