Nick Dougherty has been pipped to a place in this month's Seve Trophy by Phil Archer - who finished runner-up in the Mercedes-Benz Championship in Cologne.

Shaw Hill professional Dougherty looked set for a place in the UK & Ireland team that takes on continental Europe between September 27-30.

But Archer, 35, has done enough to claim a spot.

He said: "Getting into the Seve Trophy is a huge bonus. I wasn't in the reckoning until last week."
