2016 U.S. Ryder Cup captain’s picks: Davis Love picks Fowler, Holmes, Kuchar


The 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup team is one step closer to completion, with U.S. captain Davis Love III adding Rickie Fowler, Matt Kuchar and J.B. Holmes to the 12-player team with three of his four wild-card picks.

Holmes finished 10th in automatic qualifying, with Fowler finishing 11th and Kuchar ending up 12th.

These three players join Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Phil Mickelson, Patrick Reed, Jimmy Walker, Brooks Koepka, Brandt Snedeker and Zach Johnson, who were the eight automatic qualifiers in the points process which ended with The Barclays, the first leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

Excluded from the picks was Bubba Watson, who finished ninth in the standings.

Love will have one more captain's pick, which he will make after the PGA Tour season and FedEx Cup playoffs conclude with the Tour Championship on Sept. 25. Love will announce the pick on NBC during halftime of the Sunday Night Football telecast.
