As many as 34 Europeans still have the dream of playing in The Ryder Cup alive as they head into the final major of the year the US PGA Championship at Kiawah Island as the qualification is coming to the end.
The top ten players who will qualify automatically have remained the same after last week’s WGC Bridgestone Invitational, but they are just in a slightly different order.
Rory McIlroy extended his lead at the top of the European Points List – which will supply the first five players of the European Team and Captain José María Olazábal. The other five will come from the World Points List.
So this really is a decisive week especially with so many points up for grabs, and could maybe could produce a European winner as I’m sure all the players are desperate to make the team and also impress the captain to maybe scrape in through a pick.
