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

Why would you pair up one of your best players (so far) to play against RM? I would have saved Reed for a later match up.

Having Reed play Rory is a bad matchup decision by Davis. Rory would beat anyone, and Reed would beat everyone else.

I'm not crazy about these pairings either, a hot Rory beats a hot Reed, seems like we're wasting a guaranteed win for Reed against anyone else.

 

:whistle:

In all seriousness, this is why you just put your order together, and let them play. Can't stress too much about possible pairings (also, they don't actually control pairings).

Hats off to Reed, played like a true champion!  Wonder what to expect next year?  I think big things!

Soup to Nuts, Patrick Reed is the best US golfer, Davis Love knows this......

Me too, and our wish has been granted, I think Rory is possibly one of only a few eu players who could take reed down in his current form, I expect reed to fight like a dog with the crowd fully behind him, but ultimately he'll be tamed by a superior player.

im more interested into who roars the loudest and pops a blood vessel first!

I find golf in general has become a putting contest, they're all capable hitting huge drives and great iron shots, it's seems to be the best putts wins

Ultimately Reed will be tamed by the Superior Rory... Really... because I'm curious Hardballs, how does that taste? :beer:

Best Ryder Cup US player anyway.  It was an epic match.  I'd take Reed and Phil anyday on my team.  Phil just keeps playing amazing golf at 46.

I really hope more golf fans start embracing Reed; the dude is a serious gamer and I really don't think he's nearly as bad of a guy as people like to think. He made a stupid comment three years ago (I can only imagine the dumb stuff I would have said as a rich and hugely talented 23 year old) but I think it's time people move on from that.

Agreed.  Many other golfers have done far worse and contiue to be embraced

It will be interesting to see how Westwood chokes away a 2-up lead.

Ha ha. He  is about to blow 16, although Moore hit an absolute corker.

 

Fresh off the press - Fowler delivers!! yay..

Koepka destroys Willett. 0-3 first RC for DWil...feel kinda bad for the guy given the circumstances but happy that it should shut up his idiot brother for awhile.

Wow! I really thought Rory would take something off Reed, but Reed was the man of the whole tournament, amazing golf I didn't realise he was capable of!

also rookie pieters for eu was a class act and very impressive.

 the standard of golf from both teams were outstanding and it's been the best sporting event I've seen in quite a while, Unfortunately for me, it appears over now as far as EU are concerned, so congratulations USA, you deserve it!?

    • I have encountered much reluctance to play by USGA rules that make the game "too hard". Examples are no automatic two-putts on temporary greens, balls that are lost because they embedded are still lost, bare ground is not GUR, mud is not temporary water, penalty relief area may be on a cart path, no relief from divots, no relief from boundary fence, no line of play relief from immovable obstructions, etc. 
    • Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed the read. Playing your own game is important.  Many years ago, there was a woman at my home club who would play from the blue tees, hit her drives about 230, and would shoot in the high 70s/low 80s.  It was fun being paired with her because... well, playing with good players is always fun, but I also enjoyed watching men who couldn't handle being outdriven by her try to hit the ball further, mostly unsuccessfully.  I knew I couldn't compete with her for distance (and I don't think I was ever competing against her anyway), but that really helped.  As for the safe shot vs correct shot, I think the driver is the right club a lot more often than many think it is.  Fairways hit are overrated in most golfers' minds and distance from the tee is underrated as a contributor to scoring.  
    • No problem, thx for letting me know.
    • That is not correct. The maximum penalty per round for more than 14 clubs is 4 strokes. See rule 4.1b.
