AFTER outshining compatriot Sergio Garcia at the Rio Olympics, Rafael Cabrera-Bello is eyeing up a place at the Ryder Cup.
Shooting a seven-under-par round on day one at the Wyndham Championship in North Carolina, USA, Cabrera-Bello now wants to secure a place on Europe’s Ryder Cup team.
He is currently on the borderline of earning selection, with the top nine ranked players making the team automatically before captain Darren Clarke adds three more picks.
“Rio was the first time I was really not playing for myself, just playing for my country and obviously it’s a huge honour but also big responsibility and I wanted to do good and I was pleased with my result,” Cabrera-Bello told reporters.
“I would have wanted to win a medal but given how it turned out it was a very good week and coming into this week, I felt the game was good.”
He added: “The aim now is to play as well as possible and hopefully I can make the Ryder Cup side.”
