If you don't think it can be an addiction, I feel bad for you.

It is by the World Health Organization,  in the ICD-11.

If you don't think it can be an addiction, I feel bad for you.

It is whatever Pakuni says it is or isn’t. So you’re wrong. And if you’re OCD you don’t have a mental illness, either. The Oracle has spoken.

OCD is in the DSM as a mental illness.
Unlike video gaming. Or sock drawer preferences (which I've heard is pretty much the same thing as gambling addiction).

There are significant nuances Pakuni.  A manual doesn’t change that fact.

Sorry you don't have empathy for those that suffer from that addiction.

 ICD is used globally and is widely considered best for diagnosis (and the important insurance billing). The DSM needs an update.

I wasn't rolling eyes at people who struggle to put down their PS5 controller.
I was rolling my eyes at your concern trolling.
I feel sorry for you if you didn't understand that.

Now, back to the Ryder Cup

Its OK to admit you were wrong. It happens to all of us.

I would say there's a 100% chance the Saudi's paid his debt. 

Consolidated. Not paid.

I said that I could not envision a scenario where ZJ would take Koepka as a captain's pick.    The golf world has shifted since then.    Koekpa made peace with ZJ.   And won a major.   Since he is no longer an automatic qualifier, I do think he gets a captain's pick.    Strictly from a golf perspective, better him than Justin Thomas.   

Donald has a nice nucleus with Rahm, Rory, Fitz, and Hovland.    His 11-12 picks are not going to be nearly the strengths that ZJ's will be.

This article has Koepka excluded.     Tough call.   Either way, I feel like Europe hold serve in Italy.

I mean, I feel like from a pure golf perspective you almost have to.  He won the PGA, he finished second at Augusta.  He's #3 on the money list for the LIV Tour.  He's fully back from the knee injury.  Regardless of personal opinions, he looks fully back.

gotta go with wags here, plus, the us has slim pickings when it comes to veterans with ryder cup experience who have been playing well as of lately. 

  do you have to consider guys like keenan bradley, lucas glover, fowler, finau(probably in)

  morikawa, burns, xander, jordie, have not been playing well

homa-??
horsey-??
english??
burns-??
don't...don't don't don't don't

The European team Captain's picks are intriguing as well. Could have the first player from Poland but no Italian  golfer anywhere close.

IJP spent a career sucking all year and then wreaking havoc during the Ryder Cup.

Love the JT pick. Locker room chemistry is super important and he’s the leader in the locker room. Plus, he’ll have two months to get his game right. I’m betting he crushes

Bring back FFP!!!

Koepka is all they needed for Locker Room Chemistry.  I'll take someone playing 10 times better golf 100/100 times over locker room chemistry.  Maybe JT gets it together in 2 mos but it's a big question mark.  Clearly if you are boys with certain players on the team you got on and if you aren't well you better be top 6.

Ah, well, ZJ is in the big chair.   He made his choice.   If the US breaks their 30 year losing streak on European soil and JT contributes, ZJ is a genius.   If the US loses and JT plays poorly, ZJ gets the heat.    Nothing to do but wait and see.

I would have taken Keegan.   But I am not in the big chair.


How short will a Sheffler putt have to be for his opponent to concede it?

ZJ isn’t a genius if JT performs well. He picked a guy who didn’t deserve it, didn’t earn it. That’s true no matter the outcome. Lots of guys deserved it more than him.
