Backspin: No other captain’s pick will face as much scrutiny as Furyk. Even though Davis Love III singled him out as a pick early on, Furyk is the only American on the team who has not won this year, and two of his close calls are remembered for his failures _ the 3-wood he hooked on the 16th hole of the U.S. Open to fall out of a tie for the lead, and his double bogey at Firestone on the 18th that cost him the win. He was picked because he plays tough, and he was at his best in a singles loss to Luke Donald last year that went 18 holes. Against anyone else, Donald might have won that match on the 13th hole.
