Stupid question, I know.
Remember it's at Royal Melbourne this year. But more importantly, check out where Keegan Bradley, two-time winner in 2011, sits on the list and who is three spots ahead of him. Wacky world.
****Doug Ferguson makes the case for Bradley as an automatic captain's pick if he doesn't make it on points, and also makes a strong case that Fred Couples would be nuts to select Tiger Woods.
Does Couples really have any other choice but to take Bradley?
The standings are based on PGA Tour earnings dating to the 2009 Barclays, with double the money for the current year. Woods, who earned 53 percent of his points in the four FedEx Cup playoff events at the end of 2009, is No. 28 and likely to fall even farther down the list. The lowest-ranked American ever chosen was Paul Azinger, who was No. 24 in 2000.
Bradley’s stunning turnaround Sunday at Atlanta Athletic Club - three birdies over his last six holes to go from a five-shot deficit with three holes left to a playoff victory in the final major of the year - illustrate just how much golf has changed.
