Captain Ian Woosnam


Hi-Tec’s Padraig Harrington cemented his place on the Ryder cup team by surging to the top of the leaderboard in Munich over the weekend after finishing tied on 273, 15 under par, on a day of high drama in Bavaria.

Harrington, who had reached the 72nd hole requiring a birdie four to snatch the title, found sand with his second shot and splashed out to 12 feet before watching his birdie putt slip just past the hole. However a par and a round of 69 were sufficient to ensure the Irishman found his way into the play-off with Henrik Stenson of Sweden and South African Retief Goosen.

Harrington, bunkered for a second time on the hole, splashed out close while Goosen two-putted for a birdie four. However it all became academic when Stenson added the BMW International Open to the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters title he won at the start of 2006 and to get his hands on a BMW title after missing out in a play-off to Gonzalo Fernandez-Castañon in the BMW Asian Open in April

Harrington's last round of 64, combined with Montgomerie and Howell both shooting 66, seems now to have ensured McGinley and Jose Maria Olazabal will take the ninth and 10th places in the European Ryder cup team.

That left Hi-Tec’s Ryder cup captain Ian Woosnam to pick his wildcards, which proved a tough decision. The Ryder cup captain went opted for Darren Clarke (Ire) and Lee Westwood (Eng) to complete his 12 man team to play at the K club which includes players: Paul Casey, Luke Donald, Sergio Garcia, Padraig Harrington, David Howell, Robert Karlsson, Paul McGinley, Colin Montgomerie, José Maria Olazábal and Henrik Stenson.

The Ryder Cup 06 will be held from the 22-24th September at the K club, Republic of Ireland.

Ryder cup captain, Ian Woosnam will be wearing the all new C2 comfort and Padraig Harrington will be sporting the new CDT Superpower tour – Available in the shops February.
