Faldo's set for flying visit to Scotland

By Brian Keogh

Ryder Cup skipper Nick Faldo will make a flying 8-hour visit to Gleneagles on Sunday - fuelling speculation that he has already decided his wildcards.

The English ace, 51, will jet in to Dundee on the Sunday morning where he'll be met by a chauffeur-driven car and then escorted to Perthshire.

The six-time major winner will watch the closing round of the Johnnie Waker Championship and then announce his two picks in a televised press conference at 6pm.

But while England's Paul Casey has decided to take his chances of earning a pick by remaining in the US for this week's FedEx Cup event in Boston, Faldo appeared to give away his hand in a CBS commentary on Sunday's Barclays in New Jersey.

As Casey stood over a 23 foot putt on the 18th to tie for seventh, Faldo said: "Okay, if he makes this, he's in the team."

As Casey rolled home the putt, Faldo added: "Okay, okay, I can't quite make my mind up yet."

But Casey joked: "Oh, we've got it on tape; lawyers would have a field day with that one. But the Ryder Cup is at the back of my mind right now.

"I'd love to be on that team. Darren has put the cats amongst the pigeons today winning. That was a great win. Went out there from the front, extended the lead. It was impressive stuff.

"You know, we've got (Ian) Poulter, as well, who is just outside. It's going to be tough."

Sniggering, Casey added: "I have spoken to Nick. I won't repeat what he said, but I mean, he hasn't told me what he's doing yet.

"He's keeping his cards close to his chest, and I've just got to continue to focus on my game and play good golf."
