Johnny On Davis Love Selecting Old Guys For Ryder Cup: "I'm not a big believer in doing anything historical, because historically, we suck in The Ryder Cup."
Johnny Miller today on the NBC/Golf Channel conference call providing this team room bulletin board material regarding Captain Davis Love's selection of, well it sounds like Jim Furyk, mostly.
I'm not a big believer in doing anything historical, because historically, we suck in The Ryder Cup. I like new blood. The bottom line is it shouldn't always be, you know, the ones ‑‑ I would say obviously Tiger and Stricker are really good, but besides that, you ought to just go with your gut feeling. The U.S. just has not played well except for 2008.
I don't know if you can do anything historically. People say, you have to pick people with experience; I don't want a guy on my team with losing experience. I'd rather have a guy that's fresh and says I'm going to win.
I like the young blood personally. I like it when the young guys sometimes get paired together instead of throwing them in with a veteran that's lost five straight Ryder Cups.
It's Ryder Cup time! This is why we love Johnny!
