We are all looking forward to the Ryder Cup next week, and as I’m writing this, I have not heard who Davis Love III has chosen for his final Captain’s Pick. I hope it is Ryan Moore after watching his courageous performance in the Tour Championship. I think he will be a huge asset to the team and will have a steadying and calming influence on whoever he is paired with.
But some Captain’s picks have been a little questionable, and we even had a player who was 68th in the world rankings was selected. Go figure! Here is a list of strange captain picks through the years by Alex Myers of Golf Digest. Thanks for sharing!
You probably don’t remember these guys playing for Team USA at the Ryder Cup.
