Ryder Cup Poll: Who Will Be the Captain’s Picks for the U.S. Team?

August 30, 2016

The eight automatic qualifiers for the 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup team are set. Now the question is which four players will join them to battle the Europeans at Hazeltine? Bubba Watson, J.B. Holmes, Rickie Fowler and Olympic bronze medalist Matt Kuchar are 9-12 in the rankings, but they are not guaranteed a spot on the team.

Those final four coveted spots will be decided by captain Davis Love III. While it’s unlikely that Love’s picks will come from far down the rankings, players outside the top 12 like veteran Jim Furyk (15th), Ryan Moore (20th), and Justin Thomas (25th) are very much in the running. (Love could even pick himself if he wants to; he is currently 120th in the rankings.)

On Sept. 11, Love will name three of his four picks, while his fourth pick will be announced after the Tour Championship. Who do you think he will pick? Let us know by ranking the contenders below.
