Since the user Nosferatu on twitter is giving us such a clear representation of the teams, why not keeping track of the evolution of the 2 teams.
Here is the current situation with Bubba currently not making the team on point but being very close!

Imho this will be a great Ryder Cup wince the 2 team will be very close!

Nice idea for a thread and will be interesting to see how things evolve ! As a Euro (well a Brit :(  ) I like the top 8 and would probably layer in Stenson, Noren and Pieters as Captain's picks. Not too fussed about Casey and would be great to see Alex Levy in there to get the locals going

I agree with most of what you have said, Casey has to be a serious consideration though as his form has been so good and he is a match play specialist. Levy is some player but he is a bit hot and cold but still a good shout. Rafa CB should be close or get in which is a good thing. We had too many rookies last time (and just got out played), with Fleetwood, Rahm and Hatton looking in good shape to make the team I'm not sure having another rookie is what we need.

Disagree we had a clown as a captain and we had a washed out Lee Westwood.

Anybody who managed a worse record as Captain then Faldo deserves to be hung out to dry. Clarke's choices were baffling at times to say the least.

Bit harsh on DC, but yes some of the pairings were a bit strange. You can't fault Westwood his record is up there with the best. We were out played though.

That Westy missed putt from 3ft to halve the match is still in my nightmares...

Great thread! Looking forward to this year, hoping someone like Cantlay or Moore can play their way in. I liked how Moore played at Hazeltine

I'd like to see Joost make the team, even a wild card. I like his battling qualities. Don't think he'd be a bad pick as a wild card if he didn't make it on his own merit.

You may notice Ted Potter Jr. has his name in parentheses. He was off the tour for two years and is currently not a member of the PGA of America and ineligible to be on the Ryder Cup team. Once he gets that status back, his Ryder Cup points (retroactive ones as well) will become official and he can join the team.

swing is irrelevant, score is everything

USA certainly has a strong team, that can't be argued.

Saying that, I am entirely comfortable with our line up which could/should include:

Rory
Rose
Stenson
Sergio
Rahm
Fleetwood
Casey
Noren
Fitzpatrick

And probably Pieters, Rafa CB etc.

We are going to have a pretty strong team as well!

Admittedly it has been a long time since I was well versed in the PGA of America republic, but Potter is an exempt tour player, how is he not A-3?  I remember seeing guys that had been off the tour classified as A-3 for years. Jodie Mudd was A-3 in the Ky section as late as 2004 and he was raising horses. Do you happen to know why he isnít A-3?

Would be interesting to see if Harman stays up there and so is Woodland for the US team. Reed will be in there unless he craps so bad between now and then

Rory and Stenson will not be left out from Europe, the other 2 will be interesting to see

Would be nice to see Harman and Woodland bumped off the auto-selection. Give me the rest of the 6, Phil, Reed, Cantlay, Tiger, and whoever is playing best at the time for the last two and you got a squad.

If everything falls into place it could be the strongest European team for quite a few years

I think the US team will look very different from the above, maybe 5 of that 8?

I love the potential of the US roster, but how did it become some forgone conclusion that the US is the favorite? I know we have a lot of strong youth on the team and of course the holy task force, but the European team is going to be stacked as well. Rahm, Fleetwood and Noren (presumably) will be very tough additions. To me on a neutral field, it's a toss up at best.

If the European team looks something close to below, and playing on home soil, they would be a match for any US team, in fact if the US also got all the players they want, it could be one of the best Ryder cups ever

I love the potential of the US roster, but how did it become some forgone conclusion that the US is the favorite? I know we have a lot of strong youth on the team and of course the holy task force, but the European team is going to be stacked as well. Rahm, Fleetwood and Noren (presumably) will be very tough additions. To me on a neutral field, it's a toss up at best.

At the end of the 2017 US Team was miles ahead (when Shipnuck wrote that troll article), now it's more even

If the European team looks something close to below, and playing on home soil, they would be a match for any US team, in fact if the US also got all the players they want, it could be one of the best Ryder cups ever

Mcilroy
Rose
Stenson
Rahm
Garcia
Noren
Fleetwood
Bello
Pieters
Hatton
Casey
Fisher

With a team like that even Chandler would't be able to put Westy in the team!

GO TEAM USA.

We need to do something to get our mojo back.  I think the problem is lack of grit.  Euros just seem more gritty and prideful than the US players which is painful as someone who is very proud to be a US citizen.

I don't know what it is about Fischer, maybe he looks too much like a typical skinny-fat office worker, but I'd much rather one of the Irishmen in his place.
Hopefully Levy is either near enough the top or nowhere near it, to avoid any pick a Frenchman controversy.

With GMac's success on that course, be good to see him have a good season too and maybe be in with a shout.
