Bubba Watson Chosen as Final Ryder Cup Vice Captain in Nicest Consolation Prize Ever

Captain Davis Love III named Bubba Watson as his fifth and final Ryder Cup Vice Captain on Monday.

Watson was one of the favorites to make the final spot as a player on the team but was skipped over in favor of Ryan Moore, who played phenomenally well to finish the season.

The two-time Masters Champion joins Jim Furyk, Tom Lehman, Steve Stricker and Tiger Woods as the 2016 US Ryder Cup Vice Captains.
