NEW YORK: US Ryder Cup captain Davis Love named Steve Stricker, Jim Furyk, Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker as his captain’s wildcard picks for the American Ryder Cup team. Snedeker was chosen for his first Ryder Cup because of his stellar putting touch in the past month. “We need hot putters,” said Love. “There really hasn’t been a better putter since the British Open.” The Americans will face holders Europe in the 39th edition of the biennial team golf matches on September 28-30 at Medinah near Chicago. “I look forward to getting to Medinah and trying to make Davis look like he is a genius,” said Snedeker. Tiger Woods, Bubba Watson, Jason Dufner, Keegan Bradley, Webb Simpson, Zach Johnson, Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar qualified for the American side based upon points accumulated in tournaments through last month’s PGA Championship.
