The 28th Ryder Cup beings this Friday at the Celtic Manor, with teams from America and Europe battling it out on the green of Celtic Manor. Europe has won three straight Ryder Cups on its home soil and will look to continue the trend, while America tries to hold on to it’s win. Who are you rooting for? Europe or America?
Speaking of the Ryder Cup, European and American teams have been banned from twittering and using other social sites during the games in order to keep their focus on the three day competition. U.S. captain Corey Pavin and European counterpart Colin Montgomerie don’t want anything to get in the ways of their potential victories. Good or bad?
Three-time champion Ellen Port, a 49 year old teacher and coach at John Burroughs High School in St. Louis took medalist honours in the U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur for a record fourth time Sunday, shooting a 1-over 73 at Wichita Country Club, with a 2 or 146 total to top the 64 qualifiers.
John Parry of England captured his first European Tour title Sunday, winning the Vivendi Cup by two strokes over Johan Edfors of Sweden after shooting a 2-under 70. The 23-year-old Parry, a former Walker Cup player who turned professional in 2007, finished at 17-under 271 at Golf de Joyenval Club. Good job! Parry will be going on this weekend to play in the Ryder cup.
Tiger Woods is captain’s first pick this year for the Ryder Cup first time ever, making some people wonder if he’s right for the job or if there’s too much pressure on him.
