I don’t think these Cup tournaments mean that much to the US or it’s fans.  The selection process is not really made on who fits the links courses best.  You don’t need the length when you need to hit short and bounce it onto the green.  And we have no clue how to read and putt these greens.

FWIW this isn't a links course.

Okay, I officially take back everything I ever said about Patrick Reed and am now rooting for him to win us some points.

Because they're trailing or because he did something else?

Because I’m a sellout who loves America.

Colour me impressed that the Internationals are leading 4-1 at the end of the first day.  And more so that Tiger was the only one of the Americans to put up a proper fight.  Should be an interesting tournament.  I reckon the Internationals have just enough in the tank to win, especially given the 3 point lead they enjoy.

Not really accurate. Most of the matches were pretty close.

Not DJ/Woodland.

Have we forgotten how to make putts? This is not looking too good right now. 

That and they're not really putting themselves in the best spots to make putts. When you're 14' above the hole and your opponents are 9' from somewhere below the hole… advantage them, all the time, to the tune of 20+%.

I’ve got to wonder if the results would be different if the captain was completely focused on leading the team, rather than trying to play as well.

You may have a point.

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long.
