2014 Tour Championship Discussion Thread

Previous winners who went onto the Ryder Cup have seemingly struggled to 'come back down'. They managed 1.5 pts from 6. If a young McIlroy who at 25 would be amongst the fitter guys out there described it as "a week too far" you do wonder how the 10 American's who made it to the last 30 will fare with the additional issue of a transatlantic trip and settling in on a very different climate zone You have to suspect however that we must have seen the end of the early September wildcard pick? My understanding is that Watson could have asked the USPGA to defer his decision, and if he had done so, is it really a stretch to suggest that Chris Kirk and Billy Horschel would be playing instead of Simpson and Mahan/ Bradley.

Missing Links: Another critic of Tom Watson's captain's picks, and 'taking the mickey' for the team

Derek Lawrenson of the Daily Mail is the latest to analyze U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson's captain's picks and wondering whether he erred. "Watson overlooking Chris Kirk in favour of Webb Simpson is looking a bigger mistake with each passing day," he writes , "while Billy Horschel's emergence a week late for wild card consideration is indicative of the sort of misfortune America can ill afford."
