The Ryder Cup Selection Process Needs An Overhaul

Paul Casey should be in the European Ryder Cup team.

He is one of the best players in the world (world number 9) and has shown that he is capable of handling the unique pressure of the big occasions.

He has committed most of his time to taking on the best in the world on the PGA Tour.  Pretty much the same could be said about Justin Rose.

However, neither player will be in the Ryder Cup squad this year, making way for players who have concentrated on playing in the less cash rich European Tour.

I understand why the European Tour want to protect their own tour.  However, the Ryder Cup captain should be able to pick the strongest possible squad to take on the American team.  That is simply not the case at the moment.  The system is badly in need of reform.
