Granted, this is the problem you want to have as a Ryer Cup captain. But after Thomas Pieters auditioned in front of Captain Clarke the first two rounds at the Made In Denmark, the Belgian surged to victory. Yes, it's a week after the 2016 points cut-off, but Pieters has not gone 4th-2nd-win in his last three starts, including a near-medal in the Olympic Games.
Here is the points list after the cut off.
Earlier this week you all voted Kaymer as your overwhelming favorite.
But given Soren Kjeldsen's consistent play, I'm struggling to see how Kaymer rates above the Dutch hope either.
Pieters is playing as well as anyone on the planet, has won the NCAA individual title while playing for Illinois, and should be a lock despite that the rookie status Captain Clarke doesn't like.
The other rookie in the mix, Russell Knox, may lose out despite a world No. 20 ranking and winning in Hartford just a few weeks ago.
Still here are the five who are most likely at the top of Clarke's list as he prepares to announce his three picks Tuesday. Who do you like?
