TEAMS for the 2012 Ryder Cup have been finalised with US Captain Davis Love 111 selecting Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker, Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker to fill out his 12 member squad.
They will join automatic qualifiers Tiger Woods, Masters champion Bubba Watson, Jason Dufner, Keegan Bradley, U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson, Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar and Phil Mickelson.
The European Team includes World No.1 Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Graeme McDowell, Paul Lawrie, Francesco Molinari, Luke Donald, Lee Westwood, Peter Hanson, Sergio Garcia and Martin Kaymer.
Jose Maria Olazabal used his two captain’s picks to select Ian Poulter and Nicolas Colsaerts.
The 2012 Ryder Cup takes place at the Medinah Country Club just outside of Chicago from September 28 to 30.
Though Europe has dominated the competition since 1995 – it has won six of the last eight events – it has won on U.S. soil only twice in the last 20 years.
