I think your dislike for Tiger is clouding your judgment.

Stricker "lead" just fine two years ago.

I really don’t think that’s it

I like to think that I would say the same thing no matter who it was…

Well now... great finish.  Still not happy with Woodland out there.

Well...he set up Fowler for a good approach with that awesome drive. Fowler laid an egg with that lousy 137yd push. But he made the clutch putt to tie the hole. DJ is the colossal flop.

Huge finish. Would have loved that last point. A half is what it is. 

DJ needs to sit a session. He is not looking sharp. I would sit Woodland also. Break up Reed and Simpson. Not sure who to pair those 2 with.

DJ, Woodland, Woods and DeChambeu sitting morning session. Still not sure why Reed and Simpson playing together again. 
 

 

Simpson probably the only player who’s willing to play with him.

Exactly. He drew the short straw and will be stuck with that a$$hat until singles.

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.

 

If not for Tiger, I think that the USA would likely be down 8-2 (or more, possibly).

He's played the best, most consistent golf of any US player over the past two days, imo.  I'm glad that he's healthy and playing well again.

I don't really think captaincy on the course is a big factor.  Of course, if you have a very young golfer who has never played match-play type golf, then it might help to guide them, but most golfers at this level have played enough stroke and match play that it doesn't really matter.  Plus, I do believe that seeing the scoreboard to have your captain and possibly idol for many of these golfers, leading, is more inspiration than him talking to you

Why play him at all. Sit him out. He ain't exactly on fire.

I am pretty sure the last celebration of JT-Tiger will be a meme for months.

For the moment everything is going as I planned. The international team is winning but losing points against tiger.

I’m thinking less “coaching”, and more “leading/inspiring”...

How do you 'inspire' someone to make a putt?

Playing Reed/Simpson today has been the only mistake Tiger has made.  If no one can play with Reed, maybe “Captain America” should have stayed in America.  Even if he gets another singles win, it doesn’t offset losing 3 team matches.

The same way you inspire them to catch a football, make a basket, or hit a baseball.

Generally by instilling a sense of responsibility to the greater team.  I’d argue that doing so may be even more important when trying to bring together a group of people who spend the majority of their professional career competing individually.
