Ben Curtis a good man to have on U.S. Ryder Cup team
Ben Curtis takes some shots as being a one-hit wonder, since he won the 2003 British Open but little else.
He did win twice in 2006, but hasn’t come close in a major until the great showing at the PGA Championship last week, which puts him on the Ryder Cup team.
But, he brings something to the U.S. team it hasn’t always had: He’s a quiet fighter, a grunt, a grinder.
He’s also slow. Maybe that will get on the Europeans’ nerves.
“Ben has got that kind of demeanor we need on the Ryder Cup team,” Captain Paul Azinger told Reuters. “He’s a little more stoic, a little more subdued, but I like his personality. He’s the type of guy that’s just going to put his head down and barrel on.”
The U.S. doesn’t need any rah-rah guys, or coddled superstars. They need players who want to win.
Azinger is due to announce his four picks Sept 2.
