Harrington third in Ryder table
Tuesday 08 September 2009
Padraig Harrington's fourth place finish in the US Tour's Deutsche Bank Championship puts him third on the European Ryder Cup table.
Events on both sides of the Atlantic count towards the team, with the first four automatic positions decided by world ranking points earned.
Welshman Rhys Davies and Swede Steven Jeppesen appear on the list because the European Challenge Tour event in the Canary Islands in which they finished first and second on Sunday carried world points as well.
