PGA News: Rickie Fowler and Tiger Woods Are Among Captains Picks For Ryder Cup Team

Corey Pavin made the announcement Tuesday morning.

Pavin announced that Woods, Fowler, Zach Johnson, and Stewart Cink would be the four captains picks to join the Ryder Cup Team. The eight Americans who qualified after the PGA Championship were Phil Mickelson, Hunter Mahan, Steve Stricker, Jim Furyk, Matt Kuchar, Bubba Watson, Dustin Johnson and Jeff Overton.

Woods will be appearing in his 6th Ryder Cup.

Fowler is the first PGA Tour rookie to make the U.S. team. While the former Oklahoma State star has three runner-up finishes in his 11 months as a pro, he is the first American captain’s pick to have never won.
