We’ll have more on the grueling (and somewhat forgettable) last round of the PGA, in which most golfers shot over par. But the most pressing issue is the Ryder Cup. Hal Sutton will be making his 2 captain’s picks by tomorrow.

Here are who made the team: Tiger, Phil, Davis Love, Jim Furyk, Kenny Perry, David Toms, Chad Campbell, Fred Funk, and with their play today, Chris DiMarco, and Chris Riley (who never seems able to make a clutch putt).

Some people who are left out: Steve Flesch, Stewart Cink, Jay Haas, Jerry Kelly, Jeff Maggert, Scott Verplank, Justin Leonard, Todd Hamilton, John Daly.

My prediction of whom Sutton will pick: Jay Haas and Scott Verplank.

If I were captain, who’d I pick: Jay Haas and John Daly, or possibly Todd Hamilton.

P.S. The U.S. Ryder Cup scoring system seems just as mysterious as the BCS Championship for college football. Why would Justin Leonard have vaulted from 30th in the standing to the top 10 if he had won the PGA? That’s an incredible jump and would have seemed odd, given that Todd Hamilton has won twice this year and still wouldn’t have made it.
