The 100th PGA Championship produced high drama, with Tiger Woods turning back the clock with a pulsating Sunday charge, and Brooks Koepka ultimately pounding his way to his second major title of the year.
The PGA at Bellerive also served as the final qualifying event for the U.S. Ryder Cup Team that will take on Europe next month, outside of Paris. The top eight qualifiers were determined, leaving U.S. Captain Jim Furyk to select his remaining four players in September.
So, who do you think Captain Furyk should pick? Well, here’s your chance. Simply email our COO, Tim Rowe, with your four picks, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The one who gets all four right will win a Golf Life Navigators’ pin flag signed by our own Peter Jacobsen, who played in two Ryder Cups. (Should there be a tie, we’ll randomly select two winners.)
To give you some, ahem, guidance, we present Tim’s picks, along with those of our CEO (Jason Becker) and President (Lynn Josephson), plus the players who have automatically qualified already through the Ryder Cup Points system.
Here are the eight players who have automatically qualified through the Ryder Cup Points system:
Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Jordan Spieth, Patrick Reed, Webb Simpson, Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson
