Default Our Ryder Cup team

as of right now, the team consists of:

Morikawa
D. Johnson
Dechambeau
Koepka
J. Thomas
Tony Finau

as of right now
Schauffele
Spieth
English
Reed
Cantlay
Berger

Are next in line for Capt's (Stricker) choices

Right behind them are:

Simpson
Scheffler
Horschel
Kokrak
Burns
Kisner
Michelson
Na
Burns

IMHO the most important thing to round out the team is pplayers that make more birdies than anyone else and then who is playing hot right now.
With that in mind, these are my 6 to fill in the team:

English (Hot and a good putter)
Spieth (playing well - a GREAT putter)
Reed (Don't like him but..v. good putter..an amazing Ryder Cup player)
Berger (Tough kid - good putter)
Burns (Hot as anyone right now...also a good putter)
Na (Possibly one of the best pressure putters ever)
The other guy I like is Cantlay!(To replace Reed.)

I reserve the right to change my mind after the results of this tourn are in.

7400 yard track...shorter hitters, like Na, could be an issue.

add your 6 if you're so inclined.

So, with the win Cantlay displaces Finau on the 6 guaranteed spots.

My capt picks are now these:

Finau
Spieth
English
Schauffele

Think Berger and Simpson will fill it out. Still wouldn't mind seeing Burns in there.

Complications.....Koepka withdraws from the tour championship with a wrist injury. Cup is in 3 weeks.

I just burned 2000 calories! That's the last time I put brownies in the oven while I nap.
My ex still misses me....but her aim is improving.
Don't worry, I've had both my shots- today, I chose Goldschlager.
Don't piss off old people- the older we get, the less life in prison is a deterrent.
I'm pretty confident my last words will be 'well crap, that didn't work'.

Unbelievable. After waiting 30+ years to get tickets to go I can honestly say it was worth the wait.

I have had many many great experiences marshaling at PGA and LPGA tournaments (12 or 13 of them), having met and talked to many pro golfers. All great experiences.

The Ryder Cup dwarfs them all.......hard to explain the level of patriotism.

Another bucket list item checked off..............
