Hal Sutton says change will help Europeans

Hal Sutton fears Europe’s change in selection policy will make the United States’ task of winning back the Ryder Cup even harder.

Until now, Europe has selected the top 10 players on the European Tour money list, and added two wildcards to make up its 12-man line-up, a system that meant players who base themselves on other tours could be ineligible for selection.

But last week it was announced that from next year Europe will choose its players in three ways, with the top five on the money list, the leading five players on the world rankings, and two wildcards.

And it is a new system that Sutton told AP has him worried, because he believes it will only make the Europeans even stronger.

"I'm sure it's going to make their team even better," said Sutton. "It's going to be easier to play our tour and still gather points to make their team. It might hurt their tour just a little bit. But I'm sure it's a positive move for them overall."
