The funny thing is with all of the Euro Ryder Cuppers lurking, none of them won.

Videos going around of some ball-devouring rough.   Hit 'em straight.

The last time the USA won on foreign soil?

Major winners that year were Bernhard Langer using a persimmon driver, Lee Jansen, Greg Norman and Paul Azinger.

Tiger Woods had just won his 3rd consecutive US Junior Amateur and wouldn’t turn pro for another 3 years.

The US team included Azinger, Couples, Kite, Janzen, Pavin, Stewart, DL3, Cook, Beck, Gallagher, Jr, Lanny Wadkins and 51-year old Ray Floyd.

5 of those players became captains, a 6th in Stewart would have.  Couples captained multiple Presidents Cups and Floyd HAD already been a captain.

My prediction:   I won't watch more than a few minutes in passing.      Big family wedding in Chicagoland this weekend will take up my time.

Family wedding? That usually happens in Kentucky, not Chicago.

If Rory and Golf Jesus are paired at the Ryder Cup, will it be a landslide or will they go their own way?   Either way, I am sure there will be big love everywhere.

Dreams.

The team building exercise at Wentworth appears to have worked.

It looks like they will never break the chain.

Didn’t see the early session but sounds like Burns, Fowler & Harman were awful

Is the Seve worship reaching Al levels? It feels like they can’t go more than a sentence without mentioning him. I was too young for Seve, so is he that big of a deal?

Yes, in the grand scheme of Ryder Cup things, however, it’s overkill at this point.  Problem is, with Azinger on the call and his rivalry with Seve, it’ll get a lot of play

Apparently we only showed up to shove down some lasagna and osso bucco?  What a dumpster fire.

Looks like USA is starting to pull it together a bit.

With Sergio and Poulter out, I do find the European team pretty likable.

They need 2 points at the bare minimum. 2 1/2 is ok.  3 is game on

No Phil makes USA pretty likable too...honestly fine with whoever wins because I can't say a really dislike anybody out there golfing (maybe Brooks)

I’d like a close one heading into Sunday like the Solheim Cup.  Sunday has been a snoozer since 2012
