Another German who has made a strong case for inclusion based on his play over the last 30 days, eh?

They are making the announcements one player at a time.

But Van Boening and Morris have already been announced for the USA.

Ruijsink has been announced as the Captain for Europe.

Are you an American?

You seem familiar.

I have to second the Euro win, for some reason the US players don't seem as tight with each other as the overseas guys. They may support each other in this format but it seems forced. Maybe it's too many business plans and organizations dividing them.

It has been commented often that the European team spend a lot of time together when touring..

Results alone as individuals - they are going to batter America

I'd love to see this line up for the USA:
Archer
SVB
Rodney Morris
Corey
Earl

I think in my opinion they would win the match! The Europeans will be tough as nails though so let's hope the right players are picked for the USA.

USA -Confirmed

If Deuel and Strickland get picked for the last 2 spots i think USA has a good chance at bringing home the cup!!!!!!!

If Strickland's picked the USA has a good chance of winning, are you kidding me! If Earl is picked I can't wait to sit back & watch the USA/Earl implode.

Did I see a thread here on AZ that said JA approached Buddy Hall about being the non-playing Co Captain?

If Earl plays it will be awesome entertainment for sure . Whether USA has better chance is a different thing altogether

Did I see a thread here on AZ that said JA approached Buddy Hall about being the non-playing Co Captain?

How relevant is it to have a legend as the captain? IMHO need a great strategist thinker rather than a great player as captain
I see Europe always has that serious professor Jeffrey Katzenberg lookalike as captain. Have never seen or heard of him before but they have been winning under him:)

Here's the announcement of Archer being named playing captain and Buddy Hall being named assistant captain: http://www.azbilliards.com/news/stories/10349-archer-set-for-record-breaking-17th-appearance/

Is it true that Europe has a higher chance of winning since they have Ralf Souquet, Darren Appleton, Neils Feijen and Karl Boyes compared to Archer, Shane, Rodney and Dennis?
I honestly hope that Thorsten Hohmann will be chosen for the last spot.
