. The composition of the threesomes was definitely not a coincidence: Alexander Levy (France), winner of the 2016
A possible wild card for Alexander Levy has been a talking point for weeks. And naturally there is nothing French golf fans would love more as the – after the Olympic Games and football World Cup – third biggest sports event which will take place for the first time ever in France. However, Thomas Björn was not to be drawn on the subject at the
“They can all play golf,” knows Björn, “but I have to get an idea of how the players function in certain situations and in the end choose those that gel together to make up the best team.” Whilst Alexander Levy’s participation is therefore still open, as far as Martin Kaymer (Germany) is concerned, Björn excludes even theoretical chances of a wild card. Björn: “I know him very well and he is without doubt one of the world’s best pros and would be an excellent addition to every team. At the moment however, things are not going well as he, as far as I can see, is caught up between the European Tour and the PGA Tour, and can’t decide. But he’s smart enough to sort it out in the future.”
Thomas Björn, himself a three-time Ryder Cup winner, will by the way only be a spectator over the weekend at the

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From 01 September 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 01 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
