Agreed but the Horschel Rule is there for a reason. things could change. I'm expecting Daniel Berger and Justin Thomas to play balls to the wall over the next few weeks. So there's that:)

From USA Today 9/12/16:
"U.S. captain Davis Love III named J.B Holmes, Rickie Fowler and Matt Kuchar to his Ryder Cup team.
Love will make his fourth and final captain’s pick during halftime of a Sunday night game between the Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 25. Ryder Cup week starts the next day."

Ryan Moore is the last captain's choice!

I was hoping for Chappell... call me an ass but I just can't stand watching Moore's loopy swing, and he just seems too nice to take people on in match play.

Thoughts?

Fairway: Nike Covert 2.0 Tour Thanks GolfBalled
Hybrid: Cobra Bio Cell 3 hybrid
Irons: Titleist AP1 4-PW

I'm not 100% sure on this but I heard Moore had an outstanding match play record as an amateur. That along with his recent form would be hard to leave him out.

Also read that Kevin Kisner was a bit sour about the whole selection process. Though his play wasn't good enough in my opinion this year, he could've been a fun choice. An absolute grinder with some added passion.
