Poulter, Stenson, Wallace, Pieters.I just can't see Casey getting picked - not that popular with his peers & doesn't support the ET, which is something Bjorn looks for. Rookies are less of a problem when it's a home game because the crowd's on their side, & Wallace is a fiery player who should relish matchplay.
Poulter, Casey, Stenson will be nailed on - suspect RCB will edge Pieters out for the 4th spot - 5 rookies in the team is plenty.Shame about Sergio, but history dictates that the RC is no place to find your game.
think Knox in with shout playing good o France and Ireland .should of got picked the last time but Clarke picked his mates for a holiday .but there's a few playing well .
You must pick on form above sentiment. Sergio has not been anywhere near good enough and although I'm a Stenson fan could he get the job done? I think Knox deserves a shout and I would put Wallace in as first pick. His form has been great and he seems to play his best when needed and looks to have the character needed for the RC.
People still hoping Poulter won't be picked,deluded.Walace won't be there.
I haven't seen a chart that has the qualifiers if it was only 2 picks for team.Who would be in otherwise? Wallace and RCB? TB asked for extra picks this time. Not sure if its fairer but it gives him options for sure. I don't like the captain picking 33% of the team. I liked it with top ten on the ET and 2 others. Support the tour.
I would pick Poulter as he has the experience. Even when he is not playing well in tournaments. The fact is that when the Ryder cup comes Paulter comes alive.
Ryder Cup 2018: Why Matt Wallace may have to wait for Ryder Cup call-up---Could not disagree more. His putting was simply on a different planet in the Danish Open. He's a stonewall pick IMO
I haven't yet seen anyone make a case for Pieters. It will be Poulter, Casey, Stenson if fit enough, Wallace. Garcia if Stenson not fit.
Hopefully Wallace will go on to win a Major, which is what really matters in a golfer's career, rather than assuming the backhanded epithet, as Poulter and Monty before him, of Mr Ryder Cup
I think Garcia may get a pick so he can double with Rahm, Rahms putting at times can be woeful and maybe Garcia can get the best out of him, same with Poulter and Hatton, Hattons putting last night was also woeful and his tantrums at every missed putt embarrassing, making the right partnerships is going to be key to winning the Ryder Cup, Wallace and Fitzpatrick would be my other 2 picks
Simple - do not pick on well past successes/experience. This US team will have no respect or fear of of an out of form Garcia, an injured Stenson or a chest punching Poulter. Pick on a) Form b) Great Match-player, c) Plays course well, d) Recent Ryder Cup youthful success:-WallaceCaseyKnoxPietersTough on Carbrero Bello but he blew under pressure it last night.
Please not Westwood (the Raheem Sterling of golf), or Garcia. Neither can putt!
Wallace & Poulter v Tiger & DeChambau looks like a good match to me !Casey,Bello for me
