Furyk's Fourth Pick

Just a short post today. I wasn't able to watch Furyk's announcement -- although that wasn't a big deal, since I already knew them. ;-) But I wanted to take a moment to look at what he said about the final pick he'll make next week.

US Captain Jim Furyk

Furyk gave us two big pieces of info at his new conference.
  • He is still considering -- at least -- the players down to 15 on the Ryder Cup points list. Since DeChambeau, Phil and Tiger were 9,10 and 11, that means Xander Schauffele (12), Matt Kuchar (13), Kevin Kisner (14) and Tony Finau (15) were still in the running...
  • Except that Kuchar is now a Vice Captain.
Whoever else he may be considering, that means there are three main candidates left -- the three I listed in my Sunday post. Most folks (me included, as I wrote Sunday) think Finau is the most likely.

Of course, this simply means that Jim Furyk's job is infinitely easier (thus far) than Thomas Bjorn's will be today.

Okay, Thomas -- show us what you got!
