European Ryder Cup Team Update

Following on from the previous article about the battle for Nick Faldo's wildcards, none of the front runners did themselves any favours yesterday. While the TPC Boston course seems to be a bit of a duck shoot with most players shooting well into the 60s (Tim Clark even had a great chance for a 59 yesterday), both Poulter and Casey lumbered to rounds in the 70s and both missed the cut. Poulter lashed out at the media for the unwelcome pressure they heaped upon him, but one wonders why he read the articles and took questions on the matter if it had such a negative effect on him.

On the other side of the pond, a similarly tetchy Monty had a hardly encouraging 76 to topple down the leaderboard while Darren Clarke continued to thread water with another even par 73. All of this does not make the decision any easier for poor old Nick!
