09:27 AM ET 10.20 | Thomas Bjorn's decision to retire as chairman of the European Tour players' committee should be causing someone at Wentworth, the Tour's base, to have a few sleepless nights. First and foremost, the Dane was, according to those in the know, a "good chairman" and, frankly, you can't afford to lose people like that. Bjorn was obviously being made well aware that things aren't quite as rosy in the European Tour garden at the moment as its powers-that-be would like. Colin Montgomerie has clearly been at the same meetings because he is constantly talking about how important it is from an economic point of view for Europe to win back the Ryder Cup in Wales next October.
