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....

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
