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.

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 –...

Tom Watson Makes the Right Ryder Cup Picks

Though the selection show was longer and more useless than a Judge Judy marathon, U.S. Ryder Cup Captain made the best three selections with his at-large picks, choosing former U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson, past PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley, and plucky Hunter Mahan. When the other choices are Chris Kirk, Brandt Snedeker, and Ryan Moore, you have to err...
