Ryder Cup


Vlad Magic

Recommended Posts

Ryder cup not just about good golf, is it? There is pairings to consider, who plays in what format, where in the Sunday singles draw the assumed big-guns are placed. Europe (thanks to people like Seve) now have the belief that they can go toe-to-toe on any soil. On paper, USA team looks very good but, do they have the genuine passion that Europe now posses in ♠️'s ?

 

Match-play golf, there isn't enough. Strategic drives, lay-ups, pitches and successful putts all receive roars of appreciation from educated crowds. Medal play is dull as dishwater, if someone is 4/5 shots ahead on the back 9, i.e. the recent Dutch Open...boak!

 

I only have one concern in this European team...Mr Hatton, I do hope, he doesn't decide mid-round, his clubs are too long...:thumbsup:

 

C/mon Paddy, players, caddies & the European restricted support...it's a daunting task but, it is, The Ryder Cup...🍀

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

Stage managed conversation between DeChambeau and Koepka (wee joke at the end, aye right) on the practice range earlier and right in front of Graeme McDowell. Mind games already?

Collectively the Americans are still not a group. They can say they are, but I doubt it. 
Brooks and Bryson will be their downfall.

Pretty sure Harrington and Sergio weren't exactly the best of friends but that's was always shoved to the side when the Ryder Cup came round and again here with Sergio being a Captain's pick.

I heard that as well.

Noticed Sergio was sitting next to Harrington in the official photo

Probably picked Sergio to balance out picking his best mate.

Watching the opening ceremony and half the USA team are wearing fecking shades. No sun and under cover. 

 

Shifty eyed wanks. 

 

The USA captain already in tears during his opening speech. Big girl's blouse.

 

I hope we Rahm it right up them.

Went back to 2007 but all seems to have been settled since. 

 

Within that time, Sergio has decided to pick fights with Tiger and Kuchar and dig up bunkers and greens in Saudi.

 

Ever since his girl was born, he's mellowed. 😄

No Dechambeau is interesting

Not a surprise. He's better playing his own ball in the later session.

Brooks, having a spat with the Yank media last night, great viewing, better than the cringe opening ceremony.

I’d love Europe to shove it up the yanks but with very few of our fans in attendance I think 🇺🇸 will win hope I’m wrong

The US will when this Early. Easy work. Hopefully Europe can do it, but the only have 2 chances, no and feck all.

If the Spieth-Thomas  v  Rahm-Garcia match is halved or won by Europe, Stricker will implode. 6 Yank rookies, then add Dechambeau v Koepka v Azinger...:scenes:

 

Struggling to pick a General in the us ranks, Europe have a few...

2nd match looks like Europe's cornerstone match.  Lose that one and they're possibly in trouble.  USA have the edge in the others but Europe can nick one.  4th match maybe.

 

Going for 2-2.  Any lead for Europe would be quite a feat.

No, they prefer the foursomes. They have a very good record in this format which is why they wanted the foursomes first and not fourballs. The home captain has the option.

Still fancy Europe in this. Yes USA have the better players but that’s been the case in every single Ryder Cup. The Americans don’t get the Ryder Cup the same way as the Europeans.

Actually looking at the stats and you’re right and I’m talking shite! Think I’m getting my foursomes and fourballs mixed up
