    2010 Ryder Cup

    Furyk is a battler, but it was a fairly rough cup for him. The last Sunday session drubbing the EUROS applied makes it all seem tough. The rain giveth to the Americans on Friday/Saturday and the EURO squad and change of format taketh away. For match-play the trailing player would rather have a tough par 4 that could be won with a par, because on a par 5 players at this level are probably both going to make birdie to halve the hole and eagles are so rare even if the par 5 were to be a short one.

    At this point it would require a miracle to overcome session 3. Fowler is toast, and Watson would have to scratch out a half against the plucky hard nosed Jimenez or Mahan having to win the anchor match outright to make it 14 to 14 for the "infamous" retaining the cup.

    It's been a nice charge, but seems to be running out of steam as Europe's vice on this cup tightens. Furyk would need to eke out a half by winning the 18th against Donald on a Par 5. Mahan would have to turn around his anchor match and beat McDowell. Valiant but it looks like it's on the Illinois in 2 years.

    1 hour and that RyderCup.com projected score hasn't budged, still 16 to 12. That 3 point earned by the EUROS dominance in session 3 including that half point in that last alternate shot match is just so suffocating. Furyk somehow has got to find a way to scratch out a half against Donald. Overton got to win his match and Fowler or Mahan has to either get a come from behind win or both scratch out halves. The European four-ball dominance, oh what an advantage and the one thing U.S. captains haven't figured how to counter that yet.

    With the current deficit, slots 5 to 8 as of 7:06 am is going to do the U.S. chances. Multiple 2 downs with the rookies struggling (like the EURO rookies did in 1997 Valderrama) and Woods in his singles match. In 2008 the U.S. Rookies carried the day with Kim, Mahan, Weekley, Holmes, Stricker and Curtis. Stricker made the Cup team as a captain and contributed in the team sessions but lost in singles. A relative "rookie" in his 40s. Weekley is a good iron player in his 30s with a relaxed attitude in the room playing well that year but it may have been his only Ryder Cup appearance. Curt

    Europe leads 9.5 to 6.5 Europe needs 5 points to win cup U.S. needs 7.5 points to retain cup. Besides the unlikely comeback at Brookline 1999, the biggest deficit overcome is 2 points at Oak Hill 1995. Considering the way the American played the third session it seems unlikely they will run the table. However 7-4-1 has been done multiple times before by teams by both sides. Here is my hypothetical US singles order: 1. Z. Johnson, 2. Overton, 3. Mahan, 4. Mickleson | 5. Furyk, 6. Fowler, 7. Woods, 8. Cink | 9. D. Johnson, 10. Stricker, 11. Watson, 12. Kuchar.

    If the American can rally and make the final team session score 8 to 8 then here is my hypothetical singles order for Europe (based on past European captain practices.) 1. Westwood, 2. McIlroy, 3. E. Molinari. 4. Kaymer 5. R. Fisher, 6. Poulter, 7. McDowell, 8. Donald 9. Jimenez, 10. Harrington, 11. F. Molinari, 12. P.

    First, the bad news for the US squad: European leads in all 6 matches with Stricker/Woods & Z. Johnson/Mahan getting their doors blown off. The good news for the US squad is: the sun wet down. Basically the American's chances rest with Furyk/D. Johnson (1 down thru 8) and Cink/Kuchar (1 down thru 5) to turn those blue EURO flags to RED. If that were to happen the score going into singles would then be: US 8, EURO 8. At that point: Europe would needs 6.5 points to win the cup. US would needs 6 points to retain the cup From an objective point of view that

    http://www.thegolfchannel.com/shag-bag/ RANDALL MELL, Senior Writer, GolfChannel.com Posted 10/01/2010, 11:15 AM EST NEWPORT, Wales – Ryder Cup play is scheduled to resume at 5 p.m. local time (noon, ET) today at Celtic Manor. With the 7-hour and 15-minute suspension of play due to rain, the Ryder Cup almost certainly will be pushed into Monday, though Ryder Cup officials have yet to actually confirm that. No matter how much rain continues to fall, the Ryder Cup must end no later than sunset on Monday (6:43 p.m.) by captain’s agreement. Any matches that have not been completed
