Always hard to say why someone did or did not make the team. Perhaps there was a scheduling conflict or an injury that came into play that we don't know about.
Looking at the selections, the weakest to me seems to be the 18 year old from Avon, Ind, Patrick Rogers. His resume looks weaker than some of the selectees, but then I'm not making the picks, am I.
Wish them all good luck in the Walker Cup. Bring it home, boys!
