Let the second guessing begin!
As I note for GolfDigest.com, the captain's made some bold calls in the morning that didn't hurt Europe. But the afternoon is another story: Clarke wheeling out Kaymer and Westwood despite little sign Friday that they were playing well, meaning a benching of Sergio's new pal, Rafa Cabrera Bello.
The real shocker came on the USA side as Captain Davis Love sends out the struggling Phil Mickelson with Matt Kuchar over the red-hot Brandt Snedeker. It also means breaking up the Koepka-Snedeker pairing that has delivered two points so far.
The real fun should be with the long-bombing first group featuring all +300 yard drivers in McIlroy, Pieters, Johnson and Koepka.
