I always look forward to the Presidents Cup with much anticipation.

Because as a former South African and a Canadian Citizen, I always pull for the “Rest of the World.”  They have not been very successful in recent years, but this year may be different.  The American team is strong, with Major Champions Jordan Spieth and Zach Johnson heading a powerful contingent.  However, close behind are Jason Day and Louis Oosthuizen, who has been strong in the Majors.  Looks like an interesting battle.  Tough choices for the Captain’s Picks after the PGA Championship!  Bleacher Report has put together a list of players who can still make the US Team if they have a strong showing in the next few months!

The 2015 Presidents Cup is exactly 75 days away starting on Thursday, October 8, but the date is about all that’s set in stone when it comes to the United States’ plan of duplicating its 2013 triumph over the international team.

Though the process is nearing its end, there are still months of FedEx Cup points to sort out before the top 10 Americans in the standings can be determined.

Tour players have been collecting those points since the BMW Championship in 2013 and will continue to fight for pole position through the 2015 Deutsche Bank Championship (September 4-7).

Immediately after that event, U.S. captain Jay Haas and his assistants Fred Couples and Davis Love III will have a total of two captain’s picks to make on September 8 to finalize the squad.

But who’s most likely to be on Hass’ short list in two months’ time? Which players are on the cusp of breaking into the top 10 after two years of diligently compiling FedEx Cup points for a shot at international glory?

Billy Horschel is right on the bubble!

Well, guys like J.B. Holmes, Brandt Snedeker and Robert Streb are all poised to crack that list, but they could hardly be considered “under the radar.” So far this season, Snedeker has eight top-10 finishes, while Streb has seven, and Holmes has five (not to mention each of them has also won an event this season and featured in the top 10 of last week’s British Open).

Charlie Hoffman needs to step up his game in the next few weeks!

But others have been playing well—just not quite so prominently.

Let’s take a look at 10 surprising players who have been putting in the work behind the scenes over the last two years and quietly inching their way into contention for the 2015 U.S Presidents Cup team.
