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

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?

Spieth/ Thomas looks a ridiculously strong 4some on paper, while Reed was bang average this morning. 

The Mickelson/ BD combo is bizarre though.

The only reason I can think of is Phil has been putting so well this year. Maybe the theory was Phil would carry Bryson on the green and could get them out of trouble if Bryson missed the green which he has been doing. Still I agree with you strange combo.

Another thing better in Europe - I’m watching the Ryder cup with about 5-8 mins of commercials per hour.

Tiger looks a like he needs the afternoon off. Not sure if anyone knows but I would think it would have been better to have a week in between the Tour Championship and the Ryder Cup?

Woods isn't a TEAM player and should have been missed completely. He's got a terrible Ryder Cup record. But as a European we're GLAD he's in the team. More guaranteed points for us 😁

Shouldn’t have any adverts given how much we pay for the subscription.

Meh, Phil can ride the pine IMO

I have not been impressed with Phil's performance lately either.

I got a golf channel in a HD pack so it’s about 20€ per month more for a 100 HD channels so no biggie.

I haven't seen a single ad today on my subscription. Lovely.

Great comeback from Europe, should be some good highlights on the telly tonight.

Not going to get carried away though as there is still a lot of golf still to be played .

I would like to see a koepka/Mickelson duo tomorrow. 

I’d prefer to see Phil sit out. Pretty useless. I hope this ends the ‘throw the vet a bone’ pick.

    • I never understood why FF is so popular. I think I have the 7 remake in my PS library as part of PS+. I've been meaning to try it. Tried Squadrons since it's the latest monthly game on PS+ and flying a TIE fighter is hard, only played for 20 minutes though.
    • Day 121.  While I plan to do more practice later today, I've already done some.  I hit a dozen full swings (two slow practice swings, focusing on a setup priority piece at setup and my better backswing whose picture changed recently).  6-iron, indoors, off a mat, into the net, real balls.  I also hit about two dozen chip shots (less than quarter) with my new-to-me 54 degree sand wedge.  I plan to do more work later, but I'm not sure I'll have time to post later, so I wanted to make sure I got the daily challenge part in at least. 
    • The only times I really get ticked about hitting a third shot is if I'm still closer to the tee box than I am the green.
    • Day 80 (6/24/21) -   Chipping and Putting Practice - spent about 20 minutes on the practice green with my 58* wedge spot chipping to a target (my folded golf towel) 2,3 and 4 paces from the edge of the green, then hit 3 chips each to various holes trying to get the ball to within 4 feet of the hole (which I did about half the time). Then practiced lag putting, 3 balls each to different holes trying to get within 4 feet of the hole, which I did around 2/3s of the time.  Range practice - 9-3 swings using my 7 and 8 iron and a noodle station; small bucket. Focused on keeping the club face facing the ground on the downswing and making good contact.
    • Best part about this pit stop is that they did more than the pit stops in the videos above. Not only did they change the tires, they also adjusted the front wing at the same time on both sides. All in under 2 seconds still.
