Captain Darren Clarke has decided not to change Europe's qualifying system for next year's Ryder Cup at Hazeltine.
That means the Northern Irishman, 46, will have three wildcard picks to join the nine men who qualify automatically.
The top four players in the European points list will qualify for next September's competition, along with the top five in the world points list.
"It would have been foolish to make any changes," said Clarke, speaking in the build-up to this week's Irish Open."Clarke, who is in the Irish Open field, also said breezy and wet conditions at Royal County Down will suit him.
