Just doesn’t seem natural to me, but hey I’ll get over it. I guess it’s just the way it is now.

It doesn't surprise me any more, but I'd feel like an ass cheering for a Red October.

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

Featured match on CBS is the the DJ/RF vs. JR/HS but I think the JT/JS vs FM/TF seems like it would be a fun match to watch. THey all did well in the 1 session and are playing with a bit of fire in their bellies.

Is it a good idea to match the rookie Bryson with the shaky Phil?

I didn't like that duo, I always thought Bryson was hit or miss this year. When he is on it looks good but when he is off it seems really bad. 

Wow USA can't buy a put this afternoon.

I wish the teams had two distinct colored shirts. A lot of guys wearing the dark blue shirts. Throws me off a bit at first glance. Not a huge deal would just like to see some color disparity.

Yea... agree. At first glance I look at the pants. USA in white, Euro in dark.

Couldn’t ask for a better pair for the under pressure Garcia and the rookie Noren to play against.

looks good for Europe right now, but anything less than 3 and a half points from this afternoon would be disappointing. Can’t risk letting them back.

Phil and BD pairing makes no sense. BD approaches the game like a robot and tries to approach every shot scientifically (literally). Why would you pair him out n alternate shot with a guy who is a total free wheeler on the course?  Fourball would be one thing, but alternate shot is just stupid. Also why no Reed/Spieth pairing?

    • I'm also excited to see the Diablo 2 remaster when it comes out. Definitely spent a lot of time on D1 and D2, as well as Warcraft and Starcraft, back in the day.
    • Thanks for the explanations @saevel25 and @ncates00. I'll try and spin it up this weekend.
    • Does Phil's Ryder Cup record make a statement saying "I am the 3rd best player of all time"?  https://www.rydercup.com/news-media/phil-mickelsons-ryder-cup-career-record  
    • They're good games, if you like classic RPG's. I did when I was a kid. I loved FF, Pokemon, Legend of Dragoon, Suikoden, Dragon Quest, and several others when I was growing up. The gameplay used to be classic RPG stuff with some cool, at the time, graphics. Great stories and character development as well. You come to really like and attach to the characters. Some of them are more medieval in nature, while others are more futuristic. I like both settings to be honest. The games are definitely more linear/on the rails, but many of them have several optional side quests.  It's hard for me to rank them because I like a lot of them in different ways. Although, admittedly I'm not really a fan of the games after 10. Maybe part of that is my life getting busier post-10 or maybe I just grew out of them. However, 7-10 are probably my favorites, but I also really enjoyed 4, 6, and TACTICS. I have not played 7R. I don't play to do so. The game looks cool, but I'm not a fan of the big changes they made to the game's storyline. Maybe that's just the nostalgia kicking in, but I like for things to stay pretty much in line with traditional canon, but I also get that they want to bring in new audiences and not just make the same game, too. I do like how beautiful it looks and how the gameplay looks though. The gameplay sort of reminds me of an update of Dragon Age or KOTOR even. I'd like to hear @saevel25's take, if he'd like to share, on 7R. You seem like a FF "old head" lover of the old games (especially given your love of 9--one of my all-time faves) who came to enjoy 7R, so maybe you can convince me to give it a shot. I may have said this previously, but I have 7, 8, and 9 on my phone. Here's hoping 10 finally makes it to iOS one day. I'm very surprised by this. But there are fans of this game for some reason haha
