  • Europe captain Padraig Harrington will have three Ryder Cup wild card picks 
  • Harrington requested the change to allow more players to qualify on merit 
  • The Irishman will lead Europe’s defence of the trophy at Whistling Straits

Europe’s Ryder Cup captain Padraig Harrington will have just three wild cards at his disposal for next year’s trophy defence in America — at his own request.

The Irishman wanted the number reduced from the four available to Thomas Bjorn last time.

‘My own feeling is that if you’ve played well enough to finish ninth on the automatic qualifying list, then you’ve done enough to be in the team,’ said Harrington.
