A date for your diary
With the Olympic golf behind us, our attention now turns to the Ryder Cup. Before that first tee shot on September 30, however, come the wild card selections on August 30. This is when Darren Clarke will name his three players who will join those who have already qualified (see below).
So, how is Team Europe shaping up? The following names are guaranteed their spot on the plane to Minnesota:
Rory McIlroy, Danny Willett, Henrik Stenson, Chris Wood, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose, Rafael Cabrera-Bello, Andy Sullivan and Matt Fitzpatrick.
Yes, some big names are set to miss out! However, the favourites for the wild card spots are Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer and Russell Knox. You have to say, it's a strong side given the likes of Graeme McDowell, Luke Donald and Shane Lowry are looking like missing out… maybe.
As the saying goes, 'One man's loss is another man's gain'. Fitzpatrick qualified at the weekend and his reaction was superb - well done that man.
Now I can't promise you'll be on the Ryder Cup team in two years but if you'd like to make some changes to help you move from a golfer who sits at home and thinks...'if only' to a golfer that enjoys their game more and has a chance to compete, click here to request a lesson or lesson package today.
