    Spectator loses eyesight at Ryder Cup

    Yea I agree there. A lot of times their play is to even hit the ball OVER the gallery and not just down the gap they created and lined up both sides over. I don’t think I’d ever want to stand there... these guys are good but not immune to hitting a skull or downright awful shot It was in Columbus, 2002, and it was a 13 year old girl. But like you said, it takes a serious accident for something to be done. Baseball even has a lot more netting than it ever used to.

    Spectator loses eyesight at Ryder Cup

    I was at the Travelers Championship this year when Russell Henleys errant 2nd shot on a par 5 on the front 9 started coming our way on sunday. I was near the green and he was in the fairway well back, I could just see him hit and when I saw the flight path of the ball I knew it was coming for us lol, so I told my friends I was with to watch out and I also heard the marshall right near us yell “incoming guys everyone heads up!”. So if there were nearby marshalls along the fairway lines as there usually are I would hope they were yelling. As it was said you can’t really hear the player yell it with all the other noise from the crowd and whatnot. When Henley came walking towards his ball the first words out of his mouth were “is everyone ok did I hit anybody?????” And we assurred him nobody was hit. I can’t imagine what an awful feeling it would be as a player to hit someone and I’m sure Koepka feels terrible and will feel worse when he finds this out. I feel terrible for this fan. But we also must keep in mind that while spectators get hit an incident like this is extremely rare and one of the hazards of attending pro sporting events.

    Typical Team USA Ryder Cup choke job going on. Can’t hit fairways, missing tap in putts like it’s our job while Europe drains 20 footers like they’re gimmes and never misses a fairway. What a joke.

    So, no Spieth and Reed pairing, at least not in the first set of matches. Interesting considering their past success as a team. I hate the time difference when we’re in Europe, I’m not gonna get home from work until 4:30 tomorrow afternoon, this sucks!!!!!!!

    Alright, throw Bradley out of the picture entirely, I’m standing by my opinion that Spieths play THIS YEAR and this year ALONE do not give us the best chance to win the Ryder Cup, especially not compared to the level of play displayed by literally everyone else on the team who made it on points. If you do not agree thats fine, I’ll love it if he proves me wrong, my confidence level isn’t there with the game he’s showed this year.

    Incorrect again, I said Jordans putting this year has been beyond bad, and that Bradley has played well lately, aside from a bad final round a couple weeks ago he also was in the lead going into the final round. I asked the question as to whether or not Jordans current level of play gives us the best chance to win the Ryder Cup. History aside, his greatness aside, based strictly on his play this season as a whole. 1 good tournament? The stats iacas brought up aside, Bradley has made more cuts than Jordan this year, had more top 10’s, and also has Ryder Cup experience with a solid record... even better than Jordans (granted a slightly smaller... not by much, sample size). I fail to see why I am so crazy to ask the question... does Jordans level of play this year give us the best chance to win?

    Paulina Gretzky and Dustin Johnson Break Up?

    A lot of people (not me) but this is the kind of stuff journalists salivate over lol, because everyone loves a big juicy break up of a famous couple.

    No I think it’s because Spieth has gone from being “best putter in the world” to ranked worse than 130th. Thats quite a drop. And again, it’s not like Jordan just had a bad month or two, with the exception of a couple weeks here and there (of course he’s going to have those, he IS one of the best players in the world, I would never deny that being a big Spieth fan) he’s had a VERY bad year. I’m standing by my opinion, his play this year does not give us the best chance to win in the Ryder Cup. Heres to hoping he proves me wrong No, its you absolutely refusing to admit that Jordan has had a pretty awful year and I’m strictly talking about what game of his he’s gonna bring to the Ryder Cup... Jordan of old? Or Jordan of 2018?

    Debating with you is absolutely pointless. You’re absolutely right Jordan has had a hell of a season for the 10th ranked player in the world as you like to point out. I know I always expect the 10th ranked player in the world to miss as many cuts as have top 10’s. He also started the season #2 in the world and dropped all the way to #10 and if he doesn’t get it together quickly starting next year he’ll keep dropping.

    Keegan is currently a hot hand, Jordan not so much, Bradley is getting his game back, his stats will be on the rise, Jordan... well, right now, I guess he can’t get much worse but he hasn’t shown much save for a few tournaments here and there. Again, hoping he proves me wrong, but Jordan has been bad this year and my opinion is his current form is a liability
