FALDO SURPRISE – YOUR VIEW

Well, Nick Faldo, being Nick Faldo, has done the not unexpected. He has surprised most of us with his preference for Ian Poulter instead of Darren Clarke in making his wild card picks.
Clarke, who won his second European Tour event last week, and Casey, with a host of top 10 finishes in recent weeks, had looked almost certainties if selection was going to be based on form as Faldo had indicated it would be some time ago.
Carl Pettersson, who won two weeks ago on the US PGA Tour was another who could have come into the picture.
But no! It was Poulter, who missed the cut in Boston at the weekend after forfeiting the chance of playing his way into the team at the clashing Johnnie Walker Championship in Scotland and hasn’t done too much of note beside turning out in some snappy outfits since his second place at the US Open in June, who got the nod.
Only time will tell whether Faldo has done the right thing and in the meantime I’ve said my piece in my blog.
Whether you agree or disagree with Faldo, do let us know. Wed love to hear how the readers feel.

Cheers
