It's only January and we still have four major championships to play...but we already know who will be in Europe's Ryder Cup team

DEREK LAWRENSON - WORLD OF GOLF:In all my years writing about the Ryder Cup I can’t recall anything to compare to this year, where practically the entire European team looks done and dusted and we are only in January. Ahead of us we have got four major championships, three World Golf Championship events, any number of money-laden Rolex tournaments — in other words, millions upon millions of Ryder Cup qualifying points to contest. We have also got a qualification system heavily weighted in favour of what happens after May. But I’d be amazed if 10 of the team haven’t identified themselves already, and perhaps even more than that.
