Olazabal chooses Jimenez as Ryder Cup vice captain

European Ryder Cup captain Jose Maria Olazabal has chosen fellow Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez as his fourth and final vice-captain.
Jimenez joins Paul McGinley, Darren Clarke and Thomas Bjorn for Europe's defense of its Ryder Cup title against the United States at the Medinah Country Club in Chicago from Sept. 28-30.
Olazabal says "I now have four world class golfers as my vice captains," adding that "they all have tremendous experience of playing in the Ryder Cup which is absolutely invaluable."
Jimenez was vice captain to Seve Ballesteros in 1997 and has competed in four Ryder Cups, including wins for Europe in 2004 and `10.
Olazabal is set to name his two `wildcard' choices on Monday with England's Ian Poulter and Belguim's Nicolas Colsaerts the leading contenders.
