Nicolas Colsaerts is surprised that Martin Kaymer has chosen to skip the Johnnie Walker Championship, which starts at Gleneagles today, despite his Ryder Cup place being in jeopardy.

If the Belgian finishes in the top two, he can force his way into Jose Maria Olazabal's automatic top 10 for Chicago next month. That would leave ex-world No 1 Kaymer needing a captain's pick to make the team.

Colsaerts, who was 1,305th in the world three years ago, said: "Everybody goes about their business in different ways, but I'm amazed like everyone else."
