American Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson announced his wildcard picks in a glitzy press conference in New York City the day after the conclusion of the Deutsche Bank Championship. Just a day earlier, Billy Horschel had the chance to tie clubhouse leader Chris Kirk with a birdie on the par-5 18th, but he chunked his second shot into the hazard guarding the green (and it was so bad that it almost came up short). That probably didn’t give Watson the best impression of Horschel.

That likely caught Watson’s attention, but unfortunately, it was a few days too late. Or maybe it wouldn’t have. After all, he didn’t pick Chris Kirk, who played alongside the world no. 1 Rory McIlroy over the weekend at TPC Boston and came out victorious at the DBC.

The Deutsche Bank Championship isn’t just the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs. It’s also — perhaps more importantly for a handful of players — the last chance for guys in the running to impress U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson before he announces his three wildcard picks next Tuesday, September 2nd. In other words, it’s a big week for those hoping to get a phone call on Monday evening.

Among those names are Keegan Bradley and Webb Simpson, both of whom are off to sizzling starts at TPC Boston.

According to an article on the Back9Network.com, the Ice Bucket Challenge did not originate in the golf world, but the golf world is perfecting it. Rickie Fowler was called out by one of his buddies in the extreme sports world, Supercross legend Jeremy McGrath, and buckets of cold water started to fly from golf courses to hotel rooms to swimming pools to parking lots.

Keegan Bradley has developed a distinct preshot routine where he rocks back and forth to ease himself into the address position. It is working for Keegan at the U.S. Open with consecutive 69s over the first two rounds, but one of his playing competitors finds the routine difficult to deal with.

Finally, it was Every’s time on Sunday at Bay Hill as he captured the Arnold Palmer Invitational by a shot over Keegan Bradley to secure his maiden victory.
