Padraig Harrington, the captain of the European Ryder Cup team, does not give up. For him, the Ryder Cup 2020 must be disputed at the end of September (25-27) in Whistling Straits (Wisconsin). And this despite the Covid-19 pandemic which has stopped all golfing for several weeks now. As he pointed out this Tuesday at Daily Mail, the Irishman would be favorable to a selection of twelve choices (picks in English), which would settle the thorny case of the qualifications by points via the world classification but also via the tournaments on the European Circuit. “It would not be a problem for me if I had to choose twelve golfers without qualification,” said Harrington. In the current selection system, the Irishman with three major successes has the possibility of choosing three players in addition to the nine who will have qualified via the two point rankings, European and world. Steve Stricker, his American counterpart, has the freedom to choose four players. “Maybe we should be thinking about more choices,” says Harrington. “It could be easier. I don’t rule out any alternatives. Including choosing twelve players …” Given the stop of the PGA Tour and the European Tour and the total vagueness as to a resumption of competition, the qualification system as we know it is no longer entirely reliable. Hence the call of some European golfers, such as Tommy Fleetwood or Graeme McDowell, to postpone the competition to 2021. For a more equitable qualification process. Case to follow!
