Just heard that Faldo is benching Sergio and Lee Westwood for tomorrow's opening round.

Poor Oliver? Doesn't bug me.

I think Faldo's off his rocker. I'm sticking to my guns on this one, but the results are on my side.

Yeah, that's what I figured (I was never closer than about two hours behind live watching coverage today), but it's still annoying. I wonder how much longer they plan to show this Viking crap.

Hahaha, feel like you're watching the Nationwide Tour ehhh?

Oh yeah Lluie, Faldo pulling Serg is a head scratcher!!

Note: I deleted my original post when I realized there was a whole thread on Saturday's pairings.

No matter, my point is made and stands.

(Missed an L.) I know! He claims he wants "fresh legs." Um, Nick?...

Phil and Kim celebrated way to early,... they lost their focus,...

They had that blow up hole on 7 or 8, can't remember. Ever since then, it was downhill from there.

I think Sergio just had an aneurysm on the eighth hole. At least that's what I remembered a burst blood vessel sounding like. Stricker matched his birdie putt, but Garcia just woke up, and the Stricker/Curtis pairing had better be prepared for him on the back nine.

Southern Hospitality got away with one on the ninth. Boo and J.B. both missed short birdie putts, then watched Hansen miss his from even closer. Westwood and Hansen are 2 down heading into the gauntlet.

Has anyone not used the island fairway on the seventh this weekend?

Southern Hospitality picks up the first point of the afternoon, 2&1, breaking Lee Westwood's 12-match unbeaten streak. The Swedes just squared their match with Mickelson and Mahan in part to the latters lip-out of a short birdie putt to halve at 13. Curtis and Stricker are tied with Garcia and Casey with three to go, and Poulter/McDowell are holding onto a one-hole lead by a thread over Perry/Furyk. The matches still on the course are too close to call.

The outcome of key putts on 18 have turned this toward the USA. Europe has missed at least 3 putts in the 10-18 foot range on 18 that would have meant an additional half point, Harrington and McDowell on Friday and Karlsson today. Then today Stricker steals a half point for the USA with the clutch uphill birdie putt from the fringe on 18.

I was rooting for 8.5 to 7.5 heading into Sunday. That would have meant both sides needed at least a split of the 12 available points. Now the USA can win with 5.5 while Europe needs 7.

And Leonard missed one. So did Furyk.

I don't think the 18th has gone the U.S.'s way this Ryder Cup. They came to the 18th winning a few matches that resulted in halves, sometimes after one or both players splashed down. The 7th hasn't gone for the U.S. either. I've never seen so many balls in the water or so many balls hit left of a 30-yard-wide fairway.

    • Speaking of 4:30 POP, if someone plays in five hours, that is fast, and if someone plays in three hours, that is slow. When you have had to deal with 6 hour rounds, 4:30 seems like a reasonable compromise. When I'm marshaling, it is not "recommended", it is the maximum allowed (in my  mind). 😁 In our case, there is some rhyme and reason to 4:30, but you'll have to follow me . . . .  Each of our first four sets of four holes has a par 3, a Par 5, and two Par 4s.  Bobby Clampett consulted on the course design, and the Par 3 are paced at 12 minutes, the Par 4s at 15 minutes, and the Par 5s at 18 minutes.  Figure that out and you will see the each set of four holes in 1 hour.  17 & 18 are Par 4s, so that's another 1/2 hour, and, Wallah!, 4:30. (PS:  I'm then only one left of the early employees who knows that.) It's really easy to marshal when you get that four-holes-an-hour ingrained in your brain, but it's amazing how many brains are not ingrainable. BTW, unless I'm really have a good round, if I'm stuck in a 4:30 round, I normally go in.  One day this year on the tenth tee I looked at the other guys and said, "Looks like rain.  Bye."  I'm sure it rained somewhere that day. How many of you have marshaled a tough course on a busy day?
    • If you have administrator access, you can see the entire history, but the rest of the world can't.  I have access as my club's handicap committee chair, and the pro shop does as well, but that's all as far as I know.  Rank and file golfers can't go any further back than the 12 month history available in the phone app.  Apparently I can look up the complete history for anyone, as long as I know their name.  
    • Last week had two birdies.  Not sure which was the better shot, but here goes. 1) PW from about 110 or so and put it pin high within about 3 to 4 feet and make the putt. 2) nGIR, probably around 5-10 yards from the green.  Chip in for birdie
    • Wow!  Thanks! I've been on Internet forum for 20 years, and I can count on one hand how many times I've seen someone actually compliment someone for their comments. So, kudos to you. 😁
    • Hmm, I could of swore several years back I was in the Golf shop and our pro pulled my history. Maybe the MAGA Assoc. is different? I can check the next time at the club. I could be mistaken, wouldn't be the first time...
