The only Ryder Cup that I have actually watched and followed is 2010 at Celtic Manor. I just remember the final day was pushed to Monday so me and all my roommates skipped our morning classes (college) to watch the finish. We have been watching since like 4 am so there was no way we were going to miss the end. No too happy about the result but that's the one that sticks out to me.
Wish I could have seen '99 at Brookline, though.
