Ryder Cup: mulligan for Lehman?

Hmmm. Let’s see. Davis Love, -8, in second place behind Tiger. Lucas Glover, -5, tied for fifth. Both were passed over by Captain Tom Lehman for the Ryder Cup. Lehman picked Stewart Cink, who is doing well at -3, and Scott Verplank, who is doing not so well at +6. (Both Love and Glover were in fact higher on the Ryder Cup point standings than Verplank by at least 5 places.)

It’s, of course, easy to start second-guessing, but here’s my question: if the Ryder Cup is at the end of September, why do the captains need to make their selections so early in August? If I were the coach, I’d like to know how the players are playing right before the competition. I’d like to know, for example, if Scott Verplank shoots +6 or higher this week before selecting him.
