Much speculation and potential controversy surrounded Corey Pavin as he made his Captain’s picks for the 2010 Ryder Cup team.
Many wondered if Pavin would add Tiger Woods to the U.S. team despite his recent struggles. Pavin eventually did add Woods to the team, making the U.S. team a Dream Team of sorts.
Pavin has three previous Ryder Cup appearances, with wins in two of them. He has surrounded himself with arguably the most talented group of golfers in the world for the 2010 Ryder Cup, with huge names like Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Hunter Mahan, Jim Furyk, Stewart Cink and Zach Johnson.
Pavin will try to lead the Defending Ryder Cup Champion U.S. team to its first Ryder Cup victory on foreign soil since his last win in 1993.
