Oh God! We really don't need another horse race in this country. There are enough of them already.

We seem to have a tough time winning over there, but I think this time we may do it. Especially since it's being played on an American-style course (designed by Arnold Palmer). Of course, the weather will still be Irish...

Should be interesting!

Never touched the American mainland but yet somehow it is our fault.  sarcastic 

Excuses are like assholes...everyone's got one and they all stink.

That said, Who knows what will happen. Can Tiger get over his funk of playing Ryder Cup matches? He was once one of the greatest match players of all time until he had to do it for the RC. We'll see what happens. Either way it will be good golf by the world's best.

Yes they did. What is the deal with the US's inability to play even remotely well in most of these matches? Some of those guys looked just a shade better than my playing the way they were getting their asses handed to them?

We stunk - and I do believe that our better match play people were left home through the new selection process - Davis Love, Justin Leonard for example. The Yurrupeans played very well - congrats to them.

Side note: I played Kapalua Plantation course last week from the Blues at 7200 yds and shot an 89, 42 puts didn't help, but I can't imagine how the pros shoot their scores from Championship tees at 7500 yds! The course is f*ckin' tough!

Congratulations Europe!

Some tremendous sport, with fantastic crowds without the rabid biggotry that has blighted past encounters.

How Darren Clark performed in that atmosphere after the recent events he's been through is simply beyond my comprehension. The man must have balls the size of grapefruits!

Very sporting concession by Paul McGinley to share his tightly fought match against Henry.

Not sure what DiMarco was doing on the 18th. I don't why he didn't just shake Westwood's hand when his second shot found water.

All in all I think the event was played in a great atmosphere, with both teams fully contributing. Just an observation, and maybe a hint why the US seems to be struggling in this event - the Europeans played with smiles on their faces, the Americans barely cracked a grin for three days.

Yeah, we got are asses kicked b/w our shoulder blades in this one...again. Talking about balls the size of grapefruits, how about Sergio and the comments he said before the Cup started. He was solid no doubt, but he is just a tad bit arrogant for me.

Excellent result - agree with comment re the lack of smiles from the US team - all looked totally miserable (apart from Tiger Wood when his caddy lost his 9 iron in the lake) even if winning easily ( Jim Furyk comes to mind, beating Garcia easily, yet looked like he lost $100 and found a dollar.)

Ryder cup is a team event and it was very obvious that we were the better team even though the top 3 in the rankings are all american.

The personal tragedy of Darren Clarke and the support he had from his team mates, crowd and the american team was heartwarming and he played magnificantly. A brave decision by Woosnam to include him and a courageous one for him to say yes.

The crowd were very supportive to both sides and only the odd cry of ' get in the hole' was heard.



English First, British Second, european Never!
