Corey Pavin Picks Four Assistants for Ryder Cup, One Being Rather Interesting
Corey Pavin has all the necessary accolades to be a Ryder Cup captain. Previous player, major championship winner, badass mustache. At the first of October, Pavin will lead the United States team against those scrappy Europeans, and announced on Wednesday who his assistants would be.
There are four. Here they are. Davis Love III (Great choice, played in a ton of these things, very solid core coach), Tom Lehman (Alright, another Ryder Cupper with a British Open crown, something helpful with the event behind held across the pond), Jeff Sluman and Paul Goydos (Whaaaaaaaaaaa?!).
Goydos is the real surprise, mainly because, as he said, "I have as much (experience in Ryder Cups) as Michael Jordan."
I do like the chemistry factor of having Goydos around. Surely he will loosen up the team, and here is to hoping nobody decides on the mock turtlenecks for our boy.
