Kuala Lumpur, September 5: Seven members of Team Europe’s EurAsia Cup squad will form part of the European Ryder Cup team which will face the United States at Gleneagles, Scotland from September 26-28.
French star Victor Dubuisson, Welshman Jamie Donaldson, Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland and Thomas Bjorn of Denmark all played their way into Paul McGinley’s squad while Scotsman Stephen Gallacher was named as one of the three captain’s picks.
Flamboyant Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez, who captained Team Europe in the memorable draw with Asia at the EurAsia Cup, was selected to serve as one of McGinley’s five vice-captains. Des Smyth, who was Jimenez's vice-captain at the EurAsia Cup, will also serve as vice-captain in the Ryder Cup.
Jimenez is amongst several candidates primed to be a future European Ryder Cup captain.
Modelled after the Ryder Cup, Jimenez led his team to a 10-10 draw with Team Asia, who was captained by Thongchai Jaidee, after three days of intense battle at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club, Gardens Course in March.
Donaldson secured 2 ½  points at the EurAsia Cup while McDowell and Gallacher contributed 2 points and 1 ½ points respectively. Bjorn and Dubuisson both contributed one point each in the titanic duel against Team Asia.
