The Ryder Cup Captain’s Picks were selected on Tuesday. Both U.S. and European Ryder Cup squads are officially set. Both U.S. captain Tom Watson and Euro captain Paul McGinley made their final three choices and now we will be looking forward to another exciting Ryder Cup.

The three U.S. Picks were:

So now here is the full roster for your 2014 Ryder Cup teams.

Team USA:

Justin Rose
Lee Westwood
Stephen Gallacher
Ian Poulter
Des Smyth – Vice Captain
Sam Torrance – Vice Captain

So there you have it! Your 2014 squads! Lee Westwood might have been the biggest surprise to some judging by the Facebook comments I saw. A lot of fans probably thought Luke Donald deserved the pick but what Lee brings is that extra experience and power off the tee.

I had four out of the six picks right (Yay! Mini win!). I had Hunter Mahan, Keegan, and Brendon Todd.

For the Euro squad, I had Ian Poulter, Stephen Gallacher and Luke Donald. My reasons for choosing Brendon and Luke is because of their incredible putting ability.
