The Swiss Alps provide a spectacular backdrop this week as the European Tour travels to Crans Montana in Switzerland for the Omega European Masters. European Tour Weekly will be at the Seve Ballesteros-designed Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club with the latest thoughts from the players on the eve of the tournament.
Last year Denmark’s Thomas Bjorn captured a second Omega European Masters title when he defeated overnight leader Craig Lee at the first extra playoff hole. ETW speaks to Thomas, who will be making his third Ryder Cup appearance as a player at Gleneagles, ahead of his defence.
Our review this week is from the 71st Open d’Italia presented by Damiani and ETW will bring you highlights of the action from Circolo Golf Torino. With the nine automatic qualifying spots for the European Ryder Cup team finalised in Italy, Captain Paul McGinley will be revealing the three wild card choices who will complete the team defending the trophy at the end of September. Our special report on the announcement will also include Tom Watson’s selections for the American team.
