Wish AK's game was stronger this year...

Boo's too, I suppose.

No horsey ride after the tee shot this year. ;)

Before his surgery, AK was doing OK, considering he was injured. He's looking at an August return to competition and hopes to play the PGA. I wish him luck and hope he can get everything fully rehab'd in time for the Ryder. He's 5th in the rankings.

I'd like to see AK play. That was a great show he put on last time and I think he deserves a spot if he's ready to go. It looks like that's doubtful at this point though.

 

I'd like to see Tiger play well. As much as everyone loves to hate him, and as much as I think he's a tool for doing what he did, golf is more fun with Tiger near the top.

 

It would be fun to do a Rider Cup Bracket, where each participant picks the wins, losses, and halves each day.

SCOR 42,46,50,54,58* - SCOR/KBS Genius S

The best 12 players over the last three months, based on placement in Tour events.

 

Qualification up to a year ago is old hat and stupid. You want the players who are playing their best NOW on the team. Also, names don't mean victories. Go with who wins in match play, not whose name is biggest. You want a victory, or you want names?

I'm gonna throw Justin Leonard's name in the hat too. Guy is great in match play. Rickie Fowler and Ryan Moore would be good additions too, IMO.

In The Bag
Driver: TaylorMade M2 (2017) w/ Project X T1100 HZRDUS Handcrafted 65x 
Strong 3 wood: Taylormade M1 15* w/ ProjectX T1100 HZRDUS handcrafted 75x
3 Hybrid: Adams PRO 18* w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
4 Hybrid: Adams PRO 20* (bent to 21*) w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
4-AW: TaylorMade P770 w/ Dynamic Gold Tour Issue Black Onyx S400

SW: 56* Scratch Tour Dept(CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner

XW: 64* Cally XForged Vintage w/ DG X100 8 iron tiger stepped
Putter: Nike Method Prototype 006 at 34"

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

I don't think Pavin will play, but probably can't rule it out. Mine, in no particular order:

 

1. PM

2. Mahan

3. Stricker

4. Bubba Watson

5. Dustin Johnson

6. Furyk

7. Kim

8. Crane

9. Rickie Fowler

10. JB Holmes

11. Zach Johnson

12. Ryan Moore

 

Could you imagine Furyk and Watson paired together? Or DJ and Stricker together? Or Holmes and Z. Johnson? That could be scary pairings, so long as the bombers can get stay near the fairway. Fowler could be paird with Mickelson, and Crane could just mentally unnerve his opponents with his slow-as-a-glacier pace.

I really like it too, but Kim only if he VASTLY improves between now and the Ryder. +16 this weekend wasn't what I expected to see from him. I know he's just getting back, but if he doesn't do better, FAST, then I think he's coming back too soon.

Very true. He could be put on the bench, so to speak, for some of the match-ups. Kind of like a "play when necessary, based on how he feels" type of deal.

Why, why, WHY would Pavin waste a captain's pick on Tiger? Didn't anyone learn from the last 4 or 5 Ryder Cups? Having the #1 golfer does NOT mean you'll win, yet a Tiger-less '08 squad managed just fine. Stupid, stupid, stupid move! It be different if he was playing better, because he'd have earned a spot. Why waste it on a guy that's played terrible- especially of late- when someone that is at least playing consistently gives the team a better chance of winning. The only way this team has any chance is if Tiger's paired with Stricker the whole time, but that's assuming he gets his head out of his @ss by then.

 

Europe, sounds like you already have this in the bag, especially with the how long that team looks on paper.

It does not look good for the USA this year. The European team is stronger than ever, and we have no one who is really hot this year. Our Top Two players in the world look terrible, and even our match play specialists (Furyk and Leonard) are not playing very well. This is one year I desperately want to win. The thought of Mrs. Doubtfire hoisting the Ryder Cup makes me vomit. I would hope if we go down, Corey Pavin would kick his limp-wristed ass just to salvage our dignity.

Here is who my team would be if the points stopped accruing today...

 

1. Phil Mickelson

2. Hunter Mahan

3. Jim Furyk

4. Steve Stricker

5. Jeff Overton

6. Anthony Kim

7. Matt Kuchar

8. Lucas Glover

 

Captain's Picks

9. Tiger Woods

10. Sean O'Hair

11. Dustin Johnson

12. Rickie Fowler

 

While I keep thinking that this years squad doesn't have a snowballs chance in you know where, I can't also stop thinking that their will be enough new blood on the team that it will spurn the squad to play with some enthusiasm and moxie that the team had a few years ago at Valhalla.

Take Tiger off the list and add someone that's had a more consistent/better year and this isn't that bad of a team.
