It seems the Race to Dubai has influenced Jon Rahn to commit to playing more on the European Tour come 2018 in a quest to surge up the ultimate prize table for next season.
Rahn who walked away with the final Tour event of the 2017 season by winning the DP World Tour Championship wants to give himself a better chance next season of taking the Race to Dubai title.
That also bodes well for Team Europe as we enter the straight for Ryder Cup selections, although with his current world ranking he shouldn’t have much trouble there.
Another European player to commit to more playing time on this side of the pond is Paul Casey.
Casey who has gradually pulled himself back into the Worlds top 20 and playing some of the best golf of his career, has stated that he would like to be part of the European team for the 2018 Ryder Cup.
Captain Thomas Bjorn has already shown faith in the 40-year old by picking him as a wildcard for the Eurasia Cup being played in Malaysia come January.
Casey’s last appearance in a Ryder cup was way back in 2006 and after relinquishing his European Tour card to concentrate his efforts on the PGA Tour, made him unavailable for selection last time around.
His inclusion into the team can only be a massive benefit.
