United States Ryder Cup captain Zach Johnson has made his choices and the side is now set for next month’s matchup in Italy.

Four players will make their debut in the biennial event against the Europeans, who haven’t lost on home soil since 1993.

He was in the running, finishing ninth in Ryder Cup points, so he could have been chosen.

You could definitely could have made a case for him.

Less so with him, but I’ve seen some fans making a case.
