“He’s a quirky personality, which might not gel well with a team of veterans who have played together for years. He’s also emotional, which isn’t a bad thing for a Ryder Cup, but videos of his range blowups won’t help his case,” writes Josh Berhow in “Tiger? Bryson? Kooch? Your definitive guide to who will (and won’t) earn Jim Furyk’s Ryder Cup picks”
 
And not just Bryson
And then there’s Josh’s negative thoughts on Tiger,  “Would Woods, who is looked up to by virtually every player on Tour, be more beneficial as a vice captain and leader than a player? He was highly praised for his work as an assistant captain on the last Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup teams.”
Not quite sure Josh has got it right as to why Tiger won't be picked when everyone else thinks Tiger’s a shoo-in for a place. Could it be Tiger is definitely a better bet being on the sidelines than on the team? 
After all he doesn’t have all that great a Ryder Cup record for a player of his calibre and at the moment he really is pushing his body and mind way too far ahead of himself.
 
And then there’s Phil
“Hasn’t recorded a top 10 since May and his erratic driver can be a liability in foursomes,” and of course the same could be said about Tiger and I’m picking that the Le Golf National golf course layout will gobble up wayward driving.
 
Too early for Tony Finau? 
Josh writes, “One of the few players to make the cut at all four majors this season, Finau’s had a strong year even without a victory. He’s finished runner-up twice and has eight top 10s, and he’s missed the cut in just three of 24 starts.” But alas for Tony, “Why he won’t be picked: A lot of solid veterans are in front of him.”
Personally I’d go for Tony over Tiger but have to write I’m rooting for the Europeans and the presence of Tiger does create the fear factor in the hearts of most competitors and consequently would prefer to have him on the sidelines.
