Golf: Azinger takes his pick.
Azinger, announcing his picks at a New York hotel 17 days before the 37th match against Europe begins at Valhalla in Kentucky, chose three Ryder Cup rookies - Steve Stricker, Hunter Mahan and JB Holmes - and Chad Campbell, with Holmes the only one of the quartet to have won a tournament this year.
"I said all along that we needed to change the selection process and we did that," said Azinger said. We put a one-year system in place and I liked the way it worked and who the top eight players turned out to be.
"It was also my desire to pick four players who were the best, the most confident after the PGA Championship and we had three tournaments to identify that.
"Unfortunately we had three foreign winners in those events so nobody really jumped off the page but in the end, the guys that I decided to pick are all playing really, really well."
