    • Tommy Fleetwood
    • Rory McIlroy
    • Thorbjorn Olesen
    • Jon Rahm
    • Alex Noren

    Will be interesting to see who the Europe captain's picks are. The US team only has three that are playing well. Should be a good match.
     
  9. My prediction for tomorrow is:

    Poulter, Bello, Fitzpatrick, Casey.

    I think this is a great pick.
     
  11. Surprised that Bjorn went ALL IN on experience over form. Garcia? Stenson? Both in awful form, especially Garcia who has done little to nothing since winning the '17 Masters. The USA are going to head into this clear favorites. Experience plays a part but it's form and good play that is going to ultimately get it done.

    For the record, I am Canadian.

    Europe picks Garcia, Poulter, Stenson, Casey for Ryder Cup

    "LONDON (AP) — Sergio Garcia, Ian Poulter, Henrik Stenson and Paul Casey are the European team's wild-card selections for the Ryder Cup.

    European captain Thomas Bjorn made the announcement Wednesday, picking experienced players to balance a team containing five rookies among the automatic qualifiers."

    Yep, Team USA looking ominous.

    Trying to work out who would be the better final pick; Finau or Kuch?

    That's a tough one...will jumping be involved? If so, Kuch!

  15. Kuch was named a VC, more or less rules him out as being the final pick.

    OK you Yanks, let's be having you!

    We are going to open up a can of serious WhoopAss on you when this thing starts on Friday. We have Poulter! We have Olesen! We have Hatton! Who have you got? Some old-timers and a lot of fresh faced kids and has-beens. You are all washed up. What with Rory's putting, Sergio's form and Molinari's aggression, you guys don't stand a chance!!
