Ryo makes his case for Presidents Cup

September 06, 2009

An 18-year-old in the Presidents Cup? It seems all but certain at this point, as Ryo Ishikawa, the 17-year-old Japanese wunderkind (who turns 18 later this month), won the Fujisankei Classic by five strokes today, his third victory on the Japan Golf Tour this year.

International team captain Greg Norman announces his two captain's picks on Tuesday.

Ishikawa has Geoff Ogilvy's endorsement."Ishikawa should definitely get picked," Ogilvy said Saturday. "I think he should be guaranteed at this point. He's playing well every week, so how can you not pick him?"
