Darren clarke dating again
Martin Kaymer, with one major already to his name, might have got his bad round out of the way yesterday, and is lurking on level par, alongside Anthony Kim, who has yet to deliver on his immense promise but has been quietly efficient all week. "Am I correct in understanding that the planets aligned to give us Sergio and Rory paired up on the last day of The Open? "What's the largest deficit ever made up to win an Open?And then there's Lucas Glover, George Coetzee, Anders Hansen, Adam Scott, Zach Johnson, Chad Campbell... I could have saved myself a lot of time and just posted that. If it's fewer than 9 strokes, get ready for a run at a new record. Along with Clarke's eagle effort on 7 on Friday, yes. Let me reiterate, because I'll probably never have the chance to write this again: Mc Ilroy double bogeys the hole to drop back to 5, but let's not take the wind out of our own sails here. This is the leaderboard as it stood at the end of the third round, and as it stands now.The US Open runner-up missed the cut at last week’s PGA Championship and will play at the PGA Tour Travelers Championship in Connecticut this week as he looks to move into one of five automatic places on the World Points List.Speaking to RTE Sport last week, Lowry said: “I was putting a lot of pressure on myself, looking at the Ryder Cup.(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images) " data-medium-file="https://usatthebiglead.files.wordpress.com/2017/02/gettyimages-105002749.jpg?w=300" data-large-file="https://usatthebiglead.files.wordpress.com/2017/02/gettyimages-105002749.jpg? w=1000"US golfer Jordan Spieth walks to the 18th green during his third round on day three of the 2016 British Open Golf Championship at Royal Troon in Scotland on July 16, 2016.
Troon has seen just about everything in terms of weather so far this week, with glorious sunshine on Thursday followed by wet and windy conditions on Friday and then more gusts on Saturday.
Ryder Cup captain Clarke will add three wildcard choices to the nine players who automatically make the team, which will be confirmed after the Made In Denmark event, which takes place from 25-28 August.
Other notable players who sit on the fringes of Ryder Cup qualification include captain Clarke’s stablemate and long-time friend Lee Westwood, 2012 Ryder Cup hero and two-time major winner Martin Kaymer, Soren Kjeldsen, Thorbjorn Olesen, Russell Knox and the in-form Tyrrell Hatton.
"But listen, I do really want to make the Ryder Cup, I really want to make that team." And Lowry tweeted today that he was hoping for a big month, starting at this week's Travelers, saying: "New week, new start, big month coming up now. Looking forward to my week in Hartford." Lowry is currently 15th on that world list with 106.51 points, while ninth-placed Matthew Fitzpatrick on 145.01 points occupies the fifth automatic place.
As things stand, Rory Mc Ilroy could be Ireland’s only representative on this year’s team as the Holywood man is the only Irish player in the nine automatic qualifying places.
