Paul McGinley makes Ryder Cup selections, leaves off Luke Donald
Stephen Gallacher, Lee Westwood, and Ian Poulter make the 2014 Ryder Cup team.
This is Gallacher's first ever selection while Westwood and Poulter are a combined 30-15-6 record.
"Stevie's first words to me when I told him he was in the team were, 'That's brilliant wee man'," said McGinley who added that he struggled with leaving Luke Donald off the team.
"Very, very, very difficult call for me to make, but it was one I had to make in the interest of the European team," he said. "His last two words were, 'Go Europe.' I think that says a lot about him."
McGinley also said he went off of "captain's instinct" (whatever that is) for his selections. As Shane Bacon pointed out, who cares what he went off of because this team is loaded:
Current world rankings of the European Ryder Cup team (!!) - 1, 3, 4, 5, 12, 16, 21, 26, 28, 33, 36, and 38. Good luck, Mr. Watson.— Shane Bacon (@shanebacon) September 2, 2014
Danny Willett can certainly hit it farther than he can throw it, but this is pretty good
