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.
