Ryder Cup 2021
« on: Sep 24, 2021, 10:19:03 »
Can't wait for this to start today.

Suepct it'll be a classic contest after waiting 3 whole years since Paris 2018. For all the chat/hype and stats for the US team I just cannot see us losing at Whistling Straits this weekend for a number of reasons.

Our team look very comfortable, relaxed and ready for action. And thus far Harrington is easily 2 up on Stricker who I see as their weakest link - along with misery guts Keopka and BDC the golfing gorilla. Fully expect to see most of the US team self implode if/when it goes against them.

Bring it on!

US off to a good start - here's hoping the pensioners joints ease off in the afternoon.

Well unfortunately the US team play as well as their rankings suggested they would - no implotions and while Stricker came across as a bit of a hapless buffoon - he made less daft decisions than Paddy when it came to pairing picks. Not that I think it would have made any difference, some of our players were seriously out of form, nice to see Rory and Poults turn up on the last day, they were both simply terrible Friday / Saturday.

Victor showed he is a real player for the future, if he can improve his putting 5% I can see he winning a handful of majors.
Rahm was brilliant the first 2 days and just seemed to run out of steam against a great performance from Scheffler.
Sergio surprised me and played well justifying his pick, Bryson was (I hate to say it) unbeatable yesterday - but the lad is never going to play foursomes is he?
As much as I love Lee, Tommy and Hatton, they had no form coming in to the match and struggled.

My biggest worry is I don't see who is coming to come into the team for Italy 2023, the US are so dominant in the World Rankings at the moment, our young players coming through (with the exception of VH) seem to be one or two season wonders, not real stars who will be consistent for the next 5-10 years.

Couldn’t agree more. The world rankings are plastered with their team. It would have been a shock if they hadn’t won at a canter. We are in dire need of some quality coming through. If we don’t, they will walk the next 2.

Presumably the OWGR is somewhat skewed towards those playing in US?

More points at events with stronger fields- unfortunately the European Tour doesn’t have as many top events (large prizes attract top players) as the PGA Tour - so any European Tour players can’t have as high a ranking as an equivalent player on PGA tour?

I know lots of Europeans go to US to play but I wonder if this affects tge rankings

Well only Rahm would get in their team on current form and rankings. That says it all. Their team is littered with young hungry players, many who have FedEx, Majors and WGC wins.

Whether or not you believe the ranking system, they are simply way better golfers who have hit form at the right time.
