The German golfer Martin Kaymer has been selected the 10th member of the Ryder Cup team of Europe. They will be competing against the United States next month at the Ryder Cup. Kaymer’s selection was doubtful as Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium was in the race as he fought for the first two spots in the Johnnie Walker Championship.
The skipper of European golf team, Jose Maria Olazabal, would have no choice but select Colsaerts if he had won the Johnnie Walker Championship. Because then he would have gone past Martin Kaymer according to the world ranking points. But at the end Colsaerts lost it to Peter Lawrie and Kaymer is now selected as the 10th member of the tem. Colsaerts still has a chance to make it to the team with the two wild card entries to be declared soon by Olzabal.
Kaymer did not participate in the Johnnie Walker Championship and it made his place a bit doubtful. However, thanks to Colsaerts defeat, now he will be taking part at the Ryder Cup for the 2nd time. Kaymer made his debut at the Ryder Cup in 2010 at Celtic Manor. Martin Kaymer is spotted saying that he is delighted to get the opportunity to make it to the Ryder Cup.
Kaymer was not in the best of forms during the last two major tournaments and he knows it very well. He himself told that it has been a tough time for him. But then he has improved a lot under the guidance of his coach, Gunther Kessler, since he took part in the USPGA.
He then added that he is quite confident of putting up a good show at the Ryder Cup.
He also told that it is a pleasure for him to be a part of Olazabal’s team and he is focusing on winning the championship for his team.
