Am I the only one that loved the 2016 Ryder Cup
Whew…The 2016 Ryder Cup was awesome! On paper the Europeans looked like the favorites, but the US had an ace in the hole…Arnold Palmer.
The King had passed just prior to the Cup and I believe that was a sort of “motivation” for the team. They wanted to play, and win, for the man that had done so much for the game of golf.
The US got off to an early start going 4-0 the first morning but the Europeans came roaring back that afternoon.
Once again, the Cup was going to be decided on the final day with the US needing 14 1/2/ points to take the Cup. It started slowly for the US but soon gathered speed with a dominate performance by the team.
There were battles that won’t soon be forgotten. Reed/Rory, Mickelson/Garcia, Moore/Westwood, Fowler/Rose and a new star for the Europeans…Thomas Pieters.
In all of my years of watching the Ryder Cup, this was one of the most exciting I’ve seen! LOTS of birdies the final day between the two teams and frankly, as good as most of the matches were, I didn’t want either to lose!
It had been awhile since the US had won the Cup so the satisfaction for the team, Captain Love and Vice-Captains had to be emotionally overwhelming!
Just a quick reminder that we are “in season” here in the desert and my October schedule is full! I only have a couple of dates available in November so if you’d like to get together and work on your game you’d better schedule your time NOW!
In the meantime, read this and find some of your LOST power!
