Kaymer runs Ryder Cup risk

Martin Kaymer is certainly confident that his Ryder Cup place is secured having decided not to feature in the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles this week.

The German is currently in the automatic places to qualify for the European team at the upcoming event at Medinah Country Club next month but could be overtaken, were one of his counterparts to enjoy a successful tournament in Perthshire this week.

Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts is one of the contenders to make a last gaps run for a Ryder Cup spot but he would have to win or finish as the runner-up for the Johnnie Walker Championship to push Kaymer out of
the running.

The German has struggled for form in recent years but will certainly have something to offer captain Jose Mari Olazabal when they team head across the Atlantic to Illinois (follow the link for more golf betting tips ahead of the Ryder Cup).

Kaymer’s agent Johan Elliot is confident his client is making the right decision by sticking to his schedule ahead of the Ryder Cup, which will see Europe hope to retain the title after their triumph at Celtic Manor two years ago.

He said: "Martin's been in a bit of a slump as we all know, but he is comfortable with where he is heading and he wants to be at the Ryder Cup. There's no doubt about that.

"He decided to stick to his schedule rather than play this week and he's spoken to Jose Maria about it.

"He's a smart man and he knows that Martin knows what he needs to do.”
