Player Profile: Bernd Wiesberger
With his first appearance, Bernd Wiesberger makes history as the first Austrian golfer to represent Europe at the Ryder Cup.
A winner in Denmark this season at the Made in HimmerLand on the European Tour, Wiesberger makes his Ryder Cup debut after qualifying via the European Points List. The Austrian was just outside the automatic places heading into the final week of qualifying at the BMW PGA Championship, but a tie for 20th sees Wiesberger head to Whistling Straits for a maiden appearance on Team Europe.
On top of his victory in Austria, Wiesberger has three further top six finishes including a second placed finish at the Omega European Masters. He is no stranger to pressure, having picked up eight victories on the European Tour including two Rolex Series events in the same year at the 2019 Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open and the Italian Open.
