Jim Furyk’s Ryder Cup Captain’s Picks are in…

Published

on

In what was a foregone conclusion at this point, Jim Furyk has announced Tiger Woods, Bryson DeChambeau and Phil Mickelson as 3-of-his-4 Captain’s Picks for the 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris.

Here’s Phil’s feelings — ahem, *pheelings* — on being picked…

Also, Furyk announced additional Vice Captains, probably to fill-in for the coaching duties of Tiger since he’ll be playing in the event himself. Furyk added David Duval, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar as Vice Captains, joining DLIII and Steve Stricker on the squad.

Now, onto the real question; who will be the fourth captain’s pick? It certainly seems that Tony Finau has made a great case for himself. He’s currently 4th in the FedExCup standings, finished 5th at the 2018 U.S. Open, T9 at the Open Championship, and has finished second and T4 in the first two FedExCup Playoff events, respectively.

Another popular name being thrown around is Patrick Cantlay. He won the Shriners Open all the way back in November of the 2017-2018 season, has 7 top-10s and 14 top-25s, and currently ranks 12th on the FedExCup points list.

Who would you take as the fourth pick?

    Finau.

    Winning is over-rated. So many guys can win every given week. Winning is almost a fluke. (Unless you’re Tiger or Phil.) Finau has shown talent and consistency. These bode well for a good Ryder Cup performance.

    Everyone talks about Jack’s 18 professional majors, but they almost never bring up the 20 second place finishes in majors. That guy was ALWAYS around the top of the leaderboard when it mattered. Finau has been consistently at the top, despite not having won.

    They’re all just going to Paris on holiday. Their WAGS and families love it. They know they can’t beat the Euros there.

      These are well respected players who will give these new guys a boost of confidence they will need!

    DeChambeau was a no brainer. He’s young, big, strong, long, nearly unshakable and red hot!

    Phil is always dangerous in match play and stirs a crowd. I was originally against putting him on the team but he WANTS it and that counts for a lot! He enjoys the crowds and the atmosphere as much as anyone on earth.

    Tiger is fast becoming one of the best players in the world again. Truthfully, I might take him over all but about 3 players today.

    Those 3 were the best possible picks he could make.

    Finau is also a no brainer. Just make the pick! He is one of the longest, most consistent young players in the game. He would be an extremely exciting match play player and will likely make the team for years to come. BTW, remember the twisted ankle at the Masters? He tough too.

    Great! Another Ryder Cup team featuring Woods, Mickelson & Furyk. Have these 3 ever won a Ryder Cup together? There’s too much young talent to keep doing this. Thankfully Furyk won’t be hitting any shots.

    The US is doomed. Eldrick won’t be able to resist hitting the brothels in Paris. Just as funny is the word for woman if FILLE in French. Well the US has already got its own Phil 🙂

    Maybe Phil and Tiger can cash in and launch their circus act early in Paris. How do you say pay-per-view in French?

    Finau’s gotta be the easy 4th pick…

Bryson DeChambeau’s latest message to slow play critics: “Screw all y’all haters”

Published

on

Just a few of days after vowing to step up his attempts to improve his pace of play, a video has surfaced from this Wednesday’s Pro-Am at Medinah of DeChambeau defending his pace at last week’s event and attacking his critics.

The video which you can see here at the Twitter account @DMeyer06, appears to be taken on a fans Snapchat account, and within it DeChambeau states

“I was never on the clock last week, y’all can say whatever you want, but we’re having a fu**ing good time. So screw all y’all haters”

DeChambeau’s message in the Snapchat video looks to contradict the statement he posted to his Instagram account on Monday where he said

“I’m constantly trying to improve and I will do my very best to improve my pace.”

DeChambeau is currently in action at this week’s BMW Championship where he posted a score of 1 under par in his opening round.
