ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - Paul McGinley appears to be the front-runner to become Europe's Ryder Cup captain for 2014 after Darren Clarke raised doubts about taking on the responsibility.

McGinley has received the endorsement of world No. 1 Rory McIlroy, who has tweeted his support for the 46-year-old Irishman.

McGinley has the credentials having been on three winning Ryder Cup sides and having served as vice captain for Europe in 2010 and for its improbable comeback win last year.

Clarke was the favorite until last week, when he raised concerns about the impact the captaincy would have on his career, which he feels is on the rebound after a difficult 2012.
