THE FINAL PICK of TEAM USA made by Captain Davis Love III will take place on NBC’s Sunday night Football at Halftime of the Game.

Talk about a cross promotion, while there might not be much to see football wise by halftime, at least the pick might be interesting. Or it might not be, there are some in the golf world who already wonder what Love is doing with his picks. Is it the best players right now, who can putt. Or is it the guys in the boy’s club. We will see.

Following the announcement, the PGA of America will put out an official release to the media, with comments from Love and player selected. For more information please visit, or on social media @RyderCupUSA on Twitter or on Facebook or Instagram.
