What Does a Captain Do?

There are some sports in which the team Captain's job is obvious, cricket being the first which comes to mind.

What does a national golf team Captain do? "Don't knock it in the hole, chaps. That's just what they will be expecting"?

If it's for the Ryder Cup I think the captain actually picks the team so he's really like a player-manager in football.

He used to go down with his ship unless his name happened to be Francesco Schettino

Hmmm. Several Greek skippers have earned themselves something of an undistinguished reputation for 'coordinating the rescue effort from the shore' too.
