Breaking News:

Kuchar latest to get the Tom Watson seal of Ryder Cup approval

First, Bubba Watson. Now, Matt Kuchar.

Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson tweeted his seal of approval after Kuchar's amazing hole-out from the bunker to win last weekend's RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links.

And trying not to read too much into it, it sure seems like Kooch can go ahead and start packing for Gleneagles in September. He's third in the current USA Ryder Cup points.

Great bunker shot to seal your victory on 18 Kuch!! Gleneagles here we come!! --- Tom Watson (@TomWatsonPGA) April 20, 2014

The previous week, Watson congratulated Ryder Cup points leader Bubba Watson on his Masters victory with a similar tagline. Perhaps it's just a nice gesture, but one gets the feeling Watson's already penciling in his lineup card.

Watson was in the field at Hilton Head and was paired with Jordan Spieth, allowing the captain some first-hand scouting of a rising star.
