Ryder Cup: United States team

RSS

Team USA


KeeganBradley

Keegan Bradley

Appearance: Rookie
Overall record: N/A
Foursomes record: N/A
Fourball record: N/A
Singles record: N/A

Skinny: This is his first time in team competition, but the long hitter may form a comfortable – and potentially successful – team with Phil Mickelson, a frequent practice-round partner.

 

Jason Dufner

Jason Dufner

Appearance: Rookie
Overall record: N/A
Foursomes record: N/A
Fourball record: N/A
Singles record: N/A

Skinny: Not much seems to faze the laconic 35-year-old, who already has won twice this season, and his steady play should be ideal for fourballs.


Jim Furyk

Jim Furyk

Appearance: Eighth
Overall record: 8-15-4
Foursomes record: 3-5-2
Fourball record: 1-8-1
Singles record: 4-2-1

Skinny: Perhaps no American player will face as much scrutiny as Furyk, who is the only team member yet to record a victory this season. Don't be surprised if he's skipped in a few sessions.


Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson

Appearance: Second
Overall record: 1-3-0
Foursomes record: 0-1-0
Fourball record: 0-2-0
Singles record: 1-0-0

Skinny: Players will be lining up to play with the big-hitting Johnson, despite his sub-par record in team competition. Medinah, a big ballpark, sets up well for him.


Zach Johnson

Zach Johnson

Appearance: Third
Overall record: 3-3-1
Foursomes record: 1-2-1
Fourball record: 1-0-0
Singles record: 1-1-0

Skinny: As steady and gritty as they come, but Johnson will need to find a new Ryder Cup partner; his 2010 teammate Hunter Mahan didn't qualify.


Matt Kuchar

Matt Kuchar

Appearance: Second
Overall record: 1-1-2
Foursomes record: 0-1-0
Fourball record: 0-0-2
Singles record: 0-1-0

Skinny: An ideal player in the alternate-shot format, for he's seemingly always in play. He needs to connect early with a partner, though – perhaps Zach Johnson?


Phil Mickelson

Phil Mickelson

Appearance: Ninth
Overall record: 11-17-6
Foursomes record: 2-5-4
Fourball record: 5-8-2
Singles record: 4-4

Skinny: Went 3-0 in the team portion of the 2011 Presidents Cup. His play is starting to heat up too, after a pair of good performances in the FedEx Cup.


Webb Simpson

Webb Simpson

Appearance: Rookie
Overall record: N/A
Foursomes record: N/A
Fourball record: N/A
Singles record: N/A

Skinny: Formed a good partnership with fellow devout Christian Bubba Watson at the 2011 Presidents Cup, combining to go 3-1. Another good putter on a team full of them.


Brandt Snedeker

Brandt Snedeker

Appearance: Rookie
Overall record: N/A
Foursomes record: N/A
Fourball record: N/A
Singles record: N/A

Skinny: The way Snedeker rolls the rock, he figures to be a crucial part of the U.S.'s plans in the team competition.


Steve Stricker

Steve Stricker

Appearance: Third
Overall record: 3-3-1
Foursomes record: 1-1-0
Fourball record: 1-1-0
Singles record: 1-1-0

Skinny: A great putter and, perhaps more important, a great partner for Woods, with whom he's gone 6-2 when paired in team competitions.


Bubba Watson

Bubba Watson

Appearance: Second
Overall record: 1-3-0
Foursomes record: 0-1-0
Fourball record: 1-1-0
Singles record: 0-1-0

Skinny: His prodigious length should give him an advantage at Medinah. Has shown potential with Simpson as a partner, too.


Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods

Appearance: Seventh
Overall record: 13-14-2
Foursomes record: 4-7-1
Fourball record: 5-6-0
Singles record: 4-1

Skinny: The U.S. team's best player, Woods seems to have been reinvigorated since partnering with Stricker. That may help erase what remains a head-scratching record in team competition.


Davis Love III

Captain Davis Love III

Appearance: Six
Overall record: 9-12-5
Foursomes record: 3-5-1
Fourball record: 3-6-2
Singles record: 3-1-2

Skinny: His four wild-card selections illustrate what kind of captain he'll be: safe and strong. Expect few surprises and a heavy reliance on his assistants.
