The last major championship of the golf gets underway. For some it is last major titles while for some of the US players the tour can be a direct entry to the Ryder cup team. As the Ryder cup team for US has been announced there is a spot for some players yet to be achieved and this tour will help the captain Watson to decide on the player those who will make it to the team representing US in the famous Ryder cup. Phil Mickelson is among the names those who are looking for the top 9 spots to qualify for the Ryder cup team. The US team captain Watson in a press conference announced that on September 2nd the he will be announcing 3 wild card names for his Ryder’s team. Players taking part in the PGA will have a greater say and thus only the trophy s not up for grabs for Mickelson.
He currently is well placed in the championship and a good next week will see him gain some good spots in the table and it can mean a direct entry to the Ryder cup. The biggest thing to note is that the Ryder cup point gets doubled during the PGA week. This brings in even a better opportunity for Mickelson as for every $1000 earned he will be gaining 2 points for the Ryder cup and it will increase his chances of making it to the team. After 36 holes he is on a tie for the 7th spot in the tour. A good next week will not only give Mickelson a chance to represent his team but it will give Watson a chance to use well his options of selecting the last 3 players for the Ryder cup tournament easily and freely.
