Paul McGinley has insisted that he is fully aware he will have to make some tough decisions as captain of the European Ryder Cup team.
The Irishman has been given the task of leading a side to retain the trophy following Europe's triumph at Medinah last year and he claims that he'll be able to manage the problems that come his way.
"I understand that along the journey that all captains take, some tough decisions have to be made," McGinley said.
"Some have been made already and some will be made going forward. I'm prepared for that and I'm prepared for the fact that not everybody is going to agree with my decisions.
"I've been very fortunate, I've been involved in five of the last six Ryder Cups, and we won all five that I was involved in (three as a player, two as vice-captain). I've seen the template, I've seen what works and I just want to make that template better and roll it out again."
McGinley won the Ryder Cup three times as a player.
