The Wales Open that was a week from the showdown at the United States had a lot to highlight. The two wild cards at the European Ryder Cup, Lee Westwood and Stephen Gallacher tasted fortunes that very opposite to each other. While, Westwood was successful in making his spot after the second round by two shots, Stephen missed his.
He was left behind by 15 shots after the second round total. Stephen has admitted that it had been very tough for him. He thinks that the mistake that he made was that he was thinking too much about what would happen and was trying too hard, but now that he is not thinking he seems to be in a better position comparatively.
The Scot who is making a first appearance at Ryder Cup has also shown his confidence. He has said that he had done his preparations and was looking forward to the game. He has said that he is all ready to go. He believes that since he is in a good position both mentally and physically, they might be a plus point for him.
Lee has always been the pride of England with eight Ryder Cups in his bag. He has said that he has not been very competitive of late and has been working on the game. He has said that he is working out but is still not very fit for the game. The three weeks that he was not there has somewhere caused him a loss of sharpness which he hopes to regain soon.
There is another player Jamie Donaldson who has kept up his chance too of becoming the maiden Welsh winner of the Ryder Cup which is an national event. Meanwhile, the other players that you look out for are Lowry the Irishman, Joost Luiten of Netherlands and Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium.
