GOLF • Davis Love III became the third straight U.S. captain to pick a Ryder Cup rookie. Love filled out his 12-man team Tuesday by selecting Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker, Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker, one of four Ryder Cup rookies who will be playing in a team competition for the first time as a pro.
The Ryder Cup is Sept. 28-30 at Medinah outside Chicago. Even though Europe has dominated this competition since 1995 it has won six of the last eight times it has won on U.S. soil only twice in the last 20 years.
The eight Americans who qualified three weeks ago were Tiger Woods, Masters champion Bubba Watson, Jason Dufner, Keegan Bradley, U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson, Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar and Phil Mickelson. That makes four Americans who have never played in a Ryder Cup Snedeker, Dufner, Simpson and Bradley.
