The Americans are bringing back Tom Watson as their Ryder Cup captain with hopes of ending two decades of losing in Europe.
Adding to the intrigue of the announcement is whether the PGA of America will stick to its prototype of a former major champion who still plays on the PGA Tour, or whether it will look farther into its past to find its latest captain.
It is no lie that Phil Mickelson has had some pretty incredible losses in his career. But, according to Mickelson, the 2012 Ryder Cup might have been one of the toughest.
According to a report, Tiger Woods pulled Brandt Snedeker, Webb Simpson, Jason Dufner and Keegan Bradley aside and apologized for his performance at Medinah.
Tiger Woods hopes to captain the U.S. Ryder Cup team someday. He still plans to play in a few more before that happens.
No matter the nationality or handicap or interest in golf, almost everyone can agree on is that golf needs more team events. Bottom line, it needs to happen.
Europe equaled the largest comeback in history on Sunday, overcoming a 4-point deficit to win the Ryder Cup on Sunday when it looked like the U.S. would win the event in a walk.
Watson and Simpson birdied seven of their first eight holes, and their lone par – on No. 2 – was still good enough to win the hole.
Even with Tiger Woods struggling, the Americans managed a tie in the first session of the Ryder Cup.
Mickelson is the most experienced player on the U.S. team, playing in every Ryder Cup team since 1995. The four-time major champion has a record of 11-17-6 in the Ryder Cup.
The Europeans are making a run at the Ryder Cup and have an early 2-0 lead.
Oh stop it with all this “The replacement refs will leave a stain on this season.” In Green Bay, maybe. But I’m thinking the Packers are good enough to overcome 1 game.
