I'm a tad upset Larry Nelson hasn't been selected. He sure must have said something in the past that infuriated the PGA of America, and they are acting like he doesn't exist.
On the other hand, I agree that picking a Captain more beyond his best playing days is a sound move. I admit Mr Watson still can play and is a wonderful competitor, but picking a Captain in his 40's doesn't make sense anymore. Many guys are still on the Tour and competing at 40, a la DLIII.
So this addition of a more seasoned Captain may now create an opening for Mr Nelson to finally be selected.
