The U.S. seems strong but it’s worth mentioning that a few guys who look like solid bets to be on the team — Bubba Webb and Tiger to name three — haven’t had much success in the event. I think it’s a coin-flip as most Ryder Cups are these days. But in the meantime keep talking Monty! It only adds to the anticipation.
Frayed nerve endings? The guy is still a specimen so I don’t think it’s that he’s physically tired. I think the reality is that he’s the 50th-ranked player in the world for a reason.
I second third and fourth those comments. I’ve used this before and I’ll use it again (it’s from Sandy Tatum)“He has a swing that will not quit.” Chamblee showed some nerve by playing. Had he shot 80-80 — and golf is as others have noted a funny game — there would have been some who would have rejoiced with told-you-sos. Good for Brandel for trying but you cannot compare what the two golfers have done or did do.
