The November skins games were more thrilling than this stuff. Ryder Cup has no money on offer for the 'athletes', rather like college football. What about the Prez Cup? Any money for winning? If not, we need to question what these guys are doing, and why. To me, it's all hype, branding and marketing; no real sport. These guys are professionals, not amateurs, and are motivated, driven and measured by $$$$$$$$.
Pretty sure you have a minority opinion. We have meaningful golf in September and now October. And I've seen how much even Presidents Cup matches matter to players… they have money. Money doesn't motivate as much as simply wanting to win can. For your team. Your country. Yourself.
