Graeme McDowell 'Gutted' To Miss Euro Ryder Cup Team

Trending: Westwood, Kaymer, Pieters Tapped for Ryder Cup
European Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke has selected two veterans and a rookie in Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer and Thomas Pieters, rounding out the 2016 Ryder Cup squad.

For the first time in a decade, Graeme McDowell will not represent Team Europe at the Ryder Cup next month.

He’s quite disappointed about it. McDowell tweeted he was "gutted" that he won’t be taking part. He had been involved in the past four Ryder Cups, in which the Europeans won the most recent three. Instead, Darren Clarke’s captain’s picks landed with Thomas Pieters, Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer.

He’s right. Despite winning the OHL Classic last fall, McDowell has missed the cut eight times on the PGA Tour since the beginning of March. McDowell’s lackluster season left him in 19th place on the World Points list.


Graeme McDowell has been a member of the last four European Ryder Cup teams.
