Bjorn Rumored To Be Fine For Ryder Cup

Following a shoulder problem which forced Thomas Bjorn out of the European Masters and threatened his Ryder Cup appearance, new reports show that the injury is not as severe as once thought.
There is absolutely no problem, Bjorns manager Guy Kinnings said. The initial prognosis is that it isnt as concerning as some people were speculating.
On Friday in Switzerland, Bjorn hurt his left shoulder on a swing, claiming it felt like it slipped out of its socket.
He stayed on the course and finished his round, but pain resurfaced overnight, and the Danish star pulled out of the tournament on Saturday.
He flew to London that very night and had consultation with a specialist, and then met again on Sunday.
While nothing has been released, Kinnings claims the early prognosis shows that no severe damage was done.
Bjorn has, however, officially pulled out of next weeks WGC American Express Championship to be on the safe side.
Yet, he is hoping to play in the Trophee Lancome, which is the week before the Ryder Cup, and Kinnings said that his client would almost certainly be healthy enough to compete at The Belfry at months end.
Upon hearing the news, European captain Sam Torrance was relieved that his No. 2 man would most likely be in England.
Its wonderful news, he said.
