    You can count on that.
    Well we'll see about that. Today the only one that choked - besides Monty - were DiMarco

    Garcia seems to do well in the first days of tournaments and then falters as the tournament progresses.
    I don't see him ever making it over the hump, especially with any kind of consistency.

    I think the main difference between the Ryder Cup and a normal tournament is you are playing for points right from the start. If you are picked to play in both ties Friday and Saturday you could conceivably have four points in the bag before Sunday tees off with only one point left to play for, whilst in a normal tournament every thing comes down to the final day. So far Garcia has played two and won two with one match against the top two ranked players in the world, Furyk and Woods, so no major tournament wins or not you can't deny the guy's talent or temperament.

    The morning fourballs are all just about halfway around the course, and the Europeans are up in 3 of 4 matches.

    If the stupid Americans don't get their acts together soon, it'll be a blowout again. There is serious risk of a boring sunday.

    After the results of the fourballs Europe lead 7.5 to 4.5, Tiger Woods poor form continues but I have a theory on that. His wife is Swedish right? so maybe she's promised him something nice if he plays badly.


    BTW why did both teams play in almost identical clothing this morning?, it made it difficult to know who was playing at times.

    You would think the captains could have talked about not wearing the same uniforms. I found it curious as well.

    It's better now that the Europeans has changed for the foursomes.

    I think Tigers caddie just droped his 9 iron in the water, so he'll have to do without it.

    He's still up though, 1 hole over Karlson.

    Other than that the US need a miracle soon to turn this around.

    I bet you could throw away half of Tigers clubs in his bag, and he'd still be able to beat guys like us...... ;D


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    That's it. Europe wins it again.

    Now it's only about how big it's gonna be.
