Go Team USA!!!
I can't think of many times I enjoyed watching golf more that this. A few that are close:
1999 Ryder Cup: I watched the entire day Sunday and THAT was freaking awesome.
1997 Masters : it wasn't close at all, but seeing the coronation of Tiger Woods is something I'll never forget.
2000 PGA (also at Valhalla):Tiger Woods. Bob May. 'nuf said.
2005 Masters: I was watching this on the big screen at the student lounge fro my grad school program. It was right around finals and a bunch of folks were there studying. About the last hour, about 40 people congregated around the TV to watch Tiger down the stretch. "The Shot" on #16 was unreal. when it looked like it was going in, every started to yell, then when it looked like it stopped short, everyone collectively exhaled, followed by the explosion after it fell. It was awesome.
2007 Deutsche Bank - About the only time Tiger and Phil battled it out down the stretch of a tourney. Phil won by two strokes shooting a 5 under par to win the tournament. That was exciting on Labor Day.
This one might take the take. I'm still blown away by the quality of the golf played. The Europeans played very well, so it's not like they US took advantage of poor play by the Euros.
