Deputy Editor at noted golfing magazine shows why he edits, doesn't write
Evidently, if you are an editor at a golfing magazine, anything that comes out of your mouth, your pen or your keyboard must be worthy of publication. That is the only conclusion possibly drawn from this article.
Who complained and said that Europe cheated when they had two wild-card picks and we had none? Certainly not flag-waving Michael Corcoran! Where does he get off publishing this drivel at this juncture. I’m sick of the pontifications of guys like Corcoran and Petey Kostis. Is this a recipe of which I am not aware…one side wins, so immediately find a flaw in the victory? If so, that is pathetic journalism. Shame on Corcoran and Kostis, and even more shame on the muckety-mucks who okayed the publication of their bunk, their gibberish, their slaver.

In other words, if it's "America" vs. Europe, it logically follows that the only relevant stipulation is that our players be "American." If our selection process is superior, whose fault is that? Why do golf writers spend so much time theorizing about the kind of job a captain will do before the competition and criticizing the job he did do afterwards? What I mean is, if the captains were locked into a certain formula for choosing their teams, there would be little reason to credit them for success or blame them for failure. The formula would bear the brunt of the responsibility. Choosing a team is integral to the captain's and relevant golf association's roles. And when one side performs that role better, it's not called cheating. It's called superior judgment.
