Almost one in four golfers in the current top 100 is not eligible to play in the Ryder Cup, including the current world number one and six. Simply because of where they were born. Within the next decade, this one in four will likely increase to one in three. Elitism in golf is a nineteenth century contraption. In this day and age, golf should be accessible for all. Since 1969, Ryder Cup teams consist of twelve players, plus captain. I am sure that Team Asia (to be) and Team Rest-of-the-World (to be) will present twelve world class golfers as well.
