Match play is fun to watch. Instead of minimizing-your-losses shots, you get the go-for-broke shots. Different mind set and a different kind of player really.
I admire Miguel Jiménez for conceding that putt to Jim Furyk to win the whole deal. He kinda hesitated, but then shook hands.
What's really amazing to me is how things change so quickly in golf.
Two years ago, after the 2nd blowout defeat, people looked at the European team and said, "Man, they may not lose for 10 years." Europe had all the young stars, David Howell, Paul Casey, Henrik Stenson, and Sergio. While Darren Clarke and Monty provided ample leadership, it was the young guys who were clearly asserting themselves.
Now look at this US team, Anthony Kim, Boo Weekly, Hunter Mahan, when Tiger comes back he'll only be 32. Heck Leonard's only 36 and is playing the best golf of his career. Phil is 38 and is still a top 10 level player, if not top 5.
