Decision day for Ryder Cup captain Love

NEW YORK (AP) - Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III was looking for a hot hand when picking four players to fill out his American team. Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker delivered two performances that were very warm.

They find out Tuesday whether it was enough for Love to pick them.

Three weeks after eight players qualified for the team, Love adds four picks during a news conference Tuesday morning in New York. Jim Furyk, who has earned his way onto every Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup team since 1997, and Steve Stricker were expected to be chosen.

The tricky part was figuring out who would get the last two spots.

Snedeker finished second at The Barclays and sixth at the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday, while Johnson tied for third at The Barclays and for fourth in Boston.
