this is the strongest US team I can ever remember
and they have mostly played to their potential. Can't complain about that. Some absolutely top drawer golf from most of their team that would normally have been a pleasure to watch.
Still think Harrington could have arranged his pairings better, but accept it's easy to criticise.
Öand the European team are, with I think the exception of Rose, the highest ranked Europeans in the world. So itís hard to see who else could have been picked. I would have had Rose instead of Poulter, but one player wonít make much difference.
And whereas in the past the US team hasnít gelled, this time it really has.
I was trying to think of a footballing analogy. Best I could come up with is USA are Man United and Europe are Everton. But Iím sure thereís a better one.
You expect that from Westwood, but the rest of the team (a couple of notable exceptions apart) not being able to sink much outside 12 ft means everything else is academic
McIlroy and Poulter being picked for the fourballs.
I think Hovland and Hatton have done OK. Casey, Westwood, McIlroy and Fitzpatrick have been pretty woeful and you can't have so many passengers.
I thought Garcia was a sentimental pick that would cost us but hands up, I got that wrong - he and Rahm have been the brightest hopes in what has been a pretty one-sided affair so far.
Iíve never seen McIlroy as bad as this. Poulter not much better. Casey yesterday was terrible.
Fleetwood, Hatton, Hovland not much better.
Rahm, Garcia and Lowry doing well
This links type course should suit many of our players, especially with the wind. The team though just looks out of form and already beaten.
Hope Iím wrong
What do you say to a nervous guitar player?
