  1. As I'll spend the all week at the Ryder Cup, I'll try to give you here some impressions or informations every day TUESDAY : So here is a quick debrieff of this first day. USA started from tee 1 at 9 :30, with Tiger, Phil, Reed, & Bryson Dechambeau. Then Ricky, Justin, Jordan, & DJ. Koeka, Finau, Bubba & Webb Simpson followed a little bit later. Tiger was very smiling, and happy to share a few words with the crowd all along the day. He also played a very straight and very secure golf today. He used a lot his long irons from the tee, and touched a lot of fairways. That would be the key on this course. But that was Patrick Reed who were the most impressive, and close to the flags today. Behind them, it was a little more complicated for Jordan Spieth. But nothing to worried about too much. I was very impressed by DJ (first time « in real ») : it's very strange to watch how he could play this course I'm used to play almost every week-end. Same for Bubba. Best player on course today (with Patrick Reed). He was very abble to shape to ball like he wanted to do. He litteraly destroyed the course, and overpassed every obstacles. Koepka stuggled a bit at the beginning to find the right tempo, then it was juste « straight and long, straight and long » You guys have a very very impressive team… I was expected a lot, but I think I was still under-estimating them. Europe started from tee 10 at 10AM. Molinari & Noren were the only one playing good golf today. Rory was a bit inconsistent. He was playing with Jon Rahm : maybe they'll start together on Friday. The others visited the rough all along the day. Especially Garcia…. I was surprised by the attitude on our side (I mean my side – EU ;-) ) : the americans were very concentrated and relax, like you need to do ; Europeans were joking like if it was an exhibition (Except for Poulter, who were very focused on his golf today) As we were leaving the course area at the end of the day, I heard someone tell in the bus “well…Europe would need a miracle”.
  2. I am taking a trip with my wife and our close friends to Spain from September 20th - September 30th, and the first thing that crossed my mind was that we will be there for the Ryder Cup. We will be in Madrid, Sevilla, Barcelona and Grenada. Does anyone have any recommendations to get out and play a friendly Ryder Cup match? Thanks, MR
  3. I am excited for the Ryder Cup this year! Don't get me wrong, I'm excited for it every year but this year in particular I have a good feeling that the Americans will get off the schnide. What are everyone thoughts? The automatic qualifiers are in and now we are just waiting on Captains picks. Who do you think Love lll and Clarke should choose and why? Do you like the venue at Hazeltine? Let's talk everything Ryder Cup 2016! http://www.rydercup.com/
  4. The Ryder Cup is right up there with the Masters for me in regards to golf events! I love the whole team event thing and the pressure is like no other. Sure there is pressure at the US Open and others but I think the players feel this is the biggest pressure they are under. I had the 'pleasure' of playing Hazeltine, the course that hosts this years Ryder Cup. It was no pleasure for me as I had the worst round ever on this course and with some work buddies. I still hear it today......Can't wait for one of my buddies to remind me of the 4 putt I had on number 10.......It's a nice course that if they keep the rough up will test the players a lot. End of Sept. can't come fast enough for me.
  5. So with his collapse down the stretch yesterday Rickie Fowler cost himself an automatic bid to the US Team. if he had finished a solo third or better he would have been in the top eight. Instead his bogey/double bogey/bogey meltdown dropped him to 11th on the points list. So if Captain Love goes with the next four 9 (Bubba Watson) 10 (JB Holmes) 11 (Fowler) 12 (Matt Kuchar) he will make it. The question is with his play this year and his inability to finish, do you trust him to be at his best against the European team. Or if you are in Love's place do you go a bit further down the list and take either Bill Hass (14) or Jim Furyk (15). Furyk has shown stretches of solid golf this summer. I skipped over number 13 Scott Piercy (unlucky 13 ha) as he has had a very good year, but I just don't see him ahead of either Furyk or Hass. As much as I hated seeing Fowler implode, I think I still go with him if I'm Love. He has a pretty strong record in Match Play, and Love showing him the confidence could be just the spark he needs. You know the US fans in Chicago would get behind him. And I think a paring with Phil could be a great situation for him. So what's everyone think.

  7. So I recently got the pleasure of playing the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island and I must say it was one of the best golfing experiences I have ever had in my life! However, the coastal weather is what can make this historical course so demanding. We saw during the 1991 Ryder Cup and the 2012 PGA Championship that the wind on this course can force even the best golfers in the world to struggle to make par! With that said, we showed up to the course last Thursday and the temperature was supposedly about 60* and sunny. However, the winds were gusting up to 30 mph making it seem much cooler. Anyways, This got me a little intimidated but our 3some sort of expected this type of challenge for the day and in fact, we started talking about it after the round...a round at the ocean course wouldn't really be complete without some type of heavy winds, right!? We had caddies and started our round with 15-20 mph winds and I specifically remember I hit an 8-iron into the short par-4 3rd hole (the one Rory hit his ball into the tree), but it was only 100 yards! I still came up short!! 6-14 (I believe) we're downwind so we were able to really go after some of the greens which were lightning fast, I might add. Not sure how but I managed to make 3 birdies and finished the day at 81....all thanks to my caddie though who guided me through the course skillfully. I'm very proud of my score but I will say I've never hit so many 4 and 5 irons in a single round in my life! It was truly an amazing place and experience. With all of that said, I would've been slightly disappointed if we had played that course when there was no wind and easy conditions. Have you guys played the ocean course? What did y'all think? If not, would you prefer high winds or nothing?
