Hello everyone, 

The Ryder Cup Wildcard Picks 

So Darren Clarke has named Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer and Thomas Pieters as his three wildcard picks for the 41st Ryder Cup matches at Hazeltine National. With five rookies already on the team Clarke was keen to add experience in the form of Westwood and Kaymer with Pieters getting in as the form player thanks to a brilliant victory at the Made in Denmark tournament this week. 

I don't feel Westwood deserves a place on current form and Russell Knox who plays the USPGA Tour would have been my preferred choice, but what do you think, click here to let me know. 


Thought of the week 

Developing your match play mentality 

In the lead up to this year's Ryder Cup we thought we'd share three top tips to help you become a better match play golfer. Some of you hardened match play stalwarts probably have a few tricks up your sleeve. Nonetheless, here's our top three: 

Positive Body Language1. Control your body language 

Reacting badly to a poor shot will fill your opponent with confidence. You need to give the impression that you're in control, so take time between shots to collect yourself and focus on emitting positive body language. 

2. Expect to hole out 

You should expect to hole out - always. If you're expecting gimmes, this is something a canny opponent will pick up on. A positive attitude to holing out is the way forward. 

3. Consider the situation 

There's no point in playing the safe option if your opponent has stuck one in close. Likewise, if they've found water with their approach, for example, why go on the attack? Play for the middle of the green and a safe two-putt will normally do the job. 

These tips may sound simple, but in the heat of battle it's easy to forget what match play is all about.
