The USA have reached for their big gun in an attempt to wrestle back the Ryder Cup and Tom Watson is 11/10 with William Hill to be the successful captain in two years.

After their spectacular victory earlier this year, Europe are 10/11 to triumph once again in 2014 at Gleneagles.

Darren Clarke is the 8/13 favourtie with Hills to lead the side whilst Paul McGinley is 6/4 and Colin Montgomerie 5/1.

"The 'Miracle in Medinah' obviously hurt and by choosing Tom Watson, team USA have gone for the biggest gun in their arsenal," said spokesman Rupert Adams.

"But the odds suggest whomever is in charge Europe will successfully retain the cup."
