I'm not really sure what your big hangup with this is.  The Ryder Cup is a team event (and an exhibition with no money on the line mind you).  Do you not cheer when your favorite football/soccer team'

On another note, when is the PGA going to wake up to picking US venues that may favor the American squad a little more from a weather standpoint? Basically the entire team lives in South Florida and v

Patrick Reed can say this much for sure without sounding arrogant in the slightest bit - this was the top 5 greatest performance in the history of RC.. Anything one can say about him taking down

Morning foursomes.

Surprised by Koepka / Snedeker, but maybe a paring along the lines of Walker / Zach in the first session? Europe looks to be doing similar by breaking up Rose / Stenson to shelter their shorter / weaker players a bit. If they play Saturday afternoon, will those two be a little weary come Sunday?

 

That's probably the best use of players Clarke could have gone for. i doubt he'll be in the position to rest more than one of Garcia/Rose/Stenson/Mcilroy for the afternoon.

With Kaymer and Westwood so out of sorts, it's really up to those big guns and the rookies to carry us through. Paul Casey or an in form G-Mac would be a nice addition right now.

Mickelson and Fowler (team GPS) have no business playing foursomes. DL3 has got to stop listening to everything Phil says. Neither one of these guys should be playing in the afternoon.

On another note, I love this Snedeker/Koepka team.

Rory is a Huge Douche,

I've always been pretty indifferent when it comes to Rory but he really has been conducting himself like a DB this week. Screaming at the fans after your partner makes a 3 footer to halve the hole. Give it a rest dude

He's taken on the role of the heel since Ian Poulter isn't playing.  It's out of character for Rory, as he usually prefers to be the quiet nice guy, but Clarke may have asked him to be a leader.

Um... He's reacting to douchebaggery they are experiencing from the idiots in the crowd. I think he's justified in how he's reacting.

I don't think so, I think he's just sick of the stupid comments and actions of the people in the crowd. Possibly he's a bit more upset because he's usually so well liked here? Either way, I don't have a problem with the way he's reacting, I have a problem with the fact that people are actually being such assholes in the crowd.

Fair enough. I suppose if it were on the US side I wouldn't mind it, but to me it just feels a bit contrived to try and compensate for his 'exhibition' comments he made about the RC years ago. But I think you're probably right.

I just wish a real US team were playing against Rory and not the mess of a Phil-Fowler team.

What are the crowds doing that you disagree with?

I believe Phil and Rory were sacrificed to take on a hot Rory / Pieters team just as the Euro's sacrificed Stenson and Fitzpatrick

Have you not heard stupid things like, cheering on balls going in the hazards, or even the most recent thing where someone yelled when Pieters was setting up to putt? I've noticed multiple instances of these types of things yesterday. There's no place for that sort of behavior in my opinion.

 

**Edit** I will concede that it seems to be a bit better today than it was yesterday, but it's still quite early. Hopefully stays better and keeps improving.

    • @alexschoI would suggest a UW to fill the gap between the PW and SW. If you're a high handicap, I'm not sure you need a 58 degree wedge.  Your priority on short game shots isn't "get it close" (but that's great if you can), but rather "get the ball on the green;  within spots on the green, priority is to spots close to the hole."  But I wouldn't just now use a club that many high handicappers usage tends to risk leaving themselves with yet another short game shot.
    • Good luck.  Make sure you know the rules, of course;  people can and do get casual with the rules during non-tournament play.  Make sure you know what local rules are in effect, too;  you don't want to Jerry Rice yourself out of a tournament if, for example, laser range finders aren't allowed but you use one. 
    • 87 today at my home course.  Hit 4 GIR:  holes 1, 17, and 18, but only one in between (#8, a 4-wood into the wind to about 15', had a tap-in par on that one).
    • Day 151.  Tournament at my home course today.  I shot an 87 with 4 GIR and 7 near-GIR.  Now that I write that out, I feel my long game was better than that stat line today, but I guess not.  I did some full swing practice before the round, outdoors at the range, checking my backswing length as per my past month or so of work.
    • Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today.  I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it.  I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green.  I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung.  Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too. Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too.  Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞
