BERNHARD LANGER: Well, right now as we speak, probably my vice captain Anders Forsbrand is in Detroit checking out the golf course for me and going to give me a report which way it is set up, and that might have a small bearing on who I'm going to pick.
BERNHARD LANGER: Those were several questions, and one thing I forgot in your last question, I have a tendency to pick someone who has played well the last four to six weeks because he's going to be high in confidence, ready to go.
