Harrington picks Lowry for Ryder Cup and leaves out Justin Rose
Poulter and García are the other captain’s choices
Billy Horschel of USA wins PGA Championship
Justin Rose was the high-profile casualty as Padraig Harrington confirmed his European captain’s picks for this month’s Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits. As recently as April 2019 Rose was the world No 1; he now finds himself overlooked by Europe after Harrington turned to Ian Poulter, Sergio García and Shane Lowry.
“I’m really happy with my team,” Harrington said. “I am absolutely thrilled. My biggest difficulty will be that I have too many good players.I have a great team, probably the best team of ball strikers Europe has ever sent out in a Ryder Cup.” High praise, indeed.
