    Didn’t see much of DJ’s match, but I don’t think Poulter has ever lost a singles.

    This was lost when Europe took 8 straight matches from Friday to Saturday

    Yeah this is the real answer, but there was a glimmer of hope today if DJ and Tiger pulled it out. DJ had a lead and just choked a few away to give Poulter momentum and it was over

    Furyk's captain picks:

    Mickelson: 0-2
    Tigger: 0-4
    Dechambeau: 0-2 (pending outcome of dead rubber singles match)
    Finau: 2-1

    Combined: 2-11

    I’d question his decisions in France moreso than his picks. He had to bring Tiger, that wasn’t even a choice. It’s really hard to not being Dechambeau since he was next best from the automatic qualifiers. Phil is somewhat questionable, but I’m not sure who the next best option was. Maybe Kuchar?

    Finau was the only real wild card and he played well.

    Phil is very questionable. He's played like ass most of the summer and during the "playoffs" but somehow finished 10th in the Ryder Cup points (did he have a strong 2017?)

    Highest ranked Americans who didn't go:

    12) Xander Schauffele
    13) Matt Kucher
    14) Kevin Kisner
    16) Kyle Stanley

    Bryson was 9. Phil 10. Tigger 11.

    I would have played Bryson in four-ball not just in foursomes. His quirky outlook on the game would not be as exposed in four-ball.

    I listened to the radio feed on the way to officiate my field hockey game yesterday and the announcers were killing the Americans for making stupid match play errors and letting the Europeans get away with the few mistakes that they did make.

    Furyk messed up his pairings and which format to play his guys in, and the Phil pick imo. Xander would have been my choice.

    When you get beat this bad, it doesn’t matter who the captain is. The players just sucked. Picking Xander instead of Phil doesn’t change the result. Different teams don’t either. It’s a bad course for the US players, in front of a hostile crowd, and they played like shit. Nothing Furyk could have done with that combination.

    To a point, sure. He can put players in better spots where they are more comfortable though. That's his job and he failed at it imo.

    No. He’s actually good. Just has zero filter so people think he’s an asshole.
