Ryder Cup hopefuls chase Ballyliffin glory 27.06.18

THOMAS Pieters, a breakout star of The 2016 Ryder Cup, will be aiming to boost his chances of a return to Team Europe when he joins fellow hopefuls Alexander Levy and Thorbjørn Olesen at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open in Ballyliffin, the season’s fourth Rolex Series event.
The race for The Ryder Cup is intensifying, with just three months to go until Thomas Bjørn’s team arrives at Le Golf National in Paris hoping to reclaim the trophy by overcoming Jim Furyk’s American team.
As one of the eight Rolex Series events on the European Tour’s 2018 Race to Dubai, the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open is an important tournament for those hoping to force their way into contention for Ryder Cup qualification.
For Pieters, Olesen and Levy, the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open will represent a huge opportunity to play their way into the plans of Bjørn, who will also be present at Ballyliffin Golf Club.

“I feel like my game is in good shape at the moment and I’m really looking forward to this run of Rolex Series events,” said Pieters. “The Dubai Duty Free Irish Open is always a great tournament with incredible support so hopefully I can perform and it can provide the platform for a big summer.”
