Matt Kuchar goes rogue, claims Tiger Woods should be picked for the Ryder Cup

Tiger Woods has finally announced his long awaited comeback and this has come with some inevitable speculation.

There is just one wildcard pick left for this year’s Ryder Cup at Hazeltine. Matt Kuchar offered some speculation about who America’s captain will pick for the final spot. Love, who also picked Rickie Fowler and J.B. Holmes on Monday, is now facing a very tough decision.

Now Kuch has interjected with one of the best shit stirs of the year:

“I heard even, possibly, this is hearsay, but I’ve heard maybe even Tiger Woods could potentially be a pick,” “That would be legen-dary. Legendary,” “I know he’s playing Safeway. Imagine Tiger Woods being a playing [assistant] captain. Absolutely incredible.”

Speaking in an interview on the Golf Channel, Kuchar said he has “heard” Woods may receive the final captain’s pick despite his status as a vice-captain. This is almost certainly Kuch being Kuch, which is why we love him and he makes our list of Top 10 Most Popular Golfers. Some people genuinely believ Tiger should get the call based on his “contribution to golf”, his “legendary” status and the fact he is coming back anyway. All very tenuous reasons in my opinion, but who should get the pick?
