Looks quite a tight course, won't necessarily suit the big hitters, especially if it is windy. I expect the Yanks might win it this time.

US travel ban for the EU has been dropped. Maybe a little too late for most to get out there, I guess there's no tickets left anyway.

 

Going to be a big home crowd that'll not have much etiquette.

Nail on head.  Never,  ever underestimate Europe,  yet they always are at every staging of the Ryder Cup.  2/1 odds is a bit silly,  albeit I can see the whole thing hinging on how well Europe's veteran players do.

It's being dropped in November, so unless there are serious rain delays I don't think we'll be seeing the Guardians of the Cup out there.

Cannot wait for this!

 

US strong team on paper but pairings going to be difficult for them with some big personality clashes. Brooks and the fans could clash too so a lot going on!

 

Looking forward to seeing how Hovland is used by Padraig.

Looking forward to it. But sadly it'll be a quick victory for the USA, because Paddy is hopeless and has picked some blowhards . And having no fans to help them.

:vrface:Picks that included a recent Open Champion who was on the fringes of an automatic place and a record points holder who's one of the ball strikers around and in decent form. 

 

Who should have got the picks? Bob, Richie and Laird? 😄

Harrington was in a fortunate position where he had depth to choose from. Stenson had shown form and consistency over the last month and would have put his name in the mix. 

 

This is matchplay and a different game altogether. A pairing could go off in match 1 and find themselves 3 up early doors. The same pairing could be selected in match 2, play the same game and be all square. The margins are that fine. 

 

Europe's ust looks to have a better team set up. The US have small groups who mingle but will be interesting to see how they operate as a team.

The Scottish boys haven't been playing to great. 

And Rose was world number 1 when Bluto won the open. Hamilton, Curtis and Laurie are open champions , anaw. Not great are they

Poulter is in on past cups. Rose was 6th at Wentworth, Ian missed the cut.  I like Ian but he shouldn't be there.

If Rose had got the nod, it still would have been a strong side. Poulter is in for his experience but also note he was higher up the world points list. 

 

There were a few who could have nabbed one of the last automatic places as Perez and Lowry were not far away.

Paul Lawrie, not great...

 

Claimed three and a half points on his Ryder Cup debut in 1999 and played a major role in the 2012 win at Medinah, particularly in the singles where he defeated Brandt Snedeker 5&3 as Europe roared to a famous comeback.

Was handed the Open. You don't have to be to great to win a major, just hope the rest are worse than you.

Handed the Open? 10 shots behind on the last day, carded a 67 on a brutal Carnoustie to contest a play-off. Hit a four iron second shot to four feet on the 18th and sank the putt for The Open and champion golfer of the year. There is greatness everywhere in that win...

Yes, it is a total misconception that Lawrie didn't "win" that open, Van de Velde lost it. Yes, JVDV had a total brain fart but Lawrie still had to get the job done and he did it in style.

Can't wait. Think Harrington was in a difficult position with regards to his picks. Sergio was always making it and so was his mate Lowry so that just really left Rose and Poulter to choose. Think Poulter's record in Ryder Cup won him the pick but I believe it could have gone either way and don't have an issue with it.

 

Having said that, I can't see anything bar a win for USA but you really never know. We've been underdogs many times before and came through superbly to triumph. Hopefully the comments from Koepka not being a team player and DeChambeau not exactly well liked amongst the US players will work in our favour.

 

Good time to be working from home and the only golf I'll miss will be during the game on Saturday. Bring it on!

People also underestimate how well Van de Velde played until his 'moment'. Watched the 1999 Ryder Cup yesterday and both VDV and Lawrie were in it with Lawrie being one of the few European wins on the last day. Still blame Mark James for not playing 3 players until that final day, colossal error.

Personally would have had Rose instead of Garcia. Not sure Garcia is up to level required when pressure is on anymore, but look forward to finding out.

The Solheim cup was fantastic viewing and the European team showed how to silent home support. It's now up to men's team to follow example showed by women.

Will Harrington be a good captain, can the old guys do it one more time or will US rookies be too strong.

Head says US but hoping Europe do job.

The Ryder Cup is fantastic and golf is far more suited to being watched on TV than in person.

That worked well for the US women in the Solheim Cup. Write Europe off at your peril. It will once again come down to the singles. If Europe don't have at least a two point lead going into the singles then Europe could be in trouble.

Europe were 4 points down going into the singles at Medinha. Not having a 2 point lead won't rattle the team too much.

Away down south on holiday from Monday thought it would be a good idea to go a day early staying in a hotel and putting the dug in the kennel for a extra night booked it turned on sky last night watching the captains interviews really excited for it and then realised I will miss Sundays singles 😂😂😂 ( and the final ep of vigil ) 😂

They do go a bit OTT sky but they do that with everything  the EPL and Joshua is the worst throw in the fascination over Noel always on TV when it comes to Man City. Rory is not an exception he is just cringy I cannot stand the little scrotum but that gets left aside for the Ryder Cup 😂

Thomas will be their best player I'd imagine

I'm thinking the same Thomas will be their best shortly followed by Schauffele.

 

Europe I'm not too sure I'd say Rahm but he has has a few bad weeks ( since the Scottish open when he gave me a fist pump walking to the putting green he has been mince 😂 )  Casey or Lowery . 

 

Can't wait for it Padrig was class in his interview last night saying if its 40K american fans and no Europeans or no fans at all every day of the week he would take the American fans.

I'll agree with this.

A relaxing afternoon in the pub watching the final couple of rounds is a pleasure.

If Europe are 4pts down going into the singles this time round, then I am afraid they are losing.

I gave him no choice really standing in his road and a sky camera behind him following through the car park 😂

The Ryder Cup provides more entertainment and drama than any top level (overhyped) football tournament.
