Spaniard Rafa Cabrera Bello is confident he has boosted his chances of playing in the Ryder Cup despite a poor finish last weekend. Cabrera Bello decided to play in the Dell Technologies Championship, rather than the Made In Denmark under the watchful eye of captain Thomas Bjorn.
The 34-year-old impressed as he recorded a top-10 finish after four sub-70 rounds. However, Cabrera Bello could have gone all the way this weekend but he failed to push on during Monday’s final round.
He dropped shots at 13, 15 and the last but he is still confident it could be enough to make Bjorn’s team for the tournament later this month.
“Obviously right now disappointed, but I gave myself a chance, and that’s obviously good in the big picture,” he told Sky Sports.
“This is my fifth week in a row, and it’s been lots of golf lately for me. I’ve kind of been pushing through, and I couldn’t afford to take this week off because I wasn’t sure if I would have made next week. And it didn’t turn out all that bad being here.
“I’ve done everything I can. I love Ryder Cup, and it would be a huge honour to represent my continent again. And I would be 100 per cent available if Thomas needs me.”
