Olazabal adds Poulter and Colsaerts
BY Bruce Young | 27 Aug 2012
Ian Poulter and Nicolas Colsaerts have been named as Captain Jose Maria Olazabal’s picks to join the ten automatic qualifiers for this year’s European Ryder Cup side.
Both had been named as the likely inclusions although Padraig Harrington’s recent resurgence probably gave him an outside chance also.
Nicoles Colsaerts wil be the only rookie in the 12 man side, further strengthening the European team’s chances of retaining the title when they travel to Medinah Country Club near Chicago beginning on September 28th.
Poulter will play his fourth Ryder Cup having been on the winning side in 2004 and 2010.
USA Captain Davis Love will complete the US side when he names his four wildcard selections on September 4th.
