Davis Love the three hundred and thirty third must not have watched Rickie Fowler in the singles at Celtic Manor because he bypassed him and the WGC Accenture Matchplay champion Hunter Mahan for this years USA team.
Love went instead for Jim “five hour” Furyk, Steve Stricker, Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker as his picks. Despite having more Ryder Cup losses (15) than Johnson and Snedeker have had matches, Jim Furyk got the nod. It’s thought the likelyhood of matches being completed in under 5 hours swung it in his favour.
Snedeker snuck in with his a runner-up at The Barclays and a sixth-place at The Deutsche Bank.
European Team Captain Jose Maria Olazabal was unavailable for comment today. Apparently he decided to throw a massive impromptu party for some strange reason after hearing the US Team news.
