After being on the edge of automatic qualification on both lists, Thorbjørn Olesen managed to claim the final spot on the World Points List to become another rookie in the European side at Le Golf National. The Dane has been in consistent form this season on the European Tour, collecting a win at the Italian Open – the third Rolex Series Event of the season. Since then he has picked up four top six finishes including a T2 at the BMW International Open, T3 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, solo fourth at the Nordea Masters and T6 at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open hosted by the Rory Foundation. He has without a doubt fought his way into Bjorn’s squad.
