    Haha, that’s a joke? Pretty sick one.
    See if he would dare say that to Bryson, Brooks or Reed.
    But a Chilean ranked number 29, sure lets have some fun .

      Yeah, I’m with you…..not very nice, that being said, Bryson can’t get around nine holes in that kinda time!

    I do think the man who has his tour championship time record beaten by Neimann deserves a spot on the team.

    Na is so entertaining. Such a grinder. Crazy good putter. He would be a pest for the euros. I got to spend a round with him once. I hope he gets a spot.

    Reed deserves his spot as well. He did enough at East Lake. It’s really a no brainer.

    Berger or English is the tough one now for me. English has had a good season but Bergs made a statement finishing strong yesterday, he has a lot of buddies on the team, and seems to have that match play feel more than than Harris.

      I’m with you an Na — one of the U.S. downfalls in Ryder Cup play is the lack of crucial putts, and that was the downfall of the US women in the Solheim……the men should take heed — better beware — just because you’re strong on paper doesn’t mean a win…..outside the locks — Reed, Na and Berger sound like they could be the ones come Wednesday morning.

        I think the US Ryder cup team should know better than anyone by now that paper don’t matter.
