Well played team Europe, and well done Bjorn who obviously knows his stuff better than most of us give him credit for. Great tournament 👍

There is a classic management mistake known as "hoping for A while rewarding for B." As you note, we hope that our players will perform well on one type of course, while we select them based on their

I think the posts about it being an exhibition and players not caring is sour grapes.  The players care (especially the younger guys)  they just lost.  No excuses about it they just need to play bette

Sergio ffs what are you doing???? Fairways and greens, fairways and greens. 

LOL, winning a hole with a bogey. 

BTW, I don't think anyone thought Bubba would get beaten worse than Phil today. 

LOL, Ricky pushing all his shots into the water now.

The handicap of having to take a player to France who can't seem to play good golf outside of the US (preferably the South).

And the foolishness of picking a fading superstar a couple of years away from the Champions' Tour.

That’s it then. Think Bjorn was pretty smart for putting Molinari and Stenson down there.

Mickelson what a stinker! Furyk will cop a load of stick for him playing like an orange.

This was a perfect storm against the US squad- bad play, bad captain-ing, and a course that we were really poorly suited for. 

Let’s just hope Phil and Bubba don’t somehow manage to eek on the 2020 team.

I wouldn't put much of this on Furyk. Even the in form players couldn't deliver. What's he going to do about that? This isn't football that requires constant play calling. There are no major lessons IMO, just disappointments. 

Euros showed up. Hats off to them. See you in 2020.

This isn’t about the captains. They can’t play for players.

It’s not only about the captains but Furyk deserves his fair share of criticism here. Inevitably it’s the players that lost it but Furyk made some indefensible decisions along the way and for that he should be criticized.

Agree. The only decision I think he may catch some heat for is the Phil pick. Other than that, hindsight is 20/20 with his matchups and pairings. But most of the players didn’t have it this week and I don’t think changing things up or playing Webb more like Johnny said he should have done would have changed the final outcome. Europe was just better. They kicked our butt. 17.5 to 10.5 is a butt whooping that's on the whole team, not just a player or two. Plain and simple.

    • Day 67, July 31, 2021 More three-quarter swing stuff today. I really am trying to shorten the backswing.
    • What a shot into 18 with all that pressure.  Great playing Xander.
    • One of the people who introduced me to golf in the first place would regularly do things that are generally bad etiquette:  try to make me mad during the round, talk during my swing, etc.  The good news is that now, when someone does things like making noise while I'm swinging my accident, it doesn't annoy me unless they're trying to mess me up (which no one has done, at least to my knowledge).
    • In OK, schools are not legally allowed to require masks, even for those who are too young to get vaccinated.  😞 I'm glad to hear that the vaccine can make keys stick to your head.  Maybe it will work on the five simple keys from a while back?  
    • And almost as if Florida is trying to double down on it, -->   Being a resident of SW Missouri, I guess I shouldn't throw stones.  It's almost like they're having a competition, except they've forgotten that LSW.
