Tom Watson is playing this week in the Greenbrier Classic, which means it's time to grill him about who his Ryder Cup captain's picks will be.

Sure, there are two majors and an entire summer of golf to be played before Team USA faces Team Europe, but with Tiger Woods nowhere near earning a spot on the team, the golf world wants to know what Watson is thinking.

"I'll be watching Tiger as he plays," Watson said Wednesday. "He'll be playing at the Open Championship, hope to get together with him there and tell him my feelings about him direct. As I've said in front of the press, if he's playing well and he's healthy, he's on the team."
