Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love III filled three of the four remaining spots on the team Monday, naming Ricky Fowler, Matt Kuchar and J.B. Holmes. The fourth and final team member will be named after the Tournament Championship September 22-25, 2016.
A poor showing at Crooked Stick did not hurt Fowler (tied for 59th) while Kuchar and Holmes tied for fourth behind winner Dustin Johnson in Carmel, Indiana. Love admitted that he contemplated his picks while watching the Final Round on Sunday, so the placing of two of the three choices appear to be validation of their selection. Conversely, Love apparently was able to chalk Fowler’s week off as an aberration.
The consensus favorite to fill the last spot on the team is Bubba Watson, but Love gave no indication of his pick in two weeks.
