America’s Collapse at the Ryder Cup

It was painful to watch. The only “positive” I can take away from it is that Davis Love III will now be remembered as the Ryder Cup captain who presided over such a historic collapse1.

Jay Busbee on Yahoo, writing about the “losers” from this year’s Ryder cup:

Davis Love III: Let the second-guessing begin! Should Love have picked Hunter Mahan over Furyk? Should he have played the unbeatable team of Bradley/Phil Mickelson on Saturday afternoon? Should he have switched up the order of his singles to “hide” certain of his captain’s picks? Plenty of questions, with no answers

Dan Levy also has a solid column of what happened at the Ryder Cup on Sunday.

  1. When I was younger, I was at a golf tournament where Davis Love was talking about how much he disliked playing in front of people and how he liked the tournament in, I believe, Phoenix, where he said “people got so drunk before the tournament they never make it out to the course”. I have rooted against him ever since.
