Why did US Presidents Cup captain Jay Haas give Phil Mickelson one of his picks for the 2015 team?

Yes I get that Phil is one of the greatest players ever and he hasn't been scrapping too badly considering he hasn't hit a fairway or green in regulation since The Masters (yes check the stats) but isn't the Presidents Cup the perfect ground for Team USA to blood future Ryder Cup players? Like Brooks Koepka? Or Billy Horsehoe?

"This means a lot to me and I find that these events are where real relationships are formed with the players," said Mickelson who learned to absolutely fecking detest Tiger Woods at The Presidents Cup.

And is everyone in the USA forgetting the trouble and strife between Lefty and Captain Tom Watson at the Ryder Cup?  Jeez I would have thought a little break would have been in order!

Jay also picked his son Billy for the biennial hammering.

The International captain's picks were Sangmoon Bae and Steven Bowditch.
