Agree 100 percent, but that is also very much in his character.

Probably more exaggerate his injury  to make it look like he’s pressing through.

Thats a great team you have there. Feel a little bit for Horschel, winning the WGC matchplay event this year and finishing top10 at East Lake last week. I don't know how well he goes with the others in the team, but he deserved a shot ahead of Scheffler in my book.

Not for this course. He just doesn’t hit it far enough. Same for Na and Kisner. But Na is so solid otherwise I’d go with him over both if Man-Child Bam-Bam Brooks had to bail.

Yeah, maybe. Will probably have his PT out on hole 3 of the first match for a stretch session.

Betting odds are currently 1.6 US, 3.2 Europe

I made quite a bit of money in 2018 betting on my team (Europe); this year I see an edge for Americans, but not that much, Europe odd is very tempting

if Brooks is confirmed in the US, with the Feud and Phil as vice captain there would be a lot of pot stirring and finger pointing if something goes wrong the 1st day

I feel like the US made the exact right picks, so a good start in that way! A little concerned about Poulter getting picked ahead of Rose. Of course you can't deny Poulter's super history in the Ryder Cup. But this course would've suited Rose better, maybe this year Poulter will start to fade a bit. Hope I'm wrong! 😀

I feel like what’s overlooked in Ryder Cup stuff (Solheim, Presidents) is just how narrow the margins are. A match that goes to 18, where one player makes a putt and another misses, is a two-point swing: 15-13 could become 14-14 in ONE hole out of the however many holes played that week. If as few as two shots are different over the course of a week, 15-13 can become 13-15.

It’s match play, and it’s 18 holes or fewer. Anything can happen. John Senden can beat Tiger Woods… TWICE, for example.

Exactly and I think the whole thing about team chemistry is way overblown.  It’s whoever plays well that match.

Very true. Great post. That is why going strictly off world golf rankings doesn’t always produce a winner. Polter is on the Euro team for 1 reason only. Get them a point.

Poulter hasn't been a great Ryder Cup player for awhile.

I don't think it's a great course fit for him, either.

Poulter is undefeated in singles.  I wouldn’t play him in all matches but he is very much there to help the team. 

Meh. He's 45. And like I said, hasn't been all that great in the past several.

Brooks, I just read that article, I’m not sure he loves the Ryder Cup that much," Azinger said during an NBC Golf call with the media. "If he doesn’t love it, he should relinquish his spot and get people there who do love the Ryder Cup."

Wow. Go on, Paul … 

"Not everybody embraces it. But if you don’t love it, and you’re not sold out, then I think Brooks should, you know, especially being hurt, consider whether or not he really wants to be there."

 

The Zinger was the 2008 US Captain. He’s not the best announcer, but I agree with his take.

I too agree. I love the Ryder Cup…but honestly I can say if Brooks plays Rory..I’d easily be rooting for Rory which kinda distorts how I like the RC to be. Brooks is such a putz.

    • It's been one day. This will take a few months.
    • Day 123: Some friends visiting to share some Chanukah traditions with us tonight, so didn't have time to get much practice in. Did more "cupped wrist to left arm parallel" backswing rehearsals, and also some start of transition rehearsals to get my hat brim pointed in the right direction (slightly behind ball). No hitting balls though...I miss having daylight at 5pm. 
    • Before I answer I want to hear what Bryson has to say about it!  
    • Ok.  Got some work in today.  Working really nice with the irons.  Driver not so much.   Couldn’t consistently get comfortable at the top of the swing, and was having a tough time hitting the center of the face.   But, there were a couple times where I did get my hands up higher and with good balance and I really felt like I had more room to whip the club through. I’ll get after it this weekend.     anyways…  tried to get some video before I left and turned out to be kind of a shitty angle and zoomed in a bit or something.      think I’m making progress here and I’m sure I had some better ones where the club was more vertical while I was working on it.  But, I get a bit nervous when I video I think.  Gotta ingrain in a bit until it feels more natural.    Also… ugh..  noticed my grip got a bit strong again here.  Learn one thing, forget another..    I wonder if I’ll ever be able to put it all together.
