Assuming none of those mentioned win next week:

Should: Dufner (they've made it crystal clear to everyone, Bubba included, that they don't want him as a team-mate). Dufdaddy won't care, plus he's been there, done that, never let anyone down.

Will: Whoever finishes higher of Berger & Thomas.

Again an ambiguous question. Will or should?

Will: the hotter rookie after TC, unless Bubba wins it
Should: Moore

As long as JT doesn't have a stinker or another runner wins it then the place goes to JT. Has kwini has pointed out DL3 has a hard on for JT.

My understanding was that Furyk was also involved in this Hazeltine trip, in a playing as well as a VC'ing capacity.

Can’t understand why they didn’t settle the Furyk issue long ago, especially when he didn’t qualify for further FEC participation. He’s already VC and whatever leadership or experience (god or bad) he can provide, he already provides by being a VC. One thing is shamming the media and the public, another thing is Jim himself. He still believes he’s in the mix, and that’s also what Love has told him, and why shouldn’t you believe him/them. But who on earth thinks he really has a chance of getting picked?

TBH, I think this wild card process has been bit of a circus. The idea with the Task Force is good enough, and of course it doesn’t help that there’s no ‘hot player’ at the moment, but the implementation has been hilarious. In fact all the hooh hah surrounding the US wild card process may ultimately be what decides the RC to the European advantage due to the additional extra pressure it puts on the US team.

Agree pedro; McGinley was saying pretty much that on GC yesterday.

Not sure you need uncertainty surrounding your team at this stage.

One thing I have to say about the Hazeltine 'tryout'. If players in the mix (JT, Bubba, Berger, maybe Moore even if he didn't go) have been told to go to East Lake and justify a pick (tryout part II), I think it would be OK to pick the one who could withstand that deliberatedly imposed extra pressure and actually post a good result. If you fold at East Lake because you know you're in a 'tryout' then you're clearly not a fit for the RC.

God is angry with Super and so...

Furyk gets picked, nails a 5-0-0 weekend and holes the winning putt on the 18th in the final match for a half point win by the US.

Super takes the cloth and becomes Bubba's God fearing caddy

I see Bubba has texted LoveIII saying he wants to be a Vice Captain if he's not the Horschel pick.
Can't imagine how the response went.
Haven't we quoted the Beyond the Fringe-ism from Peter Cook to Jonathan Miller before? Paraphrasing it's:
"Au revoir Captain Love."
"No Bubba, It's Goodbye!"!


Meanwhile, will LoveIII never learn?
"This is the best golf team, maybe, ever assembled."

Sounds all a bit Raymond Floyd 'The twelve greatest players in the world'-like and remember how that turned out in 1989.
Talking about Queen's work, super, has Love!!! never listened to Under Pressure? That's all he's putting on his team.

Is Davis the Mullet Love on crack?
"Woods will intimidate people"

How exactly? He hasn't exactly intimidated anyone with his "dazzling" Ryder Cup record in 5 of his 6 appearances, so how is standing on the sidelines in his corrective shoes going to put off the Europeans?

"look lads, it's alesser red breasted has-been" More likely to put his team off with his presence seeing as none of them were able to play with him effectively.

Based on the five minutes of the Tour Championship I've seen Ryan Moore should be the pick. He stayed alive and made Rory have to make his putt to win.

Sorry LoveIII, you can't have Rory . . . . . . . .

Suppose we have to wait to know who his best of the rest is.

Over to you TRUSSMAN . . . . . .

Agree, Moore should be a pick: An American who almost didn't lose a matchplay situation to a European.

And he made him work very hard over those four holes for it.

"Hopefully Davis calls him (Bubba) because Colin never called me," said Paul Casey, spitting out grapes as sour now as they were in 2010.

Ryan Moore it is, relegated to the back pages following Arnie's death.

Can't help feeling that Palmer's passing will be at least as much a force at Hazeltine as Seve's death was for Europe.

Saw some people tweeting about how some members of the US team were near the bottom of the TC leaderboard, but how many of the Euro team even made it to the TC?

It does seem a bit odd that the world number 7, double Major winner and 4th ranked American couldn't walk into the team but just had a glance at his RC record. Sheesh, it's quite frankly awful...yes worse than even Woods Super!!).

On the European side we can afford to leave out the 6th, 7th & 8th ranked Europeans (owgr ranked 13, 19 & 29th respectively).

Bubba said earlier last week that he wanted to be a Love VC if he didn't get picked.
Will that wish be granted? Or will he have a grudge to hold as long as Casey's??

Maybe Casey should just shut his pie hole, take up ET membership and play his way on to the team. Nobody 'deserves' a spot. It's not a testimonial match.

In a newly released statement Phil Mickelson criticises the death of Palmer: "It is bad timing to die just before the Ryder Cup. Just plain bad. You see, this is the difference bewteen the Europeans and us. Their heroes would die early enough for them to have their names and silhouettes printed on their gear. Now we have to settle with cheap stickers. We just never learn it."

Exactly, Casey is talking like an American these days, he should just get behind the team like when Donald missed out last time. I even heard Casey say "kick ass" on radio this morning. Plank.

Talking about Rory and exhibitions, wonder if he and Wozza exchanged congratulatory messages after their respective wins yesterday, albeit 0000's of miles apart? Good for both of them.

As for Casey, whose golf I've always admired, it's still all about Paul, no change there.

Casey would have been an asset this week but you are spot on Pedro, all he had to do was take up his ET membership and play a few events over here. Clearly he was huffed when Monty didn't pick him. Since then he's had injuries to overcome which he clearly now has. Unfortunately the disappointment from 6 years ago seems to have continued to fester.

Fortunately the Task Force is reassembling to deal with the seven days of mourning.
Imagine that when Christy O'C died they just offered free beer in Galway for a week.

Yes, in the future one day of mourning will be saved till after the Ryder Cup.

EDIT: That day was already reserved for mourning.

Rory has made claims that the 10 Million didn't mean that much to him in the past. But he sure did look excited after he holed that shot on the 70th hole, and the putt on the 4th playoff hole.

Easy to express apathy when you are not in contention.

Given that McIlroy has wealth beyond the dreams of avarice I would suspect it's getting back in the winning groove that really matters.

When the likes of Djokovic and Federer win tournaments they are still delighted but have more money than they could spend. It's not about the money for these guys. They don't need to play for money.

I know, but don't you think he's thrilled that his comeback looks more real than just a flash in the pan? His win the other week gives him even less reason to have a bricker about his 10 million.
It's probably more vindication that he can actually putt, that he can play consistently and is looking along with DJ to be the best player in the world at present.

You can spin it any way that makes you think that you are right, but he was more animated than he was at D-Bank.

I think there are 10 Million reasons why.

It's not only the TC title GPB, it's the FEC title - a year long event everybdy talks about. People don't talk about who won the DB or the TC, but who won the FEC.
