USA Wins Lopsided Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits

The United States won the 43rd Ryder Cup in record-shattering fashion, obliterating Europe 19-9 at Whistling Straits Golf Course in Kohler Wisconsin.  Dustin Johnson, the oldest member of the U.S. team, finished the week 5-0-0, only the fifth player in the last 55 years to do so, and 24-year old wunderkind Collin Morikawa sank the cup clinching putt as Team USA...

Forget Everything Except Putting, That’s What Wins Ryder Cups

Forget everything you’ve heard on television, seen on the Internet, or read in magazines. Think with your own head for a moment:  what’s the truest axiom in golf? You drive for show, and putt for dough…and trophies. So ignore who looks stronger on paper, who won “the last how many over the last how long,” and maybe take a close look at the number of untested rookies...

The PGA of America, PGA Tour and the R&A jointly announced that the Ryder Cup and President’s Cup are postponed for one year and rescheduled to 2021 and 2022 respectively. Well it beats having a Ryder Cup with no fans…which is what we get for the PGA Championship and likely the U.S. Open. From the announcement: The 43rd Ryder Cup, scheduled for...

U.S. Dominates Sunday Singles, Breezes to Ryder Cup Victory at Hazeltine

Amidst a tumult and shouting that would have impressed even the great Grantland Rice himself, the United States defeated Europe 17-11, winning their first Ryder Cup since 2008. Patrick Reed preened like an NFL linebacker, Phil Mickelson made putts from Duluth, St. Cloud, and Monkato, and Ryan Moore – the last man to make the team – sank the Ryder Cup...

Minnesota, Hazeltine National, and American Team all Ready for 41st Ryder Cup

Outmanned, Outmaneuvered, Outplayed U.S. Ryder Cup Team Falls at Gleneagles 16.5 – 11.5

It’s one thing to lose when you’re expected to get beat. It’s another thing altogether to go with a whimper instead of a bang. So it was that the 2014 U.S. Ryder Cup team closed the 40th Ryder Cup with a flaccid performance in the singles, absorbing a 16.5-11.5 loss to Europe. It was the U.S.’s their third consecutive defeat and eighth in the...

Glengeagles Ryder Cup 2014 Pairings – Sunday Singles

Tom Watson has turned out to be Captain Useless this time around. He seats our most fearsome lightning rod of a tandem, Phil and Keegan for the length of a Bible. The past time they sat, they fell flat. Now we trail by the dreaded 10-6 margin. Moreover, with the amateurish way he front-loaded the singles – he said he knew what McGinley was going to do –...
