Europe took the Ryder Cup Monday morning, winning nine of the last 13, leaving the U.S to dry out both their uniforms and their tears. Though the weather was beautiful, some just can’t seem to forget the horrible weather of earlier in the weekend.
It seems that the Europeans have had a year for the books. Not only did they take the cups, but European team member McDowell won the U.S. Open, and Martin Kaymer of Germany won the PGA Championship, the first time two Europeans have won majors in the same year since 1999.
However, there are being pushes being made to not only make the event earlier to the year to avoid horrible weather like the type that put the Ryder cup on hold for the first time in history. Captain Colin Montgomerie plans to recommend that Europe’s Ryder Cup selection process be changed for the 2012 event after having to leave English pair Paul Casey and Justin Rose off his team.
And what about the other team? The Americans did put up a bigger fight then some expected, with Tiger Woods having his best Ryder Cup, winning his opening two matches with Stricker and bouncing back from his worst defeat in the history of Tiger Woods golf to overwhelm Francesco Molinari on the back nine for a 4-and-3 victory.
Not only that, but it seems Woods will be playing in Thailand, his mother’s birthplace, for the first time in 10 years in November in an event that is meant to be part of the celebrations to mark King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s 60th year on the Thai throne.
