The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

SOME fresh-faced ris­ing stars are re­plac­ing fa­mil­iar Ry­der Cup stal­warts, giv­ing Europe a fight­ing chance of win­ning an un­prece­dented fourth con­sec­u­tive Ry­der Cup ti­tle over the United States.

This year’s Euro­pean squad is a vastly dif­fer­ent out­fit than the teams that beat the Amer­i­cans in six of the last seven Ry­der Cups.

Euro­pean fix­tures like Eng­land’s Ian Poul­ter and Luke Don­ald and Ir­ish­man Padraig Har­ring­ton have given way at Hazel­tine to the likes of Bel­gian Thomas Pi­eters, Spain’s Rafa Cabr­era Bello and Eng­land’s Chris Wood and Danny Wil­lett.

Euro­pean cap­tain Dar­ren Clarke said yes­ter­day he has full con­fi­dence in his rook­ies.
