European Tour chief executive Keith Pelley insists he will not be afraid to change the rules regarding Ryder Cup eligibility following last months defeat at Hazeltine.Only European Tour members can play on the team, a regulation which meant captain Darren Clarke did not have the option of selecting world No. 12 Paul Casey, who gave up his membership to concentrate on the PGA Tour.The chance to play in the Ryder Cup has long been seen as one of the key ways the European Tour can try to prevent its top stars from playing full time on the more lucrative PGA Tour.But Pelley believes it is his job to make the Tour an attractive enough proposition that players will choose to play on this side of the Atlantic, rather than be forced to do so.We are always talking to our top players, said Pelley, who was responding to calls this week from Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy to change the eligibility criteria. We are always listening to what they have to say. We also want to have the best possible team at the Ryder Cup.We are having discussions regarding the qualification system now. We will continue to have them. We will have them with our players. We will have them with our tournament committee and our board over the coming weeks and months.We will adjust the Ryder Cup qualification if we feel that we need to. We wont be afraid to make the changes.I would say that part of our job at the Tour is to get players to come and play because it is a terrific place to play. We play at world-class resorts, like here in Turkey. We play on great golf courses in great cities. To be a world-class player, the European Tour is a fantastic place to be.Our job as the gatekeepers of the Tour is to provide bigger purses, greater experiences and greater courses so that the players want to play here and play here more than they need to just to stay a member and so be a Ryder Cup player.The Ryder Cup is a critical component of our tour and it is a sensational event. But it shouldnt be the only reason why someone wants to be on our tour. Thats our job at hand right now.Pelley conceded that the topic may have only resurfaced due to the 17-11 defeat at Hazeltine, Europes heaviest in the biennial contest since 1981.McIlroy told the No Laying Up podcast that Caseys absence definitely hurt us and Westwood agreed with his team-mates assertion that the best 12 players should feature on each side, regardless of where they play.At the end of the day, youre still European and you still have the passion to play for Europe and represent them, Westwood said.If you prove that youre world class on, say, the PGA Tour and not the European Tour, why should that have any bearing on whether you can play or not?Speaking during the third round of the Turkish Airlines Open, Pelley also revealed there would be changes in how future Ryder Cup venues are selected, with Turkey a possible host.Italy beat Spain, Germany and Austria to the rights for the 2022 Ryder Cup after what the Tour itself described as an exhaustive and comprehensive bid process.The challenge I had with the process was that all of these organisations host tournaments for us and there is one winner and three losers, Pelley added. The three who were not awarded the Ryder Cup are still our partners. That I found was not a good way forward. Lebron James Sneakers Wholesale . The next step is a better finish.

NORTON, Mass. -- Ryan Moore cant remember the last time he played six straight weeks on the PGA Tour.Its working so well, he might consider doing it more often.Everyone knew that golf was going to be loaded with big events at the end of the year, so Moore decided to pace himself and play often during the end of the year. He wasnt in the Olympics. Hes not even thinking about the Ryder Cup.This is all about the FedEx Cup, and Moore said he could think of 10 million reasons why hed like to win it.The $10 million payoff is still 11 rounds away spread over the next 23 days in three states. Even so, Moore had another reason to believe he was trending in the right direction. He opened with a bogey-free round of 6-under 65 and shared the lead with James Hahn in the Deutsche Bank Championship.Saturday typically is known as moving day on the PGA Tour, except at the TPC Boston. With the traditional Labor Day finish, Saturday could be the end of the season for several players.THE CUT: The top 70 in the FedEx Cup after this week advance to the BMW Championship at Crooked Stick, the third playoff event.Anyone outside the top 70 -- or near the top 70 -- is most likely done for the season if they miss the cut.Two players getting the most attention are Jim Furyk (No. 84) and Steve Stricker (No. 97). Both opened with a 4-under 67 and were two shots out of the lead, and they would appear to be safe to make the cut. That would be the first step. Then, they would need a high finish to advance.Thats still better off than Patton Kizzire, who opened with a 78; K.J. Choi, who shot 74; or Jason Bohn, who shot 72. All of them are outside the cut line, and all are outside the top 70 in the FedEx Cup.THE LEADERS: Moore had been trending in the right direction. Hahn has not.Hahn missed the cut eighth straight times before he won the Wells Fargo Championship. Since then, Hahn has failed to crack the top 40 in seven straight events, and he missed the cut in his last two tournaments.I accomplished my goal. I won another PGA Touur event, I made it to the playoffs, I kept my job for next year, Hahn said.dddddddddddd Theres a lot of positives that come out of this depending on who you ask.Moore, meanwhile, won the John Deere Classic three weeks ago and tied for seventh in The Barclays. He is No. 11 in the FedEx Cup, and a good performance this week would earn him a trip to East Lake for the Tour Championship.PHILS FOLLIES: Phil Mickelson talked passionately about his desire to finish strong in the FedEx Cup playoffs, particularly because he was leading the PGA Tour in adjusted scoring average. If he could keep that lead over the next three weeks, he would win the Vardon Trophy for the first time in his career.Jason Day is right behind him. So is Dustin Johnson.Mickelson didnt help his cause when he opened with a 75, due largely to one hole -- and one decision. He missed the green left on the par-4 sixth, the ball in deep grass inside a water hazard. Mickelson tried to get it out -- not once, but twice -- and the grass was too thick. He then took a penalty drop and made a quadruple-bogey 8.EYE ON THE RYDER CUP: U.S. captain Davis Love III will make three picks for his Ryder Cup team on Sept. 12, and he said every American at the Deutsche Bank is on his radar. Then again, Mickelson said it was obvious without naming names who three of the picks would be.So does form matter?J.B. Holmes sure hopes so. He finished 10th in the standings -- the top eight made the team -- and opened with a 67. So did Jim Furyk, an assistant captain who is 15th in the standings despite missing four months of the season recovering from wrist surgery.DAY SCARE: Jason Day opened with a 70, and then came the real stress. He learned his wife and two children were involved in a traffic incident when their car was struck by a bus. Ellie Day was taken to the hospital as a precaution, though he reported everyone was doing fine. ' ' '
