Default Sutton picks Haas and Cink??

I am reading his captains picks were Haas and Cink.

Haas was a given as the two are buddies and he has played solidly in the majors.

Stewart Cink is consistent and has made some points in the Buick, International and PGA to impress Sutton.

Interesting of the only guys 8-14- Cink is the only one to win- I think Sutton really wanted winners on his team.

I feel like Verplank should be on there and I think maybe Leonard is getting ready to play his best golf of his career in the upcoming months.

Tough decision but I hope that Cink doesnt haunt us.

Would have taken Verplank over Cink. Would not have taken Leonard though.

Guy has never won a Ryder Cup match and do not like the way he has played in the final round of contending majors.

There is a perception out there that he is a "clutch player" but its perception and not reality. Was great in his come from behind British Open win. And of course that one putt at the Ryder Cup (a match he only tied). But has blown up more often than not. Agree he is playing much better now than the past few years.

I can see why he didnt do it, but would have given serious thought to naming Hamilton. Guy would be tough as nails in match play

I think sutton's picks are mistakes, but as I'll be cheering on the Europeans, I'm happy with them. I think he'd have been better off with Leonard & Verplank or even Hamilton.

Fear is a key element of Ryder Cup and the Europeans fear Leonard and the type of role he can get on - secondly he's hitting it straighter than anyone - excellent for foursomes. Verplank just gives of the impression that he never quits - the sort of person you want in a team game. hamilton showed he can handle the extremest of pressure situations plus he's a hell of a good player.

Haas & Cink - Well Haas could easily bottle it on the big occassion - i doubt whether he'll play more than 2/3 matches and Cink doesn't exactly intimidate or shout out quality player whereas Leonard does.

I don't like the way the Europeans are picking their team though and as the standings are at the moment Langer will have to choose 2 from Rose, Monty, Cejka, Donald, Jacobsen, Bjorn & Olazabal. Monty is a lock so 1 from the rest. Hopefully a couple fo these can play themselves on to the team as i don't like the look of the team at present.

I don't think his picks are as bad as Wadkins pick of Curtis Strange, but I think valueman is spot on.

Leonard is hitting the ball better and straighter, the problem is he doesn't putt like he used to.

Hamilton would have love to seen him get the nod but maybe the Oakland Hills may not be his cup of tea.

The guy we aren't going to be able to hide is Funk.

I just don't understand not picking Verplank.

I actually have more confidence in Funk then a few of the guys on the team.

Like his spirit.

Cink worries me the most.

Hamilton should have been an automatic selection! I just don't get it.

If he was a 21 year old rookie and had won 2 tournaments this year including the British Open, he would have been 1-99 to be on the team. How many other Americans who aren't already on the team would have played the way Hamilton did under the most intense pressure imaginable during the last day at the British? Correct answer.......NONE! Not even the majority of the guys on the team wouldn't have melted under the pressure. After watching the debacle during the final round of the PGA, he actually should have became a cinch to be selected.

Woods, Mickelson, and Hamilton would be my top 3 American players on the team.

I would love to see Hamilton and Love tied for the lead going into the final round of a major. Love would be favored and Hamilton should be at least -150.

I don't disagree with you.

Sutton wanted winners and he passed on multiple winner Hamilton to pick Haas. Haas is a good selection though, his solid play allows him to be a solid player in foursomes. I can see Haas and Tiger being our number 1 team.

DiMarco worries me too.

I respect the guy a ton, and think he is the biggest overachiever on the tour. But can see him blowing up under the pressure. His swing is very very shaky at times.

Easy for a Brit to say but I would have taken a chance on Hamilton, indeed I think to say 'take a chance' insults the guy.

His calmness at Troon on that final day just blew me away. He unfailingly acknowledged the applause of the galleries, even when you'd have thought nothing of it if he hadn't. That's when I knew he was unfazed by the occasion.

He'd scare me far more than Cink and so would Leonard. He didn't choke Sunday, he was just three feet away from winning a major in style.

The really smart play for Sutton, though, would have been to rush through Vijay Singh's US citizenship application overnight...

Here's to a great match next month. May Sam Ryder have no cause to turn in his grave.
