This Euro team is filled with a lot of really good players and Carnoustie did nothing to really further prove or denounce that. If those guys play well at say back-to-back playoff events in a month then I’m inclined to respect Monty’s reaction.
It’s definitely something to consider. Also worth considering will be the many people on that bubble who haven’t recently played their way into contention. Getting there regardless of the outcome has to be worth something to Jim Furyk.
Tiger has showed this year that his best golf is good enough but he has been unable to string together four straight strong rounds. Is it mental fatigue? A back that is balkier than he will let on?
