Sandy Lyle looks around at the rest of the field vying to become Europe's next Ryder Cup captain and reasons that his time must be nigh.

The America captain, Paul Azinger, yesterday welcomed Boo Weekley's qualification for his Ryder Cup team to face Europe in Kentucky next month and the unashamed redneck immediately revealed his intentions by warning Padraig Harrington, the Open and USPGA champion, "you have a target on your back".

On the day that Colin Montgomerie equalled his worst score in a major, Justin Rose made a welcome return to form. The humiliating experience of shooting 84 could signal the end of the Scot's major odyssey, but for the Englishman this could just be the inspiration he needs to put his march to the big-time back on its feet.
