    It’s tough for the internationals to rely on 4 stars whom cannot putt. Anytime hideki putts, especially when it’s important, I tend to relax,
    Because frankly I don’t like his chances. Something even get me started on Adam and Louie. This leaves that team relying on nice guy Mark. We all know where nice guys finish.
    We all know reed won. Tigers 2 mistakes despite the W were subjecting Webb to 3 rounds with the bad boy if golf. And of course benching himself. It all Worked out for Tiger, but only thanks to the international leaders putting woes.
    The rookies were great. But imo the internationals need to purge themselves of all the old names, find some putters…you know all the stuff the US Ryder Cup team still needs to do.

    Nice take on this, as usual. I had not realized that Ancer had said on the record that he wanted to play Tiger. Careful what you wish for.

    Also enjoyed the reactions from several of the USA teammates who spoke afterwards of how nobody wanted to be the one to let Tiger Woods down. Say what you want, but I do believe his willingness to go out there first and put it on the line – and then to set the early tone in his match – had to be pretty inspirational.

    Very enjoyable weekend of golf. Looking forward now to the Tournament of Champions which always reminds me that yes, there is a new season here, and that I also will be out playing in the somewhat foreseeable future without gloves, jackets, stocking hats, handwarmers, etc.

    Happy Holidays, Tom, and thanks for your work here!
