Doha - Ryder Cup hero Sergio Garcia on Tuesday predicted there would be up to five players who would make their debuts in this year's European team.
Speaking in Doha, ahead of his first tournament of the year, the Qatar Masters, Garcia said he expected new players to come to the fore this season.
"I would probably expect to see four or five new faces," he told reporters.
"That's the way it looks at the moment. You never know as the year goes by, but at the moment it looks like there's probably between three and five young guys that could be on that team in September."
One of these could be 21-year-old Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick, added Garcia.
"Matt obviously has a good chance of making the team. He's been playing very well and has got a lot of potential."
This year's event will be held at Hazletine, Minnesota, in September.
Garcia is likely to be in the team and playing for his sixth victory in a Ryder Cup.
