Niclas Fasth
Fasth's first Major was The Open in 2001 - and he came second
Fasth surprised many when he finished second to David Duval at The Open last year, and in turn booked his spot in Sam Torrance's team.

The Swede has performed well on a number of occasions in 2002. A second in the Dubai Desert Classic was followed by another runner-up spot in the Murphy's Irish Open and a sixth spot in the Smurfit European Open.

Despite turning professional back in 1993, he has only recently found his best form, and in the last three years has won in Warsaw and Madeira.
