Europe continued it’s dominance of the USA with another convincing victory, 18 1/2 to 9 1/2. This ties the worst loss total for the USA. The European team put together some of the best golf I’ve ever seen. They made amazing shots, aces, chip-ins, 100 foot putts and more. The USA team never got anything going.
Don’t blame Lehman
Unlike Curtis Strange’s mistakes at the Belfry in 2002, you can’t blame Tom Lehman for this loss. It wouldn’t have mattered if Bobby Jones himself was coaching the U.S. team this time around. Europe was a buzz saw.
I for one am delighted at the Europeans setting a new record of 3 straight wins on the bounce for the Ryder Cup.
This year’s event didn’t excite me as much as previous Ryder Cups as it was never really close or in doubt in my opinion, but it was good to see some great golf by the European players, especially Casey’s hole in one!
