Who will lead the U.S. Ryder Cup team into Hazeltine in 2016? The answer to that most pressing question likely won't be answered for at least a few months.

The next U.S. captain won't be named until after the PGA of America's Ryder Cup Task Force has met a few times, new PGA President Derek Sprague said on the Golf Channel's "Morning Drive" program.

"We don't want to focus just on winning in 2016, although that's important," said Sprague, who co-chairs the task force with PGA of America CEO Pete Bevacqua. "We're looking to build a process that gives us several years of winning teams here for the United States."

NAPLES, Florida (Doug Ferguson/AP) — One of the messages Davis Love III wants to bring to the 11-member Ryder Cup Task Force is that it has gotten too big.

He said the amount of scheduled time at the Ryder Cup is about double what the Americans spend at the Presidents Cup, which is understandable because the Ryder Cup gets about double the interest.

What really concerns him is the size of the team party.

BELEK, Turkey (AP) — John Daly says Phil Mickelson or Tiger Woods should captain the United States at the next Ryder Cup, and didn't believe a task force would resolve America's losing streak.

Following Europe's third straight win at Gleneagles in September, the PGA of America chose a task force of 11 people, including Mickelson and Woods, to try to find answers to ending two decades of European dominance. A timetable or agenda wasn't announced, but picking the next captain, usually announced at the AGM this month, was put off to next year.
