Golden Rose backs Ryder rookie Pieters


HONG KONG: Olympic gold medallist Justin Rose gave Ryder Cup rookie Thomas Pieters a ringing endorsement Wednesday after the big-hitting Belgian was picked for the biennial match against the US next month. “The really difficult decision was choosing Thomas Pieters over Russell Knox, two guys who are in form, two guys who deserve their place in the team,” Rose told a news teleconference, as he confirmed he would defend his Hong Kong Open title in December. Europe’s Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke announced England’s Lee Westwood, Germany’s Martin Kaymer and Pieters as his three wildcards on Tuesday.
