Yes! I love the comebackers here. I am with you, and that is why they are all likely on the bubble as Captain Picks. only a few guys can lock up enough points to qualify on merit.
That said - I’m going to note the greatest individual winner of all time.
Cats record in Ryder Cups as a player:
13-17-3 (4-1-2 as a singles and under .500 as a team player). - I liken this to the commentary we’ve heard about the circus it is to play in his presence with crowds, etc. Even at the Ryder Cup, this is amplified.
US record in Ryder Cups when TW is playing on team: 1-6
US record in Ryder Cups when TW is not playing since he came on tour: 2-1 (2-0 home, 0-1 away)
US record in Team Comps when TW is a Vice Captain (2-0)
Just saying, numbers are numbers. Also, many of us were all about that untapped potential pre-16 since the old guard had failed to win in any consistent or impressive manner. Which is why I note adding guys that will be on these teams for the next decade plus to the mix. The strength of the team should auto-qualify (DJ, JT, Speith, Fowler, Koepka)
pls note this is not hostile aggression against TW, feline lovers, or the US chances; this is just a debate in a forum
