Ry­der Cup lost by de­fault due to wild­card hand­i­cap

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

Why did Paul Casey not play for Europe as a wild card in the Ry­der Cup? He’s earned the money, is ex­pe­ri­enced, had form, good record in the Ry­der Cup, came fourth at the Masters, what more is re­quired? OK so he might not be a Euro­pean Tour mem­ber, but if you have a wild card that should over­rule that, oth­er­wise you can­not pick your best team. I no­ticed the Amer­i­cans al­lowed them­selves 4 wild cards against our 3 Euro­pean choices. If a Cap­tain can­not pick his best team then there is fun­da­men­tally some­thing wrong. A pair­ing of the Masters win­ner and fourth would have been a top pair­ing by any stretch of the imag­i­na­tion. I would also say that Amer­ica won by de­fault if you can­not play your best play­ers. Casey should have been in the team. Geoff UAE Maelle Dubai
