Team PGA takes it's biennial whuppin' again. Final score 9.5 - 14.5. Europe is probably now referring to the US team as "cupcakes".

The funny thing is that now every player on both teams can share the same plane back to their homes in Florida.

Phil stepped outside the box with some comments about how the captain's strategy
has been wayward in 2014...2012...2010...and thinks that 2008 captain Azinger had it right with pods.
taken as a direct shot at Tom Watson. The presser was a tad uncomfortable.

Shame on Phil...the players lose convincingly and within an hour after the cup is settled he blames the coach...perhaps the criticism is valid but the timing of his comments stunk. I've lost a little respect for Phil

It could have been done privately, but I can see Phil's point. It has to be sickening to be on the losing side for the last dozen years or so with that only exception of 2008 that he talked about. Every new captain thinks he is smarter than the last one and they all lost. Always picked the wrong combinations, the wrong everything, even the ridiculous outfit that make them look like overgrown clowns...

If he did not voice his opinion publicly, the PGA will pick the same clone for the next one and so on..now, the focus is more on a captain who is truly qualified, not one who had won the most majors. None of the last few Euro captains had won a major and the one who did, Sir Nick Faldo, lost.
