Ryder Cup captain Jose Maria Olazabal tells Padraig Harrington he needs to perform at the US PGA Championship to have a chance of playing in the Ryder Cup.

Ryder Cup captain Jose Maria Olazabal has told Padraig Harrington that he needs to perform at the US PGA Championship if he is to have a chance of playing in the Ryder Cup.

Harrington is ranked 19th in the Ryder Cup standings and may have to rely on being given a wildcard by Olazabal, but the Spaniard has made it clear that Harrington will need to perform.

Olazabal said: "Padraig will have to do extraordinary well at the US PGA. I think his putting has let him down this year. He has three weeks left. It's going to be up to him."

However, Harrington responded: "I can't concentrate on something I have not got control over. There are too many variables. The positive is that I like this style of golf course."

Harrington could find himself up against Ian Poulter and Sergio Garcia for a wildcard place.
