Ryder Cup Redux

After all is said and done, good entertainment came through in the end. The drama of the wait was nearly interminable and hard on the capacity of nearly all TiVOs. I would think that the Golf Channel ought to get the footage and edit it to watchable fare and run it over and over for a while as from all the fans I know, it seems no one has seen it all.

Some quick hits:

USA
Corey Pavin left us all wondering what he was thinking.
Tiger Woods has proven that Steve Stricker is his go-to partner.
Steve Stricker proved again that he is a stud.
Mickleson has us scratching our collective heads yet again.
Cink for all his heroics nearly came away with top billing.
Furyk may have won PGATour POY award, but fell short for the team.
Dustin Johnson should have maybe borrowed Furyk's putter? Poor guy. A year of mightabeen.

Europe
Monty proved that he could lead, a great cap for him. Fine lad, he. Kudos
Jiminez, my #1 Euro came through for the old guys.
Fisher will be a strong future force, not a one-off.
Westwood wasa leader and a stud despite losing singles.
Luke Donald proved a worthy pick.
Remember McIlroy is just 21.
Poulter put his skills right up there with his clothes - spot on show!


Celtic Manor makes us wonder if we'll ever see a gret venue for a Ryder Cup again. Valhalla? Celtic Manor? Centenary (of all places) at Gleneagles?
