So, it’s been 16 days since the Ryder Cup in which the Europeans won again for the eighth time out of 10 events and all of the drama surrounding the U.S. team seems to never go away, or at least other media outlets believe it won’t go away. But on a more fun note, a young man who is 7-years old decided to create his roster for the 2016 Ryder Cup and the list is not too shabby. Michael Hurley, who you can follow on Twitter @mbhurley72, is the father of the kid.
Here’s his son’s roster:
– Kevin Na
– Bubba Watson
– Jordan Spieth
– Billy Horschel
– Ryan Moore
– Brandt Snedeker
– Chris Kirk
– Matt Kuchar
I like this roster for the most part and the little dude made some nice choices. However, where’s Rickie Fowler? I’d put him back in the mix. Kevin Na would have been a great choice a few years ago when he was one of the best putters in the world. I love the Gary Woodland pick. Gary is one of most consistent putters on short putts which is very key when you’re in a major tournament like the Ryder Cup. If he gets all of his shots close, then most likely his putts will fall.
I bet a ton of people will agree with the picks of Kirk and Horschel and I do too! Chris Kirk, I feel is the one guy who can give Rory Mcilroy a run for his money and one of the few guys that could make him nervous. Chris arguably has one the best swings on Tour.
Billy Horschel would bring and energy and game that Keegan couldn’t bring. Billy put up some nasty numbers in the FedEx Cup playoffs and could have easily squeaked in on the Ryder Cup team.
I’d definitely bring back Matt Kuchar and I’d most certainly get Brand Snedeker back on the team because although he’s a nice guy, he’s a very tough player. He played through an injury at the Masters and almost won the darn thing for God’s sake! He was also a part of the Medinah team that almost won it so I’d take Brandt in a heartbeat.
Finally, I’d probably get Brendan Todd on the team with is amazing putting.
Overall, the team looks great! Maybe Michael’s son needs to be a next captain? Hmmmm.
