Tom Watson has announced his three captain's picks for the 2014 Ryder Cup: Keegan Bradley, Hunter Mahan, and Webb Simpson.

The three will join Rickie Fowler, Jim Furyk, Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar, Phil Mickelson, Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth, Jimmy Walker, and Bubba Watson.

Watson's moves come on the heels of European captain Paul McGinley's picks: Stephen Gallacher, Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter. They join Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson, Victor Dubuisson, Jamie Donaldson, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose, Martin Kaymer, Thomas Bjorn, and Graeme McDowell.

The Ryder Cup takes place Sept. 26-28 in Gleneagles, Scotland. Europe has won seven of the last nine meetings, and is a favorite again this year.
