Ryder Cup A-Go-Go
When reading the title of this article by Alan Bastable about the USA Ryder Cup team, I first expected it to be a touch lame. Oh, US-Eh, haha, I see what you did there.
To be honest though, it's one of the funnier things I've read in MSM golf journalism in a while.
Honestly, is there a better way to explain the woes our Ryder Cup team is in than just to present the extremely weak team resume?
Kenny Perry (zero winning matches in his only Ryder Cup appearance), Phil Mickelson (sometimes changes equipment weeks before the event), Stewart Cink (if second place paid something at the Ryder Cup, he'd be the man to bank on)?
I hate to go ahead and toss myself off the Ryder Cup express before it even begins out of the station, but you'd have to think this is our worst group of guys ever, right?
You've heard me trash talk him before, but I think Davis Love III, if he could do something over the next couple of months, might be a decent captains pick.
He's got a ton of experience, has played on six Ryder Cup teams and might bring a veteran feel to a team that could be a ton of Cup virgins.
I guess with that, you could also say bringing Jack Nicklaus might not be a bad idea, and the way DLIII has played the last couple of years, it might be a touch more sensible.
