    going live in a few mins....

    I am thinking Tiger picks himself and doesn’t pick Reed.

    Finau, Reed, Woodland, Woods

    I am guessing those nursing injuries will withdraw now that Woods picked Reed.;)

    I don't see why not as long as he's healthy and he's playing well.

    I mean, I don't follow these cup tournaments so I didn't realize there was no rule against a captain picking himself. I always assumed the captain was outside the ropes.

    Judging from his performance in Japan, Tiger is a worth a pick. Probably would have been picked if someone else was Captain.

    Knee injury. Recovery taking longer than anticipated. Either that or he does not want to play with Patrick Reed.;)

    Rickie cut his teeth playing match play. Former US Amateur champion. A terrific choice.
