Tryon gets Euro Tour invite


Ty Tryon has been given a sponsor's invitation to the star-studded field at next week's Alstom Open de France at Le Golf National in Versailles.

Tryon has been trying to jumpstart his once-promising professional career, making the cut at this month’s U.S. Open, his first major. Now he has an opportunity in a European Tour field which includes four of the top 10 players in the world.

Tryon's connection with France comes by way of famed biomechanic Jean-Jacques Rivet who has been working with the 26-year-old over the last several months. Rivet is based at the Biomecaswing Studio in Cannes but is part of the David Leadbetter stable and visits Tryon at the Leadbetter Academy at ChampionsGate in Florida.

'I am so happy for Ty and the progression he is making with David and myself, its a really great challenge but its both interesting and motivating,” Rivet said.

Rivet works with many top players in the Leadbetter stable and uses physiological analysis and simple corrective procedures to aid his clients.

Tryon burst onto the scene in 2001, becoming the youngest player to qualify for the PGA Tour when he was just 17. Since then his life has taken many different turns. He's married with a young child and has spent the last six years battling on the mini tours.

Golf Channel will have coverage of the Alstom Open de France beginning Thursday, July 1.
