After a delay of a year, it is finally Ryder Cup week.
1st up news - John Rahm (stragely) decided to play a PGA tournament this weekend, he was shit in more ways than one - picking up a stomach bug and missing the cut.
In terms of “what goes on” tomorrow is arrival day. The last Volunteers will be rocking up to collect their gear, players will be flying in and having their first team dinners.
Unlike Europe the Yanks have an annoying habit of not letting any “foreign types” volunteers near the golf course. They get herded into retail outlets or car parking duties, hence most of the regular crew don’t bother to go.
Tuesday the players will wander out & play 9 holes and maybe walk the rest of the course, “other stuff” will be going down - there will be “Junior & Celeb” Ryder Cups going on to justify paying huge sums of money to watch nothing much.
I have problems this year. I have a wedding Saturday from 9pm-2pm local so will likely miss one set of matches - been sedning streaming sites that do golf links to my work mobile in case they work and am watching the Golf TV App web site in case they have the rights over here then will sign up for a free 7 day trial.
Can’t see Europe winning tbh too many players are “playing well” not many are on top of their games but hey, we’ve been there before.
