By Mark Lamport-Stokes (Reuters) - United States Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III says he will take a leaf out of 2008 skipper Paul Azinger's book before he announces his four wildcard picks for this year's competition against holders Europe. Azinger, the most recent U.S. captain to achieve success against Europe, wanted his players to have "a vested interest" in their team at Valhalla eight years ago and he relied on the input of the automatic qualifiers for his wildcard selections. Love, who will choose three of his captain's picks after the BMW Championship on Sept. 11 and his final selection two weeks later after the Tour Championship, plans to follow suit for the three-day event at Hazeltine, Minnesota that starts on Sept. 30.

Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III has four weeks to find four players to fill out his U.S. team, and there won't be a lack of information. ''Anybody in the top 100 has to be our radar because a guy could get hot the next two weeks and move himself to the Tour Championship and be in the running for the FedEx Cup,'' Love said. The Barclays ended U.S. qualifying for the eight automatic spots, and while there was a flutter of excitement from Rickie Fowler, there was no change among the top eight when Fowler collapsed over the final four holes.

Twice major winner Martin Kaymer has urged European captain Darren Clarke to pick Belgian Thomas Pieters on Tuesday as one of his three wildcard choices for next month's Ryder Cup at Hazeltine, Minnesota. Pieters is in red-hot form after winning the Made In Denmark event on Sunday, finishing second at the preceding Czech Masters and claiming fourth place at this month's Rio Olympics. "If I would be the captain he would be my pick for sure because he brings something special to the team," Kaymer told Sky Sports television after playing alongside the 24-year-old in the final round in Denmark.

August 29, 2016Farewell edition of Deutsche Bank Championship? (The Associated Press)

The Deutsche Bank Championship, the second event of the FedEx Cup playoffs, might be played at TPC Boston in Norton, Mass., for the last time this week for a couple of reasons. Deutsche Bank's contract as title sponsor ends this year, and Bill Woodley, chief executive officer of Deutsche Bank Americas, wouldn't say recently if the German banking giant, which has had problems, will renew. In addition, there was talk earlier this year that the PGA Tour might shorten the playoffs from four events to three, and if that happens, it seems that the Deutsche Bank Championship might not make the cut.

Five months after giving away a major championship with a late meltdown, Ariya Jutanugarn ran away with the Canadian Pacific Women's Open at chilly Priddis Greens for her fifth victory in 10 events. Jutanugarn made a 12-birdie putt on the final hole for a 6-under 66 and a four-stroke victory over South Korea's Sei Young Kim. ''I feel like I'm going to withdraw this week because my knee hurt so bad last week,'' Jutanugarn said.

(Reuters) - Ayako Uehara became the fourth golfer in LPGA history to record two hole-in-ones in the same tournament when the Japanese player aced the par-three eighth in her final round at the Canadian Women's Open on Sunday. Another highlight of Uehara's final round five-under 67 was a hole-out for an eagle from 150 yards on the par-four fourth. "It turned out to be a really memorable tournament," said Uehara, who finished a season-high tied for 10th at 12-under 276, 11 adrift of runaway winner Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand.
