According to several sources there are numerous golf players who are anticipated to make it to the US Ryder Cup Team. The Ryder cup matches will be held from 1st to 3rd October, 2011 at Celtic Manor Resort located in Newport, Wales. The team captain Corey Pavin is impressed and excited with performances of young American golfers but worried about performances of big guns during this season. Below is a list of probable’s golfers, who can make it to the US Ryder team:
Phil Mickelson is one of the best golfers with a better Ryder record than anyone in America. He has earned eleven points from twenty five matches that he has played. But most of the points were earned from his first 3 appearances and he needs to be consistent during Ryder matches. With injury to Tiger woods it is up to Phil Mickelson to lead from front by playing well in all five matches. On the other hand it may be evident that American captains have found it difficult to find a better partner for Phil, as he has managed to win only one match out of seven pair matches. Though Phil has a moderately successful season the golf course will be ideal for his attacking style.
Jim Furyk another professional golfer who has been performing consistently over the past decade has a strike rate of 35% in Ryder Cup Matches. This 2003 US Open champ has been in form for 2010 season, this time he needs to play a pivotal role in the Ryder Cup Play Offs, so that the American team emerges as winners. The experience, accurate game plan and steadiness would act perfectly in foiling the plans of the European players.
Stewart Cink finished as top scorer for America during last edition of this Cup matches winning half of the available points in the event. Cink has garnered a total of five points from a dozen golf matches. This year it will be the fourth Ryder Cup event for him; if he were to get selected then he will be a senior player in a team of young ones. So it is very vital that Stewart gains his momentum to emerge as a match winner for current edition of the Ryder Cup.
Justin Leonard is a former US Open Champion who would return to Ryder cup after a nine years gap. He, along with Furyk and Mickelson, has been a part of Ryder cup winning US team. Justin has earned 2.5 points from eight Ryder cup matches that he has played so far, but his experience could work wonders for American team who are without Chris Dimarco and David Toms.
Anthony Kim is one of the young and aspiring talents in the world of Golf who has earned two wins in championship courses like Congressional and Quail Hollow. This has prompted the locals to compare him with the legend, Tiger Woods. It may seem to be hype but the former champion himself agrees that he will be a main stay for several US Ryder Cups to come. Kim has made a remarkable progress in PGA tour and remained in the top 10 money list earners. Kim can directly set an example by making serious impact with big hitting. Inexperience wouldn’t matter for Kim as he has played for several prestigious events till date.
