Since Europe joined the UK & Ireland, the record in the Ryder Cup is rather closer, National. To be honest, the whole underdogs thing is starting to sound a bit hollow - the two sides seem very closely matched.

Oh, a word for Curtis Strange. He's a true gent - a man of integrity and honour. His speech at the end was typical of him, and he's a credit to your country.

Sorry if I sounded hollow, I didn't mean to do that, I was just repeating something I heard at the end of the Ryder Cup, and Banco, the US and Europe are even in terms of wins if you want to start counting from when GB joined Europe.

Fair enough.

At least this Ryder Cup was matched by decent behaviour by the crowds. That's not a dig at the Americans, by the way - some of the behaviour in Britain in years gone by has left something to be desired, but the whole Brookline thing left a bit of a sour taste in everyone's mouth. Hopefully both parties have learnt from it. It certainly semed so this weekend.

Yes, both sides' crowds have participated in unseemly behaviour in years past. I too hope we will not duplicate those mistakes.

Anyway, can someone tell me when the next Ryder Cup is? Will it go back to odd years, or will it be on even years now?

Also, Paul Azinger's bunker shot on 18 was truly amazing. To bad it wasn't enough, eh?

Colin Montgomerie is just amazing in Ryder Cup play-too bad he can't translate that into tour victories!! And who are these guys Price and McGinley who stole the show at the end? Price just ate up Mickleson alive-and sorry, but I'd not invite old Phil to another Ryder. He just can't do a thing in Cup matches.

Shot of the week: Paul Azinger's pitch-in from the bunker on 18 to halve that match! Almost Shot Of The Week: Furyk almost doing the same thing from the bunker on 18 which could have extended the match.

Kudo's to Europe.

Great result for the european team.

The last day tactics of putting the stronger, more experienced players out first worked well - in that it got a lot of momentum and support as (at one point) europe were ahead in the first 6 matches. This really got the home crowd behind the team although still admiring the brilliant shots played by both sets of players.

Colin Montgomery was brilliant in his comfortable victory over Scott Hoch (5 & 4) - not that Hoch did anything wrong, he was just up against somebody who peaked at the right time. The same goes for Bernard Langer - unbeaten in the week. According to one of the commentators Monty and Langer were never behind in any of their matches. Between them they got a lot of points for the team.

Crowd support for both sides was good, both sets of supporters being respectful of the other - a good sign after the events of the last competition.
Probably the biggest disappointment was the performance of Tiger Woods who, although acknowledged as the best in the world, was not in his usual form.

The event will be remembered as a great victory for the europeans despite (on paper) being the underdog. Played on a great course with a friendly atmosphere and support for both teams.

Going to America to defend the trophy next time will hold no fear and maybe, just maybe we can come home with it again.











English First, British Second, european Never!

Normalspeed, the next one is in two years time. It will take place on even years from now on - they've just skipped a year.
