Ryder Cup!

16 posts in this topic

I know there hasn't been a lot of hype with this years Ryder Cup but I'll be watching and Rooting for the Stars and Stripes!

On paper our Team doesn't look all that great but we're at home so that should give us a glimmer of hope in what has become a regular Lambasting on the Links by the Euro's!

I'm picking an upset USA 14 1/2 Europe 13 1/2.

Go USA.... grin

I love the Ryder Cup. Nothing like making an Individual Sport a TEAM SPORT. Not to mention the fact that we have been dominated lately and the Euro"whiners" are still upset about our celebration and the big comeback from few years ago.

I just hope it is a tight race on Sunday so it gets interesting. USA...USA...USA...USA...USA

Pretty good action today. Guys were making some great putts, and some great shots as well. See the Boo-man's fairway bunker shot?? Awesome!

I loved to see that 3 "nobodys" played such a pivotal role in our winning the cup.........was tiger on the ryder cup team the last time they won it?

What a great sporting event!! What other sporting event do you see all that emotion right from the get go!! Bummer that they couldn't pull it out.... I don't quite understand why Mahan would be the final guy out... I know he had a good record last time, but I think it should have been a more veteran guy..... either way, after the whole they dug on Sunday, was nice to seem them respond.

I just hope Mahan doesnt feel like he let the team down. There were alot of opportunities before it came down to his match. Even though he chunked that chip - McDowell was most likely going to par that hole anyway - and then the match would have still been over. Its too bad though - cause thats what people will remember. I would take Mahan over some of the other guys any day. Mickelson and woods included. Mickelson and Woods dont play well on any kind of "team". Woods won a few points - but only due to Strickers great play - and Mickelson didnt do much of anything in pairs either. Then you get them alone and they both win. The europeans have the edge when it comes to playing as a team. The US needs to work on that team spirit.

I'm not blaming Mahan.... they lost the cup with their miserable Sat/Sun performance. I just think it would have been best to have an old vet, who is more accustomed to the pressure in that last slot, in case it came down to that.

I was unimpressed with Pavin and his management. I just don't think it makes sense to have Tiger in most of the 4 ball/Alternate shot portions.... he's terrible in that format. No reason to have him out there for that portion.

It is still the best golf event to watch by far.... I love the Masters as well, but the emotion at the Ryder is so neat to see....

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
