Ryder Cup Singles
October 3, 2010 by staff
Ryder Cup Singles, Jim Herre, editor, SI Golf Group: Not a good day for the blue red and white. The United States will come in singles Monday, down by 9 1/2-6 1 / 2. Americans can still win this thing? Personally, I am a big believer in fate. I have a good feeling about this.
David Dusek, deputy editor, Golf.com: In response to your quote, the United States may have to channel the spirit of Brookline where she will return on Sunday and win. Total absence Mickelson and Dustin Johnson of the production is bad for the team almost as much as Jeff Overton and Bubba Watson helped performance. If the U.S. does win full point Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Steve Stricker and Furyk – four of the top five players ranked in the world – I do not think they can win. You just know that Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood, Graeme McDowell and Luke Donald will stand for the Europeans.
Mark oafish, editor, Sports Illustrated: Doing the math: Put Westwood, Martin Kaymer, Poulter and McDowell for victories. Who won the Euro 13 1 / 2. This means that the U.S. can afford to lose only half a point on the remaining eight matches. Time to get adapted to Medina and 2012.
Alan Shipnuck, senior writer Sports Illustrated: They could save so many people be amounts have not been taken. Phil, DJ, Furyk, and Tiger … they are all of their game if they remember who they are and big game so simple it is feasible. But I think that Europe will turn it into a rash.
Michael Bamberger Senior Writer, Sports Illustrated: The 50 pence piece is a strange looking seven-sided. Would it be so shocking if you initiate a 12-fold and Queen Elizabeth came up to eight of them? When you match 12 of the best golfers in the world, every game is a coin toss. Americans can certainly win. Nothing to do with the team rooms, destiny, passion, big mo or any of that – just the strangeness of probability with a small sample as 12.
Jim Gorant, editor, Sports Illustrated: I think they’re going to shut it down, but there’s just too much ground to make up.
Charlie Hanger, editor, Sports Illustrated: The U.S. certainly can win. The Euros have been killed today, but the Americans are perfectly capable of catching fire in the same way tomorrow.
Gary Van Sickle Senior Writer, Sports Illustrated: The Americans have not all those who play almost as well as Donald and Westwood. Plus, Tiger and Phil and Dustin Johnson are struggling. There is nobody to look like the leader of this great American support. Cink, Kuchar and Overton led the team to the extent they can.
Cameron Morfit, senior editor, Golf Magazine: Absolutely no way the U.S. wins this thing. Dustin Johnson looked lost on the greens soggy, Phil can not catch a break or a golf hole, and even the team most telling American Jeff Overton and Bubba Watson were 1-2-0. It has not happened to any of them in this third session.
Dusek: Kuchar and Overton were impressive. There’s always next time: the couple with Anthony Kim and a more polished Rickie Fowler, and you have the makings of a group of young pretenders to the Ryder Cup.
Morfit: Okay. I liked the reaction to the eagle Overton, 8. This is what I remember of that Cup. And rain.
Reiterman Ryan, senior producer, GOLF.com: cannot guarantee anyone a point, but if the list of Europeans were not five points, it would be a shocker to most of Brookline.
Damon Hack Senior Writer, Sports Illustrated: I do not think fate has a passport. Too much ground to make up. Euro wins.
Jeff Ritter, senior producer, GOLF.com: History says the U.S. is strong on Sunday (first Monday) in singles. It’s a big deficit, but I would not be surprised if the Americans left.
Morfit: You and Ben Crenshaw may be the only ones.
Van Sickle: Cue the old “Dragnet” theme: They are done. If Team USA has been a wounded crewmember on “Star Trek” Bones say Kirk: “He’s dead, Jim.”
Farrell Evans, writer-reporter, Sports Illustrated: I do not think the U.S. can overcome the psychological blows they have today. Europe wins easily.
Morfit: Pavin would have liked to sit Phil, Dustin or two, but he just could not. The new format highlighted the depth of Europe, and with two sessions of six games, the cost of having a really horrible session became too expensive to recover.
Simpleton: I’m not so sure, Cam. The Americans won the first section of six match 3 1/2-2 1 / 2. Apart from Dustin Johnson, recruits from the United States held their own. It was not as deep as it was the performance of U.S. heavyweights such as Woods, Furyk and Mahan.
Morfit: I thought putting poor Dustin Johnson and Phil c / o Rickie failure about 15 birdies sealed their fate.
Ninny: After the horrible yesterday, the Americans were able to get this thing to 8-8 (or almost) on the back nine today. Sloppy play on a drivable par-4 and preliminary development led to their loss. At the same time, give credit Euros. They hit the shots and holed the putts when the momentum was starting to swing.
Dusek Mark Law. Now, imagine if the organizers of the event was not mistaken and has sold tickets for Monday. Or just let people in for free. Currently, only the Sunday ticket holders will be admitted at Celtic Manor for singles. Since not everyone can go on a Monday, Europe is losing a great opportunity for an even greater advantage over home. Remember the crowd Monday at Torrey Pines …
