Montgomerie wants form Welshman

Ryder Cup

comment on the article

It would be great to see Rhys Davies flying the flag for Wales at the Ryder Cup.

I certainly think he is the form Welshman playing at the moment. He is the top earner per comp on the Challenge Tour this year, and has won two events on this, and had a good result in terrible conditions at the Wales Open at Celtic Manor a few months ago.

Its only his second year as a pro so hopefully if he gets his card for the European Tour and puts in some good performances Wales may well get their representative.

Jamie Donaldson - if he ups it a few gears!!!
But Dredge has best chance by far but I think he will miss out by a few places and will not be a pick.

"Think this may be more a form of Welsh public relations than Monty actually thinking any of the welsh guys will be good enough to get in the team."

Monty and Public Relations?

I think that Mr Montgomerie thinks that a public relation is a cousin who works for the local council.

London
Whats happened to the "be nice to monty" thing you said a week ago.

I would also like to see some welsh players in the side, it would help to motivate the crowd, if they needed motivating

OPW...

I never said I'd be nice. I apologised for the nickname I provided myself with...

Additionally. Can you really complain about that? He has very little concept of public relations.

Rhys who?? He's the highest ranked Welsh player in the world. He's only about 25 so lots of time to take some titles on the main tour next year...

whats wrong with saying he wants a welshman in the team? it would be good to have a welshman, just like irish players in 2006. i guess some poeple just want to have a go at monty no matter what he says or does

i am not complaining about Monty wanting a Welshman in the team, I am being realistic and saying that unless he drums up some serious form with a few wins next year he won't be there. i think it would be great and add even more to the atmosphere if he made it but the young English guys are ahead of him in the pecking order at the moment with experience in Majors. Chris Wood is the guy to look out for.

there has been a lot said about the Celtic manor setup and what they hope to achieve, I have been to the resort and experienced it first hand in the last two years, sad to say they are not quiet there yet with the service and standard you would expecy at a Ryder cup venue. I look forward to improvements!!!
