Lee Westwood from England said he would be "crazy" to captain Europe during the 2022 Ryder Cup, which will be held in Rome.
The 45-year-old has played in 10 editions of the biennial event against the United States and has won a European record seven times.
Westwood was one of five subordinates to Thomas Bjorn in Europe & # 39; s victory of 17½-11½ on the US in September in September.
"I would like to be captain in Italy, other people will want to do it, but I will take my hat," he told BBC Sport.
Last year Westwood decided to fight for the captain of 2020, and Padraig Harrington chose the role at Whistling Straits.
The Irishman was confirmed last week as European skipper for the next race in Wisconsin and, speaking on The Cut wave podcast, Westwood repeated his support for deep thinker & # 39; Harrington.
Westwood, who is fifth on the European list of the most Ryder Cup points won with 23 and last played in the 2016 event, said in October 2018 that he would like want to be playing "in Harrington & # 39; s 2020 team.
He supported that by winning the Nedbank Challenge in November in South Africa – his first victory in the European Tour in four years – and is week in Abu Dhabi when he starts his 26th year on the circuit
