So I know we are still months away from the Ryder Cup, but I happened to check the current standings for the US team as of today (February 22, 2010) and if it were to end today the US team would have a few interesting looks. Take a look at the standings:

1 1 Steve Stricker 8 2,068.530

2 2 Dustin Johnson 10 1,963.150

4 4 Stewart Cink 8 1,795.017

5 5 Tiger Woods 4 1,286.163

6 6 Phil Mickelson 6 1,154.210

7 10 Ben Crane 7 1,126.773

8 7 David Duval 6 1,117.270

9 8 J.B. Holmes 6 1,025.468

10 9 Ryan Palmer 5 1,018.842

11 11 Kenny Perry 6 988.277

12 13 Matt Kuchar 9 961.076

13 12 Bill Haas 4 923.850

14 14 Chad Campbell 9 906.993

15 15 Ricky Barnes 6 834.552

16 16 Tom Watson 2 732.603

17 18 Sean O'Hair 8 725.980

18 17 Brandt Snedeker 8 639.476

19 20 Hunter Mahan 8 622.210

20 19 Alex Prugh 5 585.246

21 27 Nick Watney 9 571.262

22 21 Steve Marino 5 565.448

23 24 Ryan Moore 6 534.773

24 22 Bubba Watson 8 517.851

25 23 Paul Goydos 7 513.153

 

Obviously, this is the top 25 as of today, but a few names jump out at me. The biggest is number 8, David Duval. If we ended today he would make the team! Who would have ever thought after all he went through with his game that he would be in the running for a spot on the Ryder Cup team.

 

I have a feeling there will be a lot of surprises on the team this year and while youth and fresh faces might be good for the US...I'm afraid that could also be their downfall. Needless, to say it should be interesting to see how this pans out over the next few months.

I agree, some of these names I believe will not be there come Ryder Cup pick time. Ben Crane's another name that in my honest opinion along with David Duval don't belong on the team. just a couple good weeks shouldn't put you on the team. But we'll see by the time the picks have to be made what the list looks like then. I mean how can Matt Kuchar be below DD when he's won twice in the last 6 months and DD wins = 0. Oh that's right DD finished well in the US OPEN. Bad System. Don't get me wrong I love DD and want him to be on Top again and if he wins he deserves to be on the team but shooting 78's and missing too many cuts with one or two good finishes shouldn't earn you a spot.

I agree, Ben Crane is a name that I don't see hanging around too long. I just found it interesting to look at the standings this early in the season to see where everyone stands. I think this list will change dramatically, but I also think we will see some big surprises on the US team this year.

The Euro side scares me, especially in the next 4-6 years with McIlroy, Hanson, Stenson, Noren and Matteo Manassero.

 

I hope that Pavin follows the same idea that Azinger did by giving young guys a chance over some veteran who doesn't have much of a record. I'd be interested to see if Fowler can get up there close in points.

I agree completely about the European side. They have a lot of young guns that are already big players in the game so they will be stacked for a few years to come. The US has some young guns, but they just don't play at the consistency of the European side's younger players.

It's just facts right now. The European Tour has much better younger players right now .... or better put the European younger players are playing to their potential. Now if some of our younger guys can start to get some confidence while Tiger is out and maybe win a tourney or two that can only help American golf IMO. We'll just have to wait and see how it all pans out when it comes time to pick em time.

True statement...I think the win for Hunter Mahan today sets the pace for one of the younger US players. He really needed to get a win like that today and hopefully it will get him in the line for being a lock for the US team.
