Final Europe 17.5 - US 10.5

Europe had four captains picks
Combined record was 9 - 4 - 1

US had four captains picks
Combined record 2 - 10 - 0

Mickelson is my favorite current golfer - but I wouldn't pick him for Ryder Cup.
Woods is a great golfer - but I wouldn;t pick him for Ryder Cup.
DeChambeau seemed like an OK pick. But teaming him with Mickelson and Woods? Head scratcher at best.
Finau proved to be a good pick - getting the 2 wins for the captains picks.
Europe had three players with losing records - non were captains picks.
US had eight players with losing records - three were captains picks.
Could two unproven players have done any worse than the two Ryder Cup proven flops (Mickelson and Woods)?
Whoever the US captain is needs to NOT pick friends (Mickelson for Furyk) or celebrities (Woods).
Already saw an article stating the US will be heavy favorites in 2020. Not unless they decide they put together a better "team".

Thomas and Spieth got 7 points for the US - Reed got 1. Just suck it up and play golf.

US will be favorites, and more talented, and will play a course that is set up for their team. The Euros are not bomb and wedge players like our guys are, therefore they set the course up with wicked high rough and tight landing areas for the bombers. US golf is not target golf like it is in Europe.

BTW the lady Brooks hit is now blind in one eye.
