Ryder Cup

Post by Argonheart_Po » Thu Sep 27, 2018 9:28 am

This year I’ll be going for America.

I’m sick of the boorish behaviour of the Euro media complaining about American golfers and spectators while their own players and fans are at best the same, but more often worse.

And fuck Jean-Claude Juncker.

Well, when you're an African you can go for whoever you want.

American golfing fans have always been pretty obnoxious.

Adds a bit of spice to the competition.

It's too bad Tiger and Phil are so shitty at Ryder Cup, otherwise they have a chance. I don't think there's been much complaining from any media about fans the last few Ryder Cups. I remember Colin Montgomerie getting abuse at every hole and then promptly beating every Amerikkkan player he played against. Drove them crazy.

That is a ridiculous, biased, and stupid generalization.
The vast vast majority of American golf fans appreciate good golf no matter who is playing, and are well-behaved on the course. There are always the few who occasionally behave badly in every sport, including Brit fans -- especially soccer fans -- but to categorize all or most American golf fans as "obnoxious" or as lacking proper manners is an outrageous statement and false.

Post by steveogolf » Sat Sep 29, 2018 6:16 pm

This Ryder Cup is disappointing to me, NOT only because the U.S.A. is getting whacked, but because of the not-so-great play on both sides. The Play by Team U.S.A. is less than bad --- it is PATHETIC. If you watched Saturday's matches could you believe that hole in Alternate Shot where the Euros put a ball in the lake, and instead of playing safe the U.S.A. player then put their ball in the lake. Then Team U.S.A. put YET ANOTHER BALL IN THE LAKE. OMG. The hole was HALVED with TRIPLE BOGEYS. How TERRIBLE ! It's not like past Ryder Cups where the play by many of the players on both sides have been spectacular.

Saturday's U.S.A. play was so bad, and I was so disgusted, that at 6 a.m. U.S. Pacific time (2 p.m. Brit time/3 p.m. Paris time) I switched the channel to watch 2 old episodes of "The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp" -- and that was a lot more enjoyable than watching the Ryder Cup.

Notwithstanding the above, I DO LIKE THE GOLF COURSE, including the high difficult rough. The course is a good test of golf, but most of the players are not stepping-up like in the past.

Here is the math for Sunday's 12 singles matches:
Team U.S.A. needs 8 points out of 12 points to retain the Ryder Cup and 8 1/2 points out of the 12 points to win the Cup. That looks very difficult to me.
Team Europe needs only 4 1/2 points out of 12 points to win The Cup (Only 4 points out of the 12 points gives them a TIE/DRAW, but if that happens the U.S.A. retains the Cup. 4 1/2 points out of 12 points looks easy to me.
Anyway, I will be up at 3 a.m. Pacific Time on Sunday to see what happens.

There was no steveo flounce way back when ---- as I explained long ago, I went on vacation out of the country for several weeks after that Ryder Cup. By the time I got back the Ryder Cup was long past history. And that's The Truth !

Agree with that steavo...when I heard the Ryder Cup was being held it France I was surprised...I didn't think they were that into Golf in France but that golf course is something else...its not easy to play and I have a new found respect for the players and the sport....I also have a feeling the yanks will make a comeback and that this game is far from over.

Steveo: I don't think so, Lincs. Team U.S.A. is too far behind with too few matches remaining. There would need to be a complete collapse by Team Europe on Sunday for the U.S.A. to retain the Cup. But in the recent past both the U.S.A. and Europe have come back on Sunday from big deficits to win The Cup.
We will see. But it is great to see that you are now a golf fan. Golf CAN be interesting to watch even though most non-golfer sports fans think that it is boring.

Have you ever seen a Ryder Cup before, Steveo?

It is often this situation going to the final day and it ends up being within a point or 1/2 point by the end.

Team USA would be assumed to win/draw 2/3 of their singles matches, in terms of 6 points from 12.

So they just need to steal two wins from defeats. Yes a tall order.

That fact they don't need to win outright with 14 1/2 points is a bonus.

I still envisage Europe weathering an early storm.

And facts are facts:

Tiger, played 4, one point.

Tommy Fleetwood, played 4, four points

It looks like a decent course, up close I'd bet it presents a lot of difficult lies that may look easier than they are. No one is playing particularly well.

It's FRANCE, the Americans are distracted checking out the women to see if they're wearing panties.

Team U.S.A. should be embarrassed. They played like shit. The Euros played good golf, but not great. For me it was a disappointing Ryder Cup because it wasn't close -- no high drama for the last few matches. It is most enjoyable when it is close in the end, and this Ryder Cup wasn't close from late Friday to the conclusion. I have seen the comebacks made by both the U.S.A. and Europe in recent years, but those are most unusual and rare.
So that is it for the 2018 golf season as far as the significant tournaments are concerned. There is still the Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson Thanksgiving weekend match on Pay TV that few will watch other than those at the expensive country clubs, but Phil is playing so poorly now so that might be a bomb shit match.
Actually, the highlight of this Ryder Cup for me was watching Jon Rahm play well against Tiger Woods and beat him 2 and 1. Why? It's because I have seen Jon Rahm play in more than 10 tournaments for Arizona State University in college golf tournaments when the CAL BEARS golf team has also played, and I have talked to Rahm a few times. He was great then, and is great now, and getting better.
The End.
Steveo is my name, and golf is my game.

Exactly. Who's gonna pay money to this on TV now?
Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair.
