Agreed. Not picking Rocco completely negates Faldo's dumb move of going with Ian Poulter. And the U.S. - which is going to be blown out - needs any little advantage it can get.

Rocco is the ultimate scrappy fighter, the type of guy who'd be hustling rubes out of their cash in golf matches if he hadn't made it as a pro.

And you go with Chad Campbell over that?

I agree with you guys completely. Chad Campbell has had a terrible year. And even if he were playing well, he is arguably the most boring, least inspiring PGA Tour winner ever. J.B. Holmes? Also having a poor year, wild off the tee, and a liability in all of the formats. Utterly bizarre picks, on both sides of the pond.

Azinger is a bozo, and these picks should not be
shocking for that reason.

Europe by 10 points.

The thing that strikes me is that Faldo had at his disposal a far more talented group of players to choose from when making his wildcard selections than Azinger did.

Lee Westwood, Darren Clarke, Ian Poulter, Colin Montgomerie and Paul Casey are all better players than Hunter Mahan, Steve Stricker, J.B. Holmes and Chad Campbell.

The reason why is simple. European golfers learn target golf, and American golfers usually grow up playing courses with wide fairways, shallow bunkers and short rough. The European team, as usual, looks better than the American team, and I don't expect Europe to lose.

You guys can't be serious. Mediate? Just like he's done his whole career, he has a brief hot spell then fades back into mediocrity. Let's look at his last four tournaments: 52nd, 72nd, missed cut and 69th. Apparently you somehow think he can conjure up great play at will. Nope. And all the guys you mentioned as bad picks? They've outplayed him over the past month.
