    Ryder Cup team


    0 Not allowed!
    At 12:30 McGinley has to make public his Europe team for the Ryder Cup later this month.

    So, who should his 3 captains' picks be then ? Poulter, Westwood, Donald, Gallagher or others ? Don't generally like Poulter but even I have to admit in terms of team spirit he is good to have even if his form if off. Gallagher almost made it by right, so form is good, should he be there ?

      Gallagher is a definite for me. He's played well all year, and being a Scot he will get a lot of support at Gleneagles. I'd also pick Poulter. As you say, he's great for team spirit and is also something of a match play specialist. As for the final spot, I'm not sure. Perhaps one of the Italian contingent?

      How could you not have Poulter? He's virtually unbeatable in the Ryder Cup. Donald is pure class and unflappable so must be there too.

      Poulter as said the Ryder cup and him just seem a perfect match.
      Gallagher due to form really and the fact he deserves the spot
      Westwood just due to the fact his form is better than Donald and Donald has been struggling just to make cuts recently

      My thoughts exactly.
      I will not make any deals with you. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered. My life is my own,

      To me it is Poulter, Gallagher and one of Westwood or Donald. Donald has the better Ryder Cup record and is the better putter so it is likely to be him. I would be disappointed to see Westwood miss out though.

      I agree with this too. I'll let you know how they are looking on the practise days as I was lucky enough to get tickets in the ballot!!

      I'd agree with this but I suspect that 'politically' we may see one of our mainland European colleagues included in the final choice.
      ...Gatting fed the ball to Tony Grealish...who found Neil Smillie...who laid the ball off to Gary Howlett, his pinpoint cross was met by Gordon Smith, who eluded McQueen to send a beautiful header beyond the reach of Gary Bailey.......

      I would also go for Donald, Gallacher and Poulter. Already quite a decent contingent from the mainland in the team and those 3 are the 3 highest in the world rankings that are not in the team already. Donald is usually a very good foursomes player, Poulter turns into a golfing machine in the Ryder Cup and Gallagher has been consistently the best of the rest this year.

      Am impressed that Bjorn has got back into the team after all this time.

      As much as I like Tom Watson, his boys are in for one hell of a beating.
      Sanibona!!
