Kaymer surprised at Snedeker pick
European Ryder Cup player Martin Kaymer is surprised at the American selection of rookie Brandt Snedeker ahead of Rickie Fowler or Hunter Mahan for the event later this month.
US captain Davis Love III chose Dustin Johnson, Steve Stricker, Jim Furyk and Snedeker as picks on Tuesday to join the eight automatic qualifiers in his 12-man team for the Ryder Cup from September 28-30 at Medinah outside Chicago.
Kaymer says whereas Snedeker will be a rookie, "Rickie and Hunter have the experience of having played in 2010" when Europe won in Wales.
The German was speaking ahead of this week's KLM Open, at which he will be play the opening two rounds with European captain Jose Maria Olazabal and Ryder Cup rookie Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium.
