If his win at the Memorial didn't earn him a spot on the United States Ryder Cup team, Keny Perry's victory at last weekend's Buick Open certainly did.
Long known as one of the best ballstrikers on the PGA Tour, Perry is now ranked second in scoring average (69.56) and has the second-longest consecutive cut streak (17) behind Tiger Woods (29).
After winning at Memorial Perry skipped the U.S. Open, and you won't see him at the British Open in two weeks either. Perry set his schedule up at the beginning of the year with the Ryder Cup, and not majors, foremost in his mind. When asked if he might now head to Royal Birkdale, since he is seemingly sure to make the Ryder Cup team, he said, "I've already committed to [Milwaukee]. That just wouldn't look good, in my opinion, to be committed and then just stone them to go play in the British Open; that ain't right. I'm not going to do that. I'm going to stand my word. I committed to them the first of the year and that's where I'm going."
