VIDEO: European Captain McGinley Explains Picks

EUROPEAN RYDER CUP CAPTAIN PAUL MCGINLEY announced his three captain's picks: Stephen Gallacher, Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood.

Gallacher, who was 10th on the points list, will be making his first Ryder Cup appearance at Gleaneagles later this month. Playing in a total of 14 Ryder Cups, Poulter (five) and Westwood (nine) are seasoned competitors, although neither man has much to boast about lately.

Former world No. 1 Luke Donald was edged out by Westwood, McGinley said.
