Tiger Woods and Rickie Fowler for Ryder Cup

With the Ryder Cup fast approaching, it is definitely a no-brainer that Tiger Woods was chosen to participate in the group tournament.tiger woods

However, many are baffled why Rickie Fowler got chosen. Yes, that caused many to do a double take. Really?

Corey Pavin, team captain, justified his choice by saying, “It just came down to feelings… I had a gut feeling about Rickie.”

Rick Fowler, a 21 year old rookie, just turned pro 11 months ago. Due to the Ryder Cup pick up, Fowler made history by being the first rookie to be on the PGA Tour American team. Plus, he is also the first captain’s pick who has not won a single event on the tour.rickie fowler

When Pavin made his announcement of the four players he chose, Fowler was the only big mystery, and the only player that raised questions. Other players that Pavin chose were Zach Johnson and Stewart Cink. Both players are major champions, and have been past players of the Ryder Cup.

The matches will take place in Celtic Manor, Wales on October 1 to 3.

Since Woods’ participation in 1997, Fowler will be the youngest American golfer to play in the Ryder Cup.

When asked for his opinion, Fowler said, “I can bring a little bit of color to the team, I can bring some youth to the team and hopefully, get the guys pumped up a little bit… But as I said, we’re all going there to win, so we’re all going to be getting each other pumped and focusing on our main goal, bring home the cup.”
