There really isn’t any surprises with these three picks.
Tiger Woods – Woods has proven he can still compete on the PGA Tour and after finishing second at the PGA Championship it was more than clear that he would be a pick. Tiger has also been with the team as a vice captain and has learned a bit about the strategy of the event over the last couple of years.

Phil Mickelson – Lefty hadn’t been playing that well until the FedExCup started, but he’s carded several low rounds since. He’s also been on the past 11 Ryder Cup teams and is a huge asset to have out there playing with some of these younger guys.

Bryson DeChambeau – This guy has shown up the past two weeks. He won The Northern Trust and Dell Technologies Championship. He’s clearly earned himself a spot on this team with three wins this season and also proven me wrong.
Anyways, I think Phil is ready to represent!
