GLENEAGLES, SCOTLAND (AP) - European Ryder Cup captain Jose Maria Olazabal has chosen fellow Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez as his fourth and final vice-captain.

Jimenez joins Paul McGinley, Darren Clarke and Thomas Bjorn for Europe’s defense of its Ryder Cup title against the United States at the Medinah Country Club in Chicago from Sept. 28-30.

Jimenez was vice captain to Seve Ballesteros in 1997 and has competed in four Ryder Cups, including wins for Europe in 2004 and `10.

Olazabal will choose his two `wild-card’ players on Monday with England’s Ian Poulter and Belguim’s Nicolas Colsaerts the leading contenders.
