Making the Cup cut


LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England - Sandra Gal is currently tied for the lead as I depart the media center at the Ricoh Women's British Open Championship.

Gal is not eligible for the European Solheim team at present because she is not a member of the Ladies European Tour. And she has not played enough events to qualify through the world rankings either.

The LET would have to grant her a membership in order for her to be eligible for a captain's pick from Alison Nicholas.

This topic has not really been discussed but could certainly cause some headaches should she continue to play well this week.

Both Anna Nordqvist and Karen Stupples will also require a captain's pick because they have failed to play the required six events needed to be eligible to make the team through the world ranking list.
