18 Things I Think…Ryder Cup Style

GOLF-RYDER

1.  I think the European Team certainly played like the favorites they were going into the Ryder Cup. They were sharp, motivated and overpowered an outmanned US Team. 2.  They also really know how to celebrate and they have plenty of experience.  That champagne spraying scene never gets old, no matter what team is holding the bottle. 3.  There were some new stars that introduced themselves to the world and none more so that Frenchman Victor Dubuisson. He played like… Continue Reading

A Very Healthy European Report Card

Rumor has it the champagne and beer are still flowing as a most happy European Team basks in their glorious victory at the 40th Ryder Cup. It’s an old but valid axiom, “players play and coaches coach.” The Europeans players certainly played this week at Gleneagles. They continued their mastery of the team game to claim their third straight Ryder Cup win. Justin Rose 4.0 points A++ : Rose was the stud of the week as he outplayed everyone on… Continue Reading

Fallout From Far and Wide on Phil’s Callout of Watson

Phil-Mickelson-Ryder-Cup

The day after the 2014 Ryder Cup couldn’t be more different for the two teams. The European Team is most likely nursing the remnants of some heavy duty celebration. The Euros played exquisitely and deserve any and all tributes thrown their way. The Americans on the other hand have to asking themselves a painfully familiar question: Why do we keep losing at the Ryder Cup? Team USA has lost in eight of the last ten matches and from the look… Continue Reading

U.S. Ryder Cup player Phil Mickelson stands with captain Tom Watson during his fourballs 40th Ryder Cup match at Gleneagles

Heroes & Zeroes at The Ryder Cup

There was some great play from the American Ryder Cup team this week but, stop me if you heard this one, Europe just played better. A 16.5 – 11.5 point loss is just another in the progression of disappointments Team USA has to swallow. Some stellar play from the rookies wasn’t enough for Team USA to break Europe’s hold on Mr. Ryder’s Cup. Patrick Reed 3.5 points A+ : Reed paired with Jordan Spieth for some great play and was… Continue Reading

Captain Watson Fails in Another American Ryder Cup Defeat

ryder cup 14 logo tro

by Jeff Skinner With another resounding defeat for the Americans at the Ryder Cup the second guessing of Captain Tom Watson will reach a crescendo. In fact it started long before the Euro’s closed out the USA on Sunday with legions of writers and analysts ripping Watson for many of the confusing calls he made this week. Consider this my “Man Crush Disclaimer.” I think Tom Watson is one of the iconic figures in the game and I respect him… Continue Reading

Team USA Needs History to Repeat

by Jeff Skinner It’s like déjà vu all over again…or something like that. Yes, it seems just like yesterday that the host Ryder Cup team sailed to a 10-6 advantage after the first two days. Then out of nowhere the visiting team pulled a Sunday comeback for the ages to win the cup on foreign soil. Tom Watson and his band of not so merry men will be hoping to steal a page from the ’12 European team’s playbook at… Continue Reading

Down 10-6…Been There Done That and Won!

by Jeff Skinner The Americans are facing a seemingly insurmountable deficit of 10-6 at the 40th Ryder Cup.  But anyone that knows their Ryder Cup history knows it has been done before. The European Team came back from the same hole in 2012 at Medinah to embarrass captain Davis Love III and his troops.  But The Americans were the first team to ever comeback from a 10-6 deficit and they did in in 1999 at The Country Club. Maybe Captain… Continue Reading
