Americans Fade At The Open Championship

by Jeff Skinner

Earlier this week Ian Poulter said he thought the days of the Americans winning all the majors was over.  He may or may not be right but one thing is for sure: there are more talented golfers from outside the United States than ever before.  Take a look at the Open Championship leaderboard.  The United States was barely represented.

The World Golf Rankings aren’t much better.  The USA totals seven golfers in the top twenty but that includes a wounded Tiger and an injured Anthony Kim.  The English have five in the top twenty and continue to move up the rankings.  Thanks to Louis Oosthuizen, South Africa now claims three golfers in the top twenty.

Corey Pavin is starting to sweat as he looks at the potential lineup he will have to face.  The European team looks very intimidating and they are always motivated come Ryder Cup time.
