There are no more excuses from this point on: at the BMW Championship (4th to 7th September, Cherry Hills Country Club, Denver) the top golfers on the PGA TOUR will need to call on all of their exceptional talent if they want to secure one of only 30 tickets for next week’s FedExCup final.
US Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson has named his three wildcard picks for this year’s intercontinental showdown against Team Europe in Gleneagles, Scotland, (Sept 26-28). Keegan Bradley, Hunter Mahan and Webb Simpson will join the nine other Americans who qualified for the US team via the ranking list.
Paul McGinley, the Europe Ryder Cup captain, has named Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood and Stephen Gallacher as his three wildcard picks for the match against the United States at Gleneagles, Scotland (Sept 26-28).
South African Hennie Otto has added a second Italian Open title to the one he won back in 2008. Meanwhile, third place was not quite enough for Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher to qualify directly for the European Ryder Cup team.
DRIVEN BY PASSION.
