London - Ryder Cup-winning captain Jose Maria Olazabal on Tuesday said that he would not lead Europe into the next edition in 2014, after steering the team to a famous against-the-odds victory last weekend.
The Spaniard said the tension made it "torture" skippering the side that came back from 10-6 down to pull off an astonishing win by 14 1/2 points to 13 1/2.
"I won't do it again," he told a press conference at London's Heathrow Airport. "I can assure you that's going to be a no, period. (Being captain) is difficult, in a way it's torture.
"It's really tough on your nerves but that's the beauty of the Ryder Cup. It's a huge adrenalin flow and that's what we live for - the pressure, the tension the adrenalin flow makes us feel alive."
