Stricker named to 3rd straight US Ryder Cup team

Posted:
NEW YORK (WKOW) -- Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III has filled out his 12-man American team with Steve Stricker, Jim Furyk, Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker.

Johnson and Snedeker played their way onto the team over the last two weeks. They were the only Americans to finish among the top six in both FedEx Cup playoff events, a performance that was difficult for Love to ignore. Stricker is a great putter and good partner for Tiger Woods. Furyk is a captain's pick for the first time in 15 Ryder Cup or President Cup matches. 

Love left out Hunter Mahan, a two-time winner on the PGA Tour this year. 

The Ryder Cup is September 28-30 at Medinah outside Chicago. For all its dominance, Europe has won only twice in America the last 20 years.
