Just wanted to say well done to the USA, I thought you guys were gonna kick our asses today, 6 matches won with conviction.
Well done to the whole USA team.

Also wanted to say Wahooooooo! to Europe, nice to have the Ryder Cup back in European hands.

What a Ryder Cup that was

last ryder cup for tiger i feel. Not a team player what-so-ever. Didnt even look like he wanted to be there.

Out of a possible 4 points, Tiger got 3 and dominated out there today..Stricker/Woods/Overton were our best performers..

Disagree...He was very involved all week on the greens helping Steve Stricker out.

I'm not too big on "moral victories" so am disappointed. But the Euros played well while some of our Key guys struggled and the Euros deserved the win. They made the shots that had to be made. I was surprised at how close it was after the session 3 matches yesterday. So the USA certainly excelled at individual matches and forced the competition to go to the last match. Also have to give Monty some credit for not making any assumptions about winning early and putting the clean up hitter in last slot. I thought Tiger, Fowler, and Cink earned their Captain's Pick. Have to give Cory some credit for those three. I think we lost yesterday in session 3. Not sure why the USA seems to always struggle with team play.

Commiserations to all Americans on the board.We had the majority of the worlds top 20 at this tournament.It was meant to be this close.Apart from a couple of the match ups,particulary Tiger and Phil these matches could easily go either way because of the ability of the players on show.It ebbed and flowed over each session to both sides.It's kind of fantastic from an Englishmens point of view because of the over hyped football side from our side of the pond which was a damp squib,it's been left to the cricket boys and the golfers to lift our spirits.

Man, to only come up 1/2 point short has to be brutal - Cink could have had that yesterday or today, but it was not meant to be. I was surprised how easily Jimenez disposed of Watson today, but Fowlers 1/2 point was one for the ages.

A comparison of how the players performed.

The two most surprising data are probably Furyk and Mickelson. But they were paired with two rookies (Fowler and D.Johnson) on all the Fourballs and Foursomes. It's easier playing with Stricker than a rookie.

The Molinari brothers playing together in their first Ryder Cup was perhaps a bit much, but compared to the other rookies, I'd say they did well. Edoardo lost momentum in the last match and only got a half point against Fowler, Francesco got steamrolled by Tiger, not much to do there.

Did you watch the Ryder Cup this weekend? He was very involved, especially helping his partner reading greens. I don't see where this not a team player label is coming from.

Agreed. Didn't get a sense of him not wanting to be there by any means.

Looked involved and excited to be there just as anyone else. Also think it was great for him and the PGA Tour. I think this is what Tiger needed. A companionship and the feel of comradery will push his competitive mode much more. I expect this to really push him for the upcoming season.

Watching the US preff conference just now, why do they keep asking Mahan questions? Can't they tell he's not in a place where he would like to answer questions right now? To ask a guy in his position how it felt to be in the last group and have everything come up to you like that is just stupid.

A lot of good things being said on this preff conference, nice to see the players staying together as a group.

What cup did you watch? Tiger was one of the best players out there this week. Is your definition of a team player one that does a Poulter-like celebration after every hole won? Tiger is Tiger, he express himself the way he does. The majority of players didn't act like McIlroy and Poulter. Celebrating however you want is of course not an issue, it's about getting the ball in the hole here.

Yes, Tiger is probably a stronger individual than team player, performance wise, but you don't walk on his shadow all day long. You don't follow him after the rounds, talk to him during the round. How can you say he's not a team player, based only on TV pictures? Tiger isn't happy when his game is not there, so he didn't put on the smile all day long. He is a golfer out there to play golf, staying focused and determined is how he plays golf.

    • You’re right. @onthehunt526 didn’t realize how bad the lie was (see above where he quoted the app indicating “first cut” when it wasn’t), so I think that’s where he was going with that statement. I mean, he’s right, if the lie wasn’t as bad as he thought. 
    • Day 3: Did more of the same stuff working on backswing priority piece, with LVP camera. Bought a net that’s supposed to go up/down easy, and measured my mat to cut it down to more portable strips for new practice area. 
    • You may as well say that not trying to carry a ball 370m over water on a par 5 isn't going to win you the tournament if you need eagle to win. Are you seriously suggesting that Oosthuizen does not realise that 3 is better than 4 and that  4 doesn't win? So...in a press conference you would ask him why he laid up and he'd say "I had a better chance of holing out from 80 yards than making a putt like I did on Saturday"? Come on. There is no hypothetical scenario here. He did all he could do. 
    • I forgot how he reacted to the eventual birdie.  Probably the most disappointed "I just made a birdie on the 72nd hole of the U.S. Open" ever.
    • Yeah, I agree. He would’ve went for it  if it was in the first cut, sitting up, or in the fairway—no question. If you put it in the drink from there, at least you went with the right shot under the circumstances and tried to win the tournament. He probably doesn’t eagle though because it would’ve been so hard to stop the ball on that green. But then again, maybe he makes the Tiger putt from the back of the green (not the “expect anything different” putt).
