Euro Ryder Cup captain Harrington picks Sergio Garcia, Ian Poulter, Shane Lowry

European Ryder Cup captain Padraig Harrington announced on Sunday, Sergio Garcia, Ian Poulter and Shane Lowry as his three wildcard selections.

Garcia and Poulter weren’t surprises as Harrington said earlier this summer, “Sergio almost has to lose a limb to avoid being selected and Poulter is not far behind.”

The ultimate decision seemed to come down to Lowry or Justin Rose. When Bernd Wiesberger and Lee Westwood locked up the final spots – along with Matthew Fitzpatrick and Tyrrell Hatton – on Sunday at the BMW PGA Championship, it was Lowry and Rose who were left to the captain’s discretion.
