On Course Foundation has announced that former Ryder Cup player and captain Paul McGinley is to become an ambassador for the military charity as it continues its mission to support the recovery of wounded service personnel and veterans through golf.

While golf is predominantly an individual sport, McGinley is perhaps best known for his successful performances in team competitions, having won the World Cup for Ireland in 1997 alongside Padraig Harrington, playing in three winning Ryder Cups sides in 2002, 2004 and 2006, and crowning his Ryder Cup career by captaining the victorious GB&I team in the 2014 match at Gleneagles. 

Commenting on his ambassadorial role, McGinley said: “Serving in the military is about teamwork and I am delighted to be bringing my experiences in this area to help the Foundation as the beneficiaries look to recover from their life-changing injuries through learning and playing the sport of golf as a group activity before embarking on individual careers within the industry.”
