If Team USA’s performance is any indication of what’s to come from the Americans in the coming years tournaments, we are in for something special. The USA wins the 43rd Ryder Cup at Pete Dye’s gem on Lake Michigan in overwhelming fashion 19-9. Maybe it’s just me, but when Team USA wins, it’s just feels better all together. I think it’s better for the game of golf than any other individual major, other than maybe The Masters. While I don’t feel this was a “authentic” Ryder Cup in the sense that many international fans weren’t able to travel to the US to support Team Europe in person, anyone who watched the television broadcast should clearly understand the uniqueness of this event to the game of golf and sports in general.
Here’s how it played out on Sunday:
Schauffele (U.S.) vs. McIlroy (Europe) — 3&2
Cantlay (U.S.) vs. Lowry (Europe) — 4&2
Scheffler (U.S.) vs. Rahm (Europe) — 4&3
DeChambeau (U.S.) vs. Garcia (Europe) — 3&2
Morikawa (U.S.) vs. Hovland (Europe) — TIE
Johnson (U.S.) vs. Casey (Europe) — 1UP
Koepka (U.S.) vs. Wiesberger (Europe) — 2&1
Finau (U.S.) vs. Poulter (Europe) — 3&2
Thomas (U.S.) vs. Hatton (Europe) — 4&3
English (U.S.) vs. Westwood (Europe) — 1UP
Spieth (U.S.) vs. Fleetwood (Europe) — TIE
Berger (U.S.) vs. Fitzpatrick (Europe) — 1UP
We all hope the Team USA win is a forecast for what’s to come over the next decade of Ryder Cup tournaments. Until then we focus on what’s next for many of the players. You can bet there will be some rest and relaxation for most who have been grinding it out for the last few months and through the playoff, even though the 2021-2022 PGA Tour Season has already technically started…. Unless your name is Bryson DeChambeau, who hopped a jet to Mesquite, Nevada where he’ll compete for the Professional Long Drivers Association’s World Championship. He smashed one 412 yards in the opening round to advance, so keep your eye on that to enjoy some bonus golf after a great Ryder Cup win.
This weekend it’s Sanderson Farms down in Mississippi, where Sergio is the reigning champion, followed by Shiners and some other good early season tournaments to keep us interested through the prime football months. To us, it’s all prep for The Masters in April. We’re pumped to likely have a full capacity crowd, and the roars to return to normal decibel readings.
