And the Picks Are In...!

Well, today Freddie and Greg made public their captain's choices for the President's Cup next week month.

Freddie chose Lucas Glover and Hunter Mahan. Neither was really a surprise, as Freddie had already said that these two were the guys he would choose UNLESS someone did something special. (For example, had Scott Verplank won the Deutsche Bank this weekend.) Lucas is the reigning U.S. Open champion, of course, and Hunter has done everything but win this year. Freddie said in an earlier interview that Hunter's stats were actually better than Tiger's.

Greg chose Ryo Ishikawa and Adam Scott. These two may have been a bit unexpected.

Ryo (that's pronounced "yo") is not only an excellent choice from a "political" standpoint, but an extremely experienced player for such a young age. He's already won several times overseas, as well as being on the winning Royal Trophy team this year. (The Royal Trophy is a competition between Asia and Europe.)

Adam Scott is the more controversial pick. Scott's had a lot of well-publicized problems with his game this year, and Greg may be accused of favoritism for this choice. Personally, I thought Greg might go for Michael Sim, the Aussie who gained a battlefield promotion to the PGA Tour after getting three wins this year on the Nationwide Tour. (Don't confuse Sim with Michael Sims, another Nationwide player from Bermuda.)

The President's Cup will be played at Harding Park Golf Course in San Francisco. Golf Channel will cover the opening ceremonies and the first two days; NBC will cover the last two days.