  8. Putting aside the obvious "Vice" jokes.... Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker Named Ryder Cup Vice Captains Tiger Woods Named Vice Captain of U.S. Ryder Cup Team Team USA Captain Davis Love III has named Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk and Steve Stricker vice captains for the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazelton. by Gary Van SickleTwitter Posted: Wed Nov. 18, 2015 ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- It's time to take those stories about Tiger Woods not being fully invested in the Ryder Cup and put them in cold storage. In a surprise announcement, American Ryder Cup captain Davis Love named Woods one of three new vice captains here Wednesday, along with Steve Stricker and Jim Furyk. The origins of the move can be traced to the recent Presidents Cup in South Korea, where Love said he got a phone call from Fred Couples at 5:30 in the morning. The message: Tiger wants you to call him. “As soon as Tiger and I got off the phone, then Tiger called Stricker or Furyk, I think,” Love said. “He couldn't play anywhere, he couldn't even chip but he was excited. Tiger wanted to know, ‘Why in the world would you put this guy with that guy?' I didn't think I'd hear from him at all during the week but he was really excited. “People say he's not engaged. Well, the guy was calling us, wants to know who's playing the next match and he wants us to win. He was giving us advice, too. I think the message he sent to us was, I want to be in the mix.” Woods became a viable addition to the team after Love and European captain Darren Clarke agreed to expand the number of vice captains from four to five. That was done to clarify the sometimes-muddy situations at Ryder Cups where so many other people besides official assistant captains turn up with walkie-talkies or carts. “We just said if you want five guys, let's just agree to have five guys and move on,” Love said. So, Woods is in and Love is holding his fifth vice captain's pick in reserve for now. In February, Love used his first selection on Minnesota native Tom Lehman, an obvious choice since his home state will host the 2016 matches. Love's final spot could eventually go to Phil Mickelson if Lefty doesn't make the team, or to his good friend and former Presidents Cup captain Fred Couples. Or, he could choose someone else. Love said he has talked to Woods several times in the past few weeks about how his surgically repaired back is progressing. “Tiger wants to make the team, that's his No. 1 goal,” Love said. “He wants to play, I think, and be a vice captain. He wants to be a leader but he doesn't want to be a general sitting in the room, he wants to be in the battle.” Love was also asked to explain the dynamics among his current four assistants. “Tiger will be the general,” Love said. “Steve is a lot like me, he'll be taking care of behind-the-scenes stuff. Steve will say, ‘We can go park the carts and plug them in,' he likes doing that stuff. Jim is more of a rallying guy. He likes getting information from the players and giving speeches. I like turning the speeches over to him because he's really good at it. Bubba Watson and I aren't going to be very good at giving speeches, we're both going to start crying. Tom is just so full of passion and energy. He'll be our red-white-and-blue, Minnesota, let's-go-get 'em guy to inspire the fans and our positive energy guy.” The Americans have won only two of the last 10 Ryder Cups and after the mash-up at Gleneagles, when Phil Mickelson threw captain Tom Watson under the bus during a post-loss press conference, it was time for a new way of doing things. The Americans put together an 11-man task force of players as varied as Rickie Fowler and Raymond Floyd. They were the ones who decided to give Love a second captaincy after he led the U.S. to a stinging come-from-ahead loss at Medinah in 2012. The Americans didn't set out to copy the European system, but step one was the PGA of America recognizing that, hey, the Europeans have a system in place. Step two was figuring out how to implement some of their methods. Love said Paul McGinley, the winning European captain at Gleneagles last year, has been very open with much of his planning. Love recalled a conversation he had with losing American captain Corey Pavin early in 2011. “We had a great talk about the next two years and everything he said came true,” Love said. “But now we're looking farther out than just two years. Learning from Team Europe has been beneficial for us, just like North Carolina looking at what Clemson is doing in football right now would be beneficial for them.” The biggest thing the Americans have going for them is a renewed determination. Love is sweating the details. He asked Mickelson and Woods and other players how many times they needed to play a course to get comfortable with it. “Everybody had a slightly different answer,” Love said. “Tiger goes at it one way, Jordan Spieth goes at it another. We'll do whatever it takes to get our guys to Hazeltine. We will make it available. If one guy says, I want the whole course to myself, nobody talks to me, that's what we're going to do.” Love also recalled U.S. captain Dave Stockton sending him to the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island to play practice rounds in 1991. “I didn't get picked,” Love said, “but that fired me up and made me feel like I was part of the team. I'll probably do that to someone next year, too. There's 20 or 30 or 40 guys right now who think they're going to make the team, right? Well, we will do whatever it takes.” If Whatever It Takes isn't already the U.S. team slogan for 2016, it probably should be. Love might want to have it engraved on a sweater somewhere. Where is Mickelson in all this? Tiger is a vice captain, and he isn't? That's Phil's choice right now, Love said. “That's what Phil wanted,” Love said. “In Korea, Jay's line was, ‘Whatever Jordan Spieth wants, Jordan Spieth gets this week.' Whatever Phil wants, Phil gets. If he wants his role to be a player next year, he'll play. He told me, I'm on a roll, I'm going to play so good next year. You can almost hear him. He literally walked off the 18th green in Korea telling me, ‘I'm ready to go for Hazeltine.' Phil said, ‘Look, I'm focused on making your team and playing on it. I can't do both.'” The 2016 Ryder Cup is 10 months away, and counting…
