I can't imagine this was the dilemma Tom Watson envisioned he'd have when he signed up to be the USA Ryder Cup Captain. But here goes....
The options listed below for the three captain's picks are in order from the final Ryder Cup points list, not the faux list incorporating the post-PGA Championship events (if the PGA of America feels it's worthwhile to keep making a list after the final list, maybe it's time to have the points decided at the last possible event ala Team Europe?).
The Deutsche Bank Championship win by Chris Kirk certainly would seem to vault him onto the team based on season points and late form. Kirk, however, says he has plans to be watching the Tennessee-Georgia game that weekend and didn't want to make the team as a pick, reported Peter May. Here's guessing he'll have a change of heart.
Captain Tom announces his team Tuesday at 6 pm ET from New York City.
