Why is interest so high for Solheim Cup? Easy -- U.S. men can't win Ryder Cup
I have a theory about why the Solheim Cup is getting so much interest this year. It’s a pretty simple theory: The U.S. men can’t win the Ryder Cup, so we’re pinning our hopes on the women.
Americans are getting fed up with the pampered U.S. male golfers who seem to go down every other year to the Europeans without much of a fight. The U.S. team squabbles with each other, they’re aloof, they don’t seem to care that much, about each other, the event itself or even the American fans who are ostensibly pulling for them.
Maybe the women will be different, no matter what you think of captain Nancy Lopez’ selections. For the most part, they seem to be a fairly tightly-knit group. They might not represent the ultimate talent American women golfers have, but at least I think you won’t see them caving in like the men do. They’ll put up a fight, and that’s all we can expect of them. I hope the added interest doesn’t put them under too much pressure.
