  1. Have been traveling, but there is a lot I want to download on: Furyk was the goat here. I never got the impression he had command of this team - the Euros wanted to win for Bjorn and there was zero evidence the Americans we "playing for Furyk" in any way. It was more like "Jim and friends" and they played with little passion. We will likely never know the reason Spieth/Reed was broken up, but if we believe Justine Reed's tweet (no matter what you think of her), and Spieth's bromance with JT, it was Spieth that forced the move. I get wanting to fulfill what is probably a lifelong
  2. There is no upside to pairing Tiger/Phil - all the pressure is on them and if they lose it would be a huge boost to the Euros. Not even taking into account that Phil is playing like dog balls and Tiger doesn't need someone he's beaten for 20 years telling him how to read a putt.
  3. That guy that made the putt to win $100 off Rose is a Legend - I can't even imagine having that story to tell. Love may also be the worst at pairings - Spieth/Reed was a no-brainer, but why would you play Phil in Foursomes?
  4. Rory is potentially transcendent enough that he can carry the mantle going forward - anyone with a legitimate chance of catching Jack will be enough to carry the Tour and maintain most of the money that Tiger has pumped into the game. The only thing that would absolutely kill the tour would be if something like the LPGA Tour occurred and tournaments were dominated by Asians that did not speak English.
  5. Why only save 1 pick until after the BMW Championship? This seems to be the Billy Horschel rule, but why not just wait until then to pick all 4 guys if they want?
  6. I've been a fan since I saw this WITB last year: Bought his 3 wood off ebay for $140.
  7. Here is the current process, which is prize money based, covering all tournaments the year of the Ryder Cup plus prize money from the majors in the previous year. At closer glance, the 2014 U.S. Ryder Cup points system: • Prize money earned in the 2013 major championships (Masters, U.S. Open, Open Championship, and PGA Championship): One point is awarded for every $1,000 earned; all U.S. players making the cut will earn points. • Prize money earned in 2014 PGA Tour events, beginning Oct. 7, 2013, at the Frys.com Open through the 2014 PGA
  8. I generally thought T.Watson did a lackluster job - he seemed just a little too set in his ways and sitting Spieth/Reed on Friday Foursomes and then didn't even have an answer as to why he did that, other than "those aren't things you discuss with the press." That being said - the final was 16 1/2 to 11 1/2, meaning the US needs to flip 2 1/2 matches to be even. You can never count on anything in the Ryder Cup, but consider this: Fowler/Walker 2 up with 2 to play - they halve Reed misses a 2 footer to go 1up, they win 17 (would have ended the match) and lose 18 for a ha
  9. I really like these matchups for the US I think the pairings came out great for the US. I like the idea of getting all the rookies out in Fourballs right away and I really like that Spieth/Reed got matched up against Poulter/Gallacher. It could either be a bloodbath if the Euros get going there or a huge boost for the US if 2 rookies can slay Poulter - who, let's be honest, has been playing worse than Phil and Keegan coming. I think all 3 of those guys, however, will step their games up.
  10. I'd go Bradley, Snedeker and then a toss-up between Mahan and Simpson. Sneds has the kind of passion the team needs and can get hot with the putter and start rolling in from all over.
  11. Just want to make sure I saw this right - Heath Slocum bogeyed the last to finish 129th in the FedEx Cup rankings - with a par, he would have finished 57th. Thought I saw that before he teed off on 18. Ouch.
  12. 10 guys within 4 shots of the lead going into Sunday - does it matter if the leader is at -13 or -3? I'd rather have a setup like Valhalla where it gives guys a chance to go low early in the final round and put the pressure on the leaders rather than guys just dropping like flies.
  13. He played one 9-hols stretch under par and it was the back 9 on Friday when his back was hurting. Probably an anomaly, but Tiger still needs to hit it long. Rory hit an 8 iron into #16 when others were hitting 4 and 5 irons. That is what Tiger used to do,
