Obvioulsy, as a Scot, the make up of the English team for the World Cup in November is not something that keeps me awake at night.
However, in looking at the teams for the event, there is something amiss. McDowell and McIlroy are in place for Ireland. Kaymer is there for Germany. Kuchar, arguably America's number one (at least in terms of consistency) is also present and correct.
England, though - Rose and Poulter. Good players, but where are Donald and Westwood? Oh, they couldn't be ars*d.
I know the World Cup of golf does not have the cachet of the bigger events. But November is officially "silly season", with a smattering of skins, shoot outs and invitationals. It's not as if the WC is clashing with major events. So why the no show from England's top two? Washing their hair that night? Clashing with a dominoes league match?
Whatever - if 3 of 4 recent major winners can make the effort to represent their country in a unique event, why can't England's top two? Eh??
