2016 European Ryder Cup Team

Darren has announced his three wild cards to finalise his European Ryder Cup team taking on the USA at Hazeltine, Minnesota in four weeks time. 

They are: Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer and Thomas Pieters.

Clarke said: “In Lee and Martin, I've got two former World Number Ones and guys who bring a wealth of experience to the team. It's just not about playing, it's about the dynamic of the team room and that's involved in it.

“And then I've always been a huge Thomas Pieters fan from when I first witnessed how he hits the golf ball and how he plays. The manner which he's played golf these past few tournaments - fourth in the Olympics, to go to Czech and get beaten with a birdie on last green; and then last week to do what he did, to birdie the last three holes to win the tournament in the fashion that he did – that just impressed me so much that I found it impossible to leave him off the team.”

The nine automatic places were filled by Rory McIlroy, Danny Willett, Henrik Stenson, Chris Wood, Sergio Garcia, Rafa Cabrera-Bello, Justin Rose, Andy Sullivan and Matthew Fitzpatrick.

Team Europe is now complete and the matches begin in 31 days.
