I’m not the Ryder Cup captain, but that doesn’t keep me from giving Tom Watson a heads up on who should be on his 2014 Ryder Cup2014 ryder Cu team should be. It may be too early to say there is a wholesale changing of the guard for US pro golfers, but if not this year then it’s going to happen in the next two.
Looking at the early season here’s who makes the team:
Jimmy Walker, Jordan Spieth, Harris English, Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, Web Simpson, Ryan Moore, Zach Johnson, Patrick Reed and Rickie Fowler.
Surprise, surprise no Tiger or Phil. I know it’s early and they haven’t played much, but so far they haven’t inspired much confidence. I’ll leave it to Tom if he wants to add them as a Captain’s Picks. As for me, I think I’d pick Boo Weekley as long as he’s healthy. He’s the much needed missing link for adding a healthy dose of enthusiasm and pure fun. The Europeans have proven time and time again it’s not just about having the golfers with the highest world rankings. That leaves just a single spot for one of the old guys on my team!
