Give Padraig Harrington eight Ryder Cup wildcard picks - Justin Rose

Five-time Ryder Cup player and four time winner Justin Rose feels the qualification system for this year's event will now have to be changed. 

The Masters and the PGA Championship have both been postponed due to the coronavirus crisis and both the PGA and European Tours are currently suspended.

It's likely that the season's first two majors will now take place in the late Summer or Autumn, and Rose thinks if the Ryder Cup goes ahead as planned in September, then European captain Padraig Harrington should instead be allowed increased wildcard selections:

"The qualification period for the Ryder Cup would also be very condensed," the former world number told the Press Association. "Looking at it personally I'm not in as good a position as I'd like to be so it makes qualification trickier with events being stripped out so the teams might look a little different this time around.

"If it goes ahead in 2020 I don't know if it's more important that we change the qualification criteria and Padraig gets eight picks maybe given the circumstances.

"Rules are rules and you've got to have some type of guideline but it's an imperfect world at the moment and we've got to make the best of a bad situation and either keep it where it is and the teams fall where they may, or you move it a year and try to make it a bit more of a highlight.

"The most important thing is that the health of the world is better because the Ryder Cup is such an international event. I think the Ryder Cup deserves to be the highlight of the schedule and deserves to have the players look forward to it and the fans to be excited about it
