repeat the mistakes of Hall Sutton in 2004. “I wouldn’t guess that would be a good idea as a captain, I’m just saying,” Furyk told the Golf Channel earlier this year. Woods is much more likely to find himself alongside DeChambeau, who shares the same golf ball manufacturer and has earned Tiger’s admiration. “He and I playing together would be fantastic,” Woods said. “He’s competitive, he’s fiery and he’s got all the things you want when you play a team match. I know that we play the game completely differently – I’m very much feel-orientated and he’s very much a numbers guy – but for some reason we get along great.” Furyk also has the challenge of finding someone for Mickelson to play with because his usual partners – Kevin Kisner and Keegan Bradley – are both missing in France. Tony Finau could be an option. The pair played together for the first three rounds of the Northern Trust, which prompted Mickelson to say: “Not only is he a great player, he’s a solid guy, he’s one of my favourite guys to be around.” Lefty’s fellow Californian and regular practice-round buddy, Rickie Fowler, is another likely option. The Europeans, meanwhile, could unveil the pairing of Ian Poulter and Tyrrell Hatton, who are set to play together at the World Cup in November. “Mr Ryder Cup” would be the perfect mentor for his debuting compatriot – just as Garcia would be for Rahm. THE FLAG-BEARERS Reed has proven he is the most reliable player for the United States, earning himself the near-impeccable record of 6-1-2 from two appearances. His backend to the season was somewhat disappointing – and he has copped plenty from the public since capturing the green jacket in April. But he has been dubbed “Captain America” for a reason and should be good enough to earn his team at least three points. Molinari, despite his poor Cup record (0-2-1), should prove to be a dominant force at Le Golf National – where he has played 13 French Opens and claimed four top-10s, including three runner-ups. The Open Champion is one of the best ball strikers in the world and will have no problem whatsoever positioning himself around the tight Albatros course. His levelheadedness and flexibility to play alongside anyone adds to his value for the Europeans. “There’s going to be a lot of European guys vying for his partnership in the foursomes at the Ryder Cup, that’s for sure,” McIlroy said after The Open Championship. “He’s a fantastic golfer and he’s a great guy.” COVER STORY SUBSCRIBE TODAY and receive either a 2019 valued at $998 each!
