Rickie Fowler, Matt Kuchar and JB Holmes have all been named as the three captain's picks for the USA Ryder Cup team.

Davis Love III named his picks today, with Bubba Watson missing out despite featuring in the last three Ryder Cups. Fowler got the nod despite a relatively disappointing year on the PGA Tour. The 27-year-old failed to qualify for the season-ending Tour championship with just two top-10 finishes in his past 12 competitive appearances.

Meanwhile, Matt Kuchar is looking towards a fourth Ryder Cup following an impressive performance at the BMW Championship, finishing in joint-fourth place. JB Holmes is going for his second Ryder Cup tournament since 2008.

In addition to Watson, Justin Thomas and vice-captain Jim Furyk have also been ommitted from the initial pick with just one more space available. Davis will announce who will take that spot on September 25th.
