It’s not over until it’s over. Now the time has finally come to find out who has automatically qualified for the European Ryder Cup team, and it took the full 72 holes of the BMW PGA Championship to sort it out.
These are the nine players who qualified for the Squad of European captain Padraig Harrington have qualified via the European points list (based on the Race to Dubai points collected at events sanctioned by the European Tour) and the world points list (based on the official golf world rankings).Notable players on the outside include Shane Lowry, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia and Ian Poulter. Garcia (DNP) and Poulter (MC) are almost certain that they have one of Harrington’s three captain’s tips.
Knowing this, Lowry, Rose, Wiesberger and Westwood played for both an automatic seat and consideration for it final selection.
Wiesberger only managed a straight par 72 at Wentworth on Sunday, but his draw for 20th place was enough to get him to the finish line. Rose had to win to get in and finish Birdie Eagles, but it wasn’t enough. He shot 65 and finished sixth.
« Today I never, never let go and just had to take a deep breath with every shot. That means being able to play for a Ryder Cup team, ”said Wiesberger, who will make his cup debut. « I mean, I don’t think I need to mention, it has been a lifelong goal for me to be part of a European team and I’m very proud to have done just enough to get on that team and into the Whistling Straits to go. » a couple of weeks. «
The ultimate fight was between Lowry and Westwood, with Westwood finishing his final round while Lowry starting his. Westwood slipped to a 77, which meant Lowry needed no worse than eighth place on his own, to defeat him.
It shouldn’t be for the Irishman. After a few early birdies, Lowry bogeyed 14th and doubled the 15th to drop to 10 under par and take 24th place. He closed in 71 and tied for 17 ..
« It’s disappointing not to be on the team automatically, but of course I hope they pick me, » said Lowry. « I usually don’t talk about myself, but I think « I’ve played the golf well enough and I think I deserve to be in this cup, but that’s because of them. »
Only five of the nine automatic courses were on before the start of this week’s flagship event European Tour firm, but Fitzpatrick and Hatton were pretty sure, Westwood was also in good shape before he played badly and got a shock from Lowry. This will mark the Englishman’s 11th Ryder Cup appearance and tie him most closely to Nick Faldo for Team Europe.
Harrington will make his three captain tips on Sunday evening to round off his team, which is the Ryder Cup in Whistling Straits will defend September 24-26 after a year-long delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
