I just read that, BS. That’s why we suck he’s more worried about getting paid than playing for his damn country and beating the Euros. Hey he was fantastic this afternoon, but if true that’s a huge issue. He doesn’t have enough money already?

Would really like to know more about Rory/Lowry/Cava/Bones argument that spilled from 18 to the parking lot? Seems they just reacted to a bunch of heckling from the fans about Cantlay not wearing a hat. It’s okay for them to dance, laugh and fist pump but how dare the USA have a celebration?
Someone asked him about the hat. Said it doesn't fit. LOL. 2021 too. Cava was celebrating in front of Rory with his back toward him. Lowery found it too distracting toward Rory as he was putting next. Can't remember if he was starting to line up the putt.

Cantlay showed up Rory & the Romans the last few holes today. The hat tipping to the crowd in front of the European players (before Rory had a chance to putt) was classic! Poor Rory got into a shouting match in the parking lot. Watch the video. LoL. The US have played like garbage, but this gives them a chance!

This team needs to stay out late tonight, tie on an epic buzz. Wake up 20 minutes before their tee time and have a morning beer in the parking lot. Guaranteed win.
And play with only their 7-irons.

I like the singles matchups. Theyd have to all play well obviously, but it’s not impossible.

At the very least, make them sweat the last 4 matches.

The guy waved a hat. Going after a 60 year old caddie in a parking lot seems like a gross overreaction. The Euros can dish it out but can't take it. Every Ryder Cup the Americans get lectured about decorum yet the Euros act like they won the Masters after every 6 foot putt that halves a hole on the front 9. Sergio, Poulter, and Westwood was the thinnest skinned person in history and yet they still bring up Brookline like it was the crime of the century. Id like to see anyone make an 80ft putt to win the Ryder Cup on 18 after a huge comeback and then not run around like a maniac. It was 24 years ago and a few of their players weren't even born. Let it go

Zach just had Jordan switch to a 3 wood on the Par 3 15th. Jordan promptly hit it into the water. Oops
Not true. Zach gave him data that the captains had about how the hole was playing. He just said in his press conference he would never tell any of the players what club to hit. He was emphatic about it. He would lose all credibility with Spieth and the team if he lied about that after the fact.

Did they tell him that only Rory could reach it with a 3wood? Lots of drivers were short. Jordan doesn’t have that extra gear.

I think Zack was just trying to cover his ass in the interview. Spieth didn't want to switch clubs. If Zach didn't come over, he wouldn't have. He looked so uncomfortable standing over the shot. If that was coaching, then I'd rather hit a blind shot into the green!!

He literally told Jordan to switch to the wrong club. Jordan looked confused and pissed before and after he hit the shot. WTH was that? The massacre in Rome. Americans being fed to the Lions.
Brutal decision.


Almost like Spieth actually has the choice to play the club he wants.

What is Johnson going to do? Pull him off the course in the middle of a round.

Players have to sack up and take ownership of their game.

Spieth picked the club is the point. It was his mistake.i can't speak on the data he was given by Zach or his caddie. I think we all know he is not a bomber. No idea why he chose 3wood. The announcers assumed about the conversation and everyone just took it as gospel.

There are some crazy takes in this thread. If you don't think the US has a chance tomorrow you haven't watched much Ryder Cup action. We generally dominate the singles matches. If the first 3-4 matches start going the way of the US, then Europe is going to get very tight very quick. I also think the broadcasters bungled the Spieth tee shot on the 16th hole. Zach was telling him he'd be better to lay up to 50 yards and give himself enough yardage to put some loft/spin on the ball from the fairway. Spieth is one of the best wedge players in the game so this was actually good strategy to lay up. Unfortunately Spieth pushed his 3 wood into the water. He was not trying to hit the green, he was aiming at the left bunker he just mishit his shot. Spieth has been pretty brutal for this entire Ryder Cup.

Just curious but what do you mean by dominate singles? The last 5 times it’s been played in Europe the US have lost 4 of 5 single sessions.

2021 8-4 US
2018 7.5-4.5 Europe
2016 7.5-4.5 US
2014 6.5-5.5 Europe
2012 8,5-3.5 Europe
2010 7-5 US
2008 7.5-4.5 US
2006 8.5-3.5 Europe
2004 7.5-4.5 Europe
2002 7.5-4.5 Europe

Anyone who's actually "watched much Ryder Cup action" realizes US needs 8.5 pts. Which they haven't done this century.

This is a bad take based on the past 25 years of Ryder Cup competition.

I'm calling 7-5 Euros today, but could be more. Even if the US wins 3 of the first 4 matches, the back half of the US roster is mostly not playing well and can be taken by the back half of the Euro roster.

It was pointed out that the players do get some compensation for this. A portion of the revenues of the event goes to the PGA players retirement funds. Their contracts with equipment suppliers and other sponsors typically have bonuses if you make the team. If the pga tour further pays for making the team, it brings up issue on eliminating the captain's picks. There is already resentment that they are too clubby now. i.e., you make the team because you are Scottie's buddy. Think they would have to go strictly on the merit or point system. On the Rory thing.. He was pissed about LaCava continuing to jaw at him while he was lining up his putt. He wasn't pissed at Bones. LaCava was out of camera shot in the parking lot.

There’s a chance…an outside chance, but it does exist.
