It will be the first time that a current captain of the European team has the honor of teeing up first in the opening qualifying tournament for the biennial match against the United States.

McGinley says ``there are a lot of milestones along the way on the Ryder Cup captain's journey, and the start of qualifying is certainly a big milestone.''

The Irishman has ruled himself out of appearing as a player in the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in Scotland. However, he says ``I am extremely proud to set the example for my prospective team members.''
