Jeff Overton - USA Ryder Cup Team 2010

Jeff Overton is a name that not too many golf punters will know too much about in Europe but they sure will do after the 2010 Ryder Cup, he will be on the plane for the USA team heading to Celtic Manor and it will be his first appearance in the event. He is in fact all ready writing his name into the history books as he is the first ever American player to qualify for the Ryder Cup without a victory on the PGA Tour to his name.

He has earnt his place on the team without a win but he has been remarkably consistent which is likely to stand him in good stead in team competition, he had a good career as an amateur including a winning appearance in the Walker Cup in 2005. That experience in a winning American team will have not gone unnoticed by Corey Pavin and he should be ready to step up to the high pressured environment of a Ryder Cup.

Pavin may well want to get Overton involved at Celtic Manor on the first morning as he looks to get another one of his Rookies on the board, an early start and a good performance will ease the nerves that are sure to be on Overton's mind as he heads to Celtic Manor. It is rare that a rookie will feature in the Top American Points Scorer and that looks the case with Jeff Overton, he is unlikely to play as much as some of his other more experienced team mates making him hard to back in this market.
