Stricker picked for Ryder Cup team


NEW YORK (AP) -- Steve Stricker, Hunter Mahan, J.B. Holmes and Chad Campbell are the captain's picks on the Ryder Cup team.

Campbell will play on his third straight Ryder Cup team, the first as a wild-card selection. Stricker and the others will be making their Ryder Cup debut, among six rookies for an American team that has not won since 1999.

The Ryder Cup will be played Sept. 19-21 at Valhalla in Louisville, Kentucky.

Captain Paul Azinger had been considering Stricker and Holmes all along.

Stricker finished ninth in the standings, losing out on an automatic spot at the PGA Championship when Ben Curtis tied for second to move into the top eight. Stricker is number eight in the world ranking, but at age 41, will be playing in his first Ryder Cup.
