So, who ought to Donald choose along with his six captain’s picks?

If MacIntyre and Fleetwood take up the ultimate two automated spots, I’d nonetheless choose Fitzpatrick and Paul. Each gamers have had terrific seasons on the PGA and DP World Excursions.

As for the opposite 4 spots, I’d take Englishman Justin Rose, Irishman Shane Lowry, Adrian Meronk of Poland, and Sepp Straka of Austria.

That would depart out Ludvig Aberg of Sweden, Victor Perez of France, and Rasmus Højgaard of Denmark, as these three gamers should look forward to 2025, when Bethpage Black will host the biennial competitors.
