I do not see a scenario where Brooks or any other LIV golfer makes the team as a captain's pick.

They haven’t won on foreign soil since 1993 and Brooks was on the 2018 team that got waxed in Paris.  Brooks was 2-2 on the ‘21 Ryder Cup team that won 19-9.

Brooks isn’t exactly team friendly having feuded with Bryson and DJ in the past as well.  I think they’ll be fine without his leadership

In keeping with the spirit of the Ryder Cup that makes it one of the best sporting events in the world, I think each captain should get to name one player to the other side's roster. The player has to be healthy, and cannot be ranked lower than the lowest ranked player already selected.

I'm kidding, of course. But it would be interesting.

I’d take Theegala over Fowler in a heartbeat but not necessarily Clark.  Clark has been golfing well this year.

I put Fowler on my list because of his relationship with the players on the team

You don’t think that Brooks leadership in a team league like LIV is paramount? Interesting.

You convinced me.  His team finishing 5th at a LIV event should make him a shoo in.

Can’t believe I missed Hovland.

I don’t think it’s going to be as lopsided as predicted during the LIV exodus of the Euro stars.

morikawa, cantalay, english  get back to playing like they can, we could be tough.

    i love spieth, but he has been leaking oil.  just when he shows signs of putting in some consistent golf and he we go moments, his 3rd person relationship kicks in, his driver let's him down putting pressure on himself to make a shot.  then he presses on the green

  show some team comaraderie like the europeans

Seamus Power probably makes the European team.

we can't afford to leave a talent such as brooks off the team at this moment.  for those who have trouble with the LIV thingy, hold your noses.  the ryder cup is too important to allow emotions to get in the way.  swallow hard and give america it's best chance with it's best lineup

I still think Koepka needs to play his way on.   The LIV defectors were told what would happen to their Ryder Cup careers.  They took the money.   Actions have consequences.

Why are you against one of the best Americans? Very unpatriotic, sad.
