Yep. For the most part, I think it was more a case of Euros playing very well rather than US player's choking. But Furyk and Stricker were the opposite of clutch.
Watson, Simpson, and Bradley would have been upsets to win. Phil lost because Rose hit a 35 foot birdie bender on 17. Snedeker losing was probably an upset but that was cancelled by Zach Johnson beating Graham McDowell.
Tiger would have won a point had it mattered, but he conceded so the Euro's could get on with their celebration.
Basically it came down to Furyk blowing a 1 up with two to play, and Stricker missing two shots knowing he had to make at least one of them.
