Perry Announces He's Skipping Ryder Cup to Prepare for Ryder Cup
Coming off a backdoor win at the Buick Open, Kenny Perry announced that he has decided to skip the 2008 Ryder Cup in order to prepare for the 2010 Ryder Cup. "I know this is disappointing to a lot of people, but if I play in this year's Ryder Cup, there's a chance I might miss out on the Ryder Cup two years from now, and frankly, I couldn't live with that." The 2010 Ryder Cup is scheduled to be played at Celtic Manor in Wales. "My wife and I have talked for years about wanting to visit Wales, it's been a dream of ours really, and making it on the 2010 Ryder Cup team may be the only way we ever get there."
