Kuchar, Holmes, Fowler Receive Captain’s Picks to Ryder Cup Team

Rickie Fowler, JB Holmes, and Matt Kuchar became three of Davis Love’s four Captain’s Picks for the USA Ryder Cup team which will battle Europe at Hazeltine National Sept. 29 – Oct. Europe has won the last three Cups in a row.

The final spot looks to be a battle between Bubba Watson and Bill Haas. Fowler will play well in a pod with Reed, Mickelson, and DJ, easily interchangable with any of them for either fourballs or alternate shot. Holmes will be a natural with equally long Matt Kuchar or, if he makes the team, Bubba Watson.

Bill Haas, the only other likely candidate, would instead pair well with Jimmy Walker and mild-mannered Zach Johnson.

The final spot will be announced Sunday September 25th at halffime of the Bears-Cowboys Sunday night football game. Ryder Cup week starts the next day.
