The plot thickens: Who will captain the 2014 Ryder Cup Team?
By mustang6560 on 12/11/12
Prior to the start of the Australian Open, David Toms was the front-runner for the 2014 Ryder Cup captaincy. However, during the Australian Open, Tom Watson made a comment that turned the captaincy conversation upside down — he said he would accept the position if tapped on the shoulder. Now, some believe Tom is the favorite.
The three leading candidates to captain the U.S. Ryder Cup team at Gleneagles include former shoo-in David Toms, Larry Nelson, and Young Tom Watson. Ted Bishop, the President of the PGA of America, plans to announce the captain Thursday morning on NBC's "Today" show (8:30 a.m. ET for those who want to tune in).
I know the 2014 Ryder Cup is 21 months away, however, of the three leading candidates, who would you like to see captain the U.S. to victory in 2014? My vote, for obvious reasons, is Dave Toms (Geaux Tigers!). In case you aren't familiar with their resumes, I've included a brief bio of each candidate.

We want the Americans to score in their championship game.
Tim Rosaforte is reporting that the PGA did in fact select Tom Watson. But the announcement won't be official until tomorrow.
Would it be too obvious to say that the choice is elementary?
A modern day warrior,
Mean, mean stride
Today's Tom Watson,
Mean, mean pride
Thumbs up @legitimatebeef!
