CHASKA, Minn. (AP) — U.S. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III has chosen Rickie Fowler, J.B. Holmes and Matt Kuchar for three of his four picks for the upcoming showdown with Europe at Hazeltine.

Love announced his choices on Monday, a day after the BMW Championship.

Holmes finished 10th in the Ryder Cup standings and is one of the few active Americans to have never lost in the event. He played at Valhalla in 2008, when he went 2-0-1.

Those three join Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Phil Mickelson, Patrick Reed, Jimmy Walker, Brooks Koepka, Brandt Snedeker and Zach Johnson, who qualified in the final standings for the Americans.

Love will announce his final captain’s pick on Sept. 25, after the Tour Championship.

The Ryder Cup begins on Sept. 30.
