Kevin Kisner Criticises Ryder Cup Selection Process – “It’s Too Political For Me.


Speaking to GOLF’s Subpar podcast, the multiple-time PGA Tour winner revealed that he has “had the same phone call for about four [Ryder Cups] in a row from about every captain. ‘Man, you were on the team and then you didn’t play well in the playoffs.’ OK, bud.”

From 2016-2021, the American has arguably been one of the best matchplay players in the world, securing victory at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in 2019, as well as a runner-up placing the year before. During that five year stretch, his record stands at an impressive 16-6-2.

It’s not just on the PGA Tour stage where Kisner has shown his matchplay pedigree. At the 2017 President’s Cup, the American went undefeated for the week, managing two wins and two halves against an extremely competitive International team.

Despite all of this success, Kisner still hasn’t forgotten about the previous Ryder Cup snubs. After missing out in 2016 and 2018, the American had thrown his name into contention for a Ryder Cup Captains pick just weeks prior to the staging of the event at Whistling Straits, claiming victory at the Wyndham Championship.
