Ryder Cup 2016

Postby txlonghorn47 on Mon Aug 29, 2016 8:00 am

Top 8 officially set yesterday.

DJ
Spieth
Phil
Jimmy Walker
Brooks Koepka
Sneds
Zach Johnson
Patrick Reed

I really like the Top 8 here. Some good young blood in there. I said at the last one that we needed to hope guys like Furyk, Bubba, and Bradley didn't qualify. So far so good, those guys just aren't cut out for this type of play IMO. Hopefully DL3 keeps those guys out with his captain picks. If it's me I'm taking Fowler, Kuchar, Billy Ho, and Holmes. We'll see who gets hot in August though. Billy Ho has had a very rough year, but he strikes me as a guy who has the type fire you need for this. I could be talked into putting Bubba on there over him, and I think DL3 will. I just think Bubba doesn't care about this thing and isn't a great partner in the team matches.

I would take Daniel Berger or Justin Thomas over Bubba or Furyk.

Yeah I could see that. I don't get Justin Thomas really. He doesn't really jump off the page at you, but he's highly ranked. He's boys with Fowler and Speith though so maybe he has that same fire they do.

Yeah he had that controversy earlier this year when he said he would rather win the Ryder Cup than a major.

I think we can all agree here that the absolute best news is that Hunter Mahan has no shot at being on the team.

I'd take Daniel Berger's girlfriend over all of them. Google it.

Very long read, but very interesting. Especially found the Speith stuff interesting, that's what Mak has been saying for a few years......

DL3 adds Fowler, Holmes, and Kuchar. Pretty much as expected. Last man in is Sept 25th I believe. Interested to see who he takes there.

Looking at the stats I guess he is the hot hand but I've always thought of him as a mega spare

Outside of Spieth and Reed I don't know who the obvious choices for pairs tomorrow are.

I think I'd go
Spieth and Reed
DJ and Koepka
Rickie and Phil
Jimmy Walker and having a hard time between Sneds or ZJ

I like those. Would probably go with ZJ.

I really hope they didn't screw the pooch with those afternoon matches.

Spieth and Reed with a total choke job this AM. May have turned the whole event.

Probably comes down to the European rookies and how they handle it tomorrow.

I'm puting Spieth out against Rory. Spieth played like garbage today, so you either just conceded the point to Europes best player, or Spieth puts it together. Win win.

I have to admit I am surprised. Didn't think they had the mettle, but they had it and more.

Awesome.
