Undershooter

Recommended Posts

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!

I'm excited too but I can't understand Mickelson being invited??? No disrespect to him but for the last few years his play has been very inconsistent,if not disappointing. I think the Europeans will again dominate. they have a stronger field.

He qualified off of his play, not by captain's pick. Also look at the world golf rankings. The Americans have actually have the stronger field this year if you look at the teams.

Ah but the US team is always stronger on the world rankings......

 

I see US team winning this time, but it won't be easier and should the US struggle on that first day I wonder if they'll have the heart to come back like Europe did four years ago?

 

It'll be fun, shame I can't get over for it - already saving my pennies for Paris in two years time!

The bottom half is always stronger for US in the rankings but the top ends are usually close. This year I think is the best Ryder cup team the US has had in a while. The US may indeed get smoked but I've have a different feeling this year than in years passed.

I agree Mcavoy. I like ole Jim but I think he should be an assistant captain only. We have too many other good young players who are in form to go with Jim.

Agreed.  I have nothing against Furyk as a player.  He's had a hell of a career and the only guy to break 60 in competition twice and the only one to shoot 58. But his Ryder Cup record is awful and he has a lot of experience losing.  Not that everybody else's RC record is stellar but he's old, old blood.  Let's put some new faces in and see what they can do.

My cousin just offered me a grounds ticket for Saturday and now I just need to figure out how to get there from Las Vegas and get home Saturday night so I can get back on a plane to Disney with the family.  My admin is looking at all options for me as I type this.  I have not been to the Ryder Cup since 1991 and would love to go back.

My proposed plan:

a.  Fly to Minny - attend RC

b.  Send family on ahead to Disney

c.  meet them there and bypass trip home.  have them pack some stuff for you

Davis Love is waiting to see who steps up at the Tour Championship for his final pick.  Well, let's see what the Ryder Cup picks are doing after the 2nd Round:

 

D. Johnson       leading at -7

J. Spieth           Even par

B. Snedeker         +1

M. Kuchar            +2

P. Reed                +3

JB Holmes           +4

Phil                      +6

J. Walker             +8

Rickie                  Failed to qualify

Z. Johnson          Failed to qualify

B. Koepka           Failed to qualify

 

Who could Love pick?

 

Furyk                    Failed to qualify

Bubba                   +5

Berger                   +3

J. Thomas             -1

R. Moore               -2

K. Chappell           -6

 

Yep!!  Looks like the Team USA is rounding into form (read sarcasm).  Play starts next week.  Who should Love pick?  Yes, I know that there are 2 more rounds to play, but so far I'd pick one of the guys that break par by Sunday.  At least they are playing well.

We don’t stop playing the game because we get old; we get old because we stop playing the game.”

It would be awesome!  Don"t know if he'd be any good at this point, but it sure as hell would bring in the ratings and make for some excitement...

Based on his play this weekend, Ryan Moore should be the last pick, IMO. I thought he should have been a Captain's pick already.

If Moore isn't the pick then waiting this long is an absolute joke. He played his ass off today.
