Re: 2010 Ryder Cup Thread
If these Europeans played this well in all the major tournaments, they'd dominate the world rankings. What we saw from the Europeans in this round of 6 matches was one of those anomalies you just can't explain. It's akin to the Americans at Brookline in 1999. There's no way they are THAT good.
Let's be honest, Phil and Dustin is what has killed this team. Phil made a birdie or two but also had some ugly 3 putts and played horribly overall. Dustin couldn't make 4 foot putts the entire weekend. If either of those guy play even average golf, it's probably a 1, maybe 2 point deficit.
On a positive, it's awesome to see Ricky Fowler play so well. I loved that lick when Pavin made it. It's also great to Overton rising to the occasion and beign so enthusiastic. The future Ryder Cup team is looking good.
This team really misses Anthony Kim. I see that guy as the heart and soul of the Ryder Cup teams over the next decade. They need his presence in the locker room.
As great as ink and Kuchar have been, I think the most disappointed I was was seeing them blow a 1 up lead with 2 holes to play. THAT was the proverbial nail in the coffin. There's a HUGE difference between being down 2 and 3 points heading into singles.
