PGA Championship saw Martin Kaymer perform admirably.
This has also increased his chances of getting into the Ryder Cup team of Europe. He is a double winner from Germany, he is set to play in the US in the coming month.
There are nine team berths that are automatic as the rookies are occupying five of them currently. The Made in Denmark event will lead to the final qualifications being decided upon. The European captain would be Darren Clarke. He would be cheered when Kaymer forms a tie for the seventh position at Baltusrol. This happened last Sunday. Kaymer holds the 12th position in World points as well as from the European points table. He has been on the winning side every time he has appeared for the Ryder Cup. He even made the putt that caused the win in 2012 at Medinah.
With him in good form Clarke would have a good option for a wild card among the options he has for three picks as a captain when he picks the team for appearing at Hazeltine. The Ryder Cup is scheduled to be held in Minnesota. There have been other moves as well. Such as Justin Rose, who moved into the fifth position or Tyrrell Hatton, who moved up as he obtained the tenth position at the PGA Tournament. US captain would see the tally even up for the year as Jimmy Walker triumphed over Day for one point. Being the newest champion in a major US golf event has got Walker up to the fourth overall position.
There are several surprises that have come by this year and more are expected. With the Ryders Cup coming up in August and others in September, it remains to be seen what the fans can expect in terms of upsets and wins among the players.
