Ryder Cup U.S. team captain Davis Love III announced his three captain’s picks on Monday morning. The selections were Rickie Fowler, J.B. Holmes and Matt Kuchar, and the choices drew quite a reaction from prominent social media figures.
From fellow golfers, media outlets and fans alike, here were some of the most interesting responses to the news.
Whatever happens, I’m out-of-my-mind pumped that the Ryder Cup starts in two weeks.

7th in the world, Bubba on the outside looking in. Just a hunch, but if Justin Thomas plays well at East Lake, I think he'll get the nod.
