    Ryder Cup Captain's Picks

    I know he's a Panther/Hawk lost soul but I'm still happy to see fellow Iowan Zach Johnson make the Ryder Cup again. I'll be very curious to see who Captain Tom Watson chooses with his three at-large captain's picks. Hopefully the dreadful showing by Tiger this week keeps him off the team.

    I thought this would be about Tiger.

    Johnson and Kuchar are the only two qualifiers with winning records in Ryder Cup. Johnson 6-4-3 and Kuchar 3-2-2.

    Re: Ryder Cup Captain's Picks

    I actually was a supporter of Tiger up until last year. He's past his prime. Needs to give up the game and become a sex addict counselor.

    Re: Ryder Cup Captain's Picks

    Kuchar and Dufner are probably out with injuries. So that moves Ryan Moore up to the top 9.

    If i were to pick 3 it would be: Keegan, Harris English, and Bradnt Snedker (only if Stricker didn't want to play)

    Doesn't really matter the Euro team is going to smoke the US.

    Re: Ryder Cup Captain's Picks

    When does he have to make the picks? Hunter Mahan has started to pick it up a little but may want to see if that continues before considering him. Also Keegan Bradley played at Gleneagles with Tom Watson earlier this year and has Ryder Cup experience, I would think he will get in and get paired with Phil again.

    Snedeker is having a tough year. Keegan failed to make the cutat the PGA. Harris is a small tournament player. Not much left in the cupboard. Tiger has lower back spasms, Dufner has neck problems, Kuchar has back problems. Sounds like last year's oline.

    Re: Ryder Cup Captain's Picks

    Tiger will not be on the team, and I sure hope he doesn't pick that Aggie Ryan Palmer. He is a pompous ***.

    The team above is beat up. Can either Dufner or Kuchar go? I know Snedeker has been battling injuries, as well, but he seems like a good "team" guy. If he's fit, he would be a choice for me if I were in Tom's shoes. Hell, if I was in Tom's shoes, I might just lace them up myself.

    Probably be Snedeker, Stricker and Webb Simpson.

    EDIT: If Kuchar can't go, Ryan Moore or Bradley.

    Re: Ryder Cup Captain's Picks

    I follow golf more than the average sports fan (I watch almost every week), but I can't put faces to four of those names. Jimmy Walker, @ #4 I must be watching with my eyes closed more that I think, Patrick Reed, Ryan Moore, Brendon Todd, this seems like a bad sign for our team.

    Yes to both of these.

    Re: Ryder Cup Captain's Picks

    Considering you have the Wyndham, and first two tournaments of the FedEx Cup to play before he has to make his three captains picks, a lot can happen.

    Stricker was named a Vice-Captain last week, but could still be an at-large pick.
