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’s gotta get it!

    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.

    Who’s going to listen to David Duval, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar as captains? no-one.’

      Well you enjoy watching the Vice Captains during the Ryder Cup coverage. Let’ us know what grade you give each one of them.

      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 🙂

    Finau is a birdie machine!

    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…

????????Looking for opinions ???????? – – *Quick statement: I don’t give a $hit about pro athletes being allowed or not allowed to take certain supplements. Also think @philmickelson is the man* – – But it seems most of the internet doctors think this is Phil taking CBD. I recently started taking CBD at night to try and aid inflammation and a better nights sleep. Let me tell you, within 30 minutes I am out like a brick ????. I have noticed much better sleep and do generally feel better when waking up. – – SO my question is this, if it is in fact CBD-is there different kinds that I am missing out on for maybe energy/focus? If I took CBD while golfing, I would be sleeping in the cart. Educate me! ???? ???? – – – – – – – – – – – – #cbd #cbdoil #health #wellness #supplements #golf #golfing #golfislife #golfclub #golflife #views #golfgram #instagolf #golfphotos #playorperish #seamusgolf #golfphotography #golfswing #golfgame #fit #fitness #golfwrx #pure #outdoors #sendit #loveofthegame #themasters #tigerwoods #goat

Fun times on a collab with our good friends at Dunning Golf. We combined golfs most technical fabric curated by Dunning, with some good old fashioned leather(Worlds oldest natural technical material). . Our teams took a couple hours to whip these prototypes together and are stoked on the outcome! Keep in mind, these won’t be going into production. These are a teaser of what is coming next!! This was more of a “Rev the engine” test project. . Dunning X Dormie has crafted a serious line of covers and alignment stick covers that will be combined with sick alignment sticks from Bubba Whips! This player package is still under wraps and will be released soon. For now you’ll have to imagine how PURE this next collection will be. Think PURE…TOUR PURE.???????????????? . . #pga #pgatour #collaboration #unitedstates #handmade #halifax #anaheim #gq #instagolf #golfdigest #madeincanada #dunninggolf #mygolfspy #usa #golf #golfdigest #golfwrx #golfchannel #bestcovers #clean #forbes#dunning#bubbawhips

“Pure Land O’ Lakes buttery goodness” I like it.

View this post on Instagram

It only took a couple of rounds to decide – these @benhogangolf irons are staying in the bag! Pure Land O’ Lakes buttery goodness… ???? Of course that means they have to get the full treatment – gloss black paint fill, some @bbandfco flair, and the wedges have to match… so @vokeywedges SM7’s complete the deal. ???? I was so proud that my #witb had finally stayed the same for another season… thanks again @thpgolf for changing that!!! I’ll be doing a substantial update to the WITB blog post soon! . . . . . . #notrunofthemill #golf #?? #golfswag #golfaddict #golflifestyle #handmade #handcrafted #golfishard #liveunderpar #lovegolf #golfporn #golfislife #instagolf #instagood #dropbombs #whyilovethisgame #birdiebomb #libertyballmarkers #minimalistgolf #lessthan14 #thehackersparadise #golfwrx #mygolfspy #pga
