Surefire way for America to avoid losing another Ryder Cup
Everybody in the media – at least in the U.S. – is now writing their obligatory “10 ways for America to win back the Ryder Cup” baloney.
So here’s mine. Don’t worry, it’s short.
1. Get better players.
“Just five out of the top 20 players in the world rankings are Americans,” said NBC analyst Johnny Miller. “That’s unheard of.”
That’s bad enough. What is infinitely worse is the way our millionaires rolled over.
I’m taking a perverse pleasure in the bashing by the European media. They deserve it.
James Lawton, in the Belfast Telegraph, says the recent European romps may even prompt organizers to call off the event, to save us the humiliation, asking “…whether the great golf match can survive any more surrenders on the scale of the one made by (the) American team…”
He mocks Vince Lombardi’s quote: “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.”
“Yesterday the best the Americans could produce, for a third consecutive day, was so close to token resistance it would surely have thrown Lombardi into a rage,” Lawton wrote.
The same paper ran a story entitled: “Why America may never win Ryder Cup Again.”
“They might as well hand it over for good as there is little hope of America regaining the golden trophy,” David Kelly writes.
Here’s No. 2 in my list of surefire ways to avoid losing another Ryder Cup.
Oh, right, we already tried that.
