US players in the Ryder Cup
2012 victories: Zurich Classic, Byron Nelon Championship.
2012 Majors: Masters-T24, US Open-T4, British Open-T31, PGA Championship-T27.
Backspin: This will be the one player European fans still don’t know, despite his two wins this year on the PGA Tour and his playoff loss last year in the PGA Championship. All anyone needs to know is that Dufner is reliable. He’s not easily rattled, though that figures to be tested in his first Ryder Cup. He can partner with just about anyone. The one area of his game that can’t afford to stay home is his putting.
World ranking: 13.
Ryder Cups: Rookie.
Ryder Cup record: 0-0-0.
Career victories: 3.
2012 victories: Bridgestone Invitational.
2012 Majors: Masters-T27, US Open-T68, British Open-T34, PGA Championship-T3.
Backspin: The former PGA champion embodies the younger blood on the U.S. team, and this one is a gamer. He regularly plays money games with Phil Mickelson, and he showed plenty of fight when he hung in there long enough to beat Jim Furyk at Firestone. He also holed a 25-foot birdie putt on the 18th at Riviera to force a playoff. Bradley is long off the tee and was a good putter even before he went to the belly putter. He likely will be spending a lot of time with Mickelson at Medinah.
