Euro Ryder side to have 3 captain’s picks

The Associated PressVIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) — The European team is reducing the number of captain’s picks from four to three for next year’s Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits.

Nine players will qualify automatically for the team via points earned in tournaments, starting with the BMW PGA Championship in September and ending at the same event 12 months later.

Padraig Harrington, Europe’s captain, had requested the change, saying that “in my experience, a player is more comfortable when he has qualified” as opposed to being a wild-card selection.
