A junior golfer from England who is named after Tiger Woods was delighted to meet his namesake ahead of the 2018 Ryder Cup. "But I was able to get that rest". We don't realise that we're the underdog because that's not the way we think. It's a team effort and we have a wonderful team ethic.
"There's only a couple guys that have any kind of scar tissue on playing on away soil, and those guys have won a combined 120-something times", teammate Jordan Spieth said.
European captain Thomas Bjorn said he had no hesitation in giving four of his five rookies an early taste of the action, with only Swede Alex Noren having to wait his turn.
They are comfortable there. "You have to stand up and hit a golf shot". The course is considered a "thinking mans" golf course.
So taking all of that into account makes it virtually even, in my view. I will post-Ryder Cup. "You'll see less aggressiveness, more conservative tee-to-green, but once you get on the greens, they are a little bit flatter and you can really make putts here", usa five-time major victor Phil Mickelson said. "Those two things combined are how I got my nickname". He sat out the first day before teaming with Darren Clarke in a fourballs loss to Tiger Woods and Chris Riley, and then sitting out another session before a singles victory against Riley. "I'll have that again here, but in Europe I'll also have the support of the crowd".
"The Spaniard is known as a fiery and exuberant figure on the course and said: "[With] the history of the Ryder Cup, I think I will be paired with an experienced player. They get the Ryder Cup well.
I wonder whether the United States have made the right decision in making Tony Finau their final wild card pick, though. Schauffele might have been a better pick for me. The gallery was so stunned that it booed Finau as he approached the green, and he paused before rapping in the short birdie putt. It all comes down to holing putts in the end, not who can drive the ball 400 yards. "It has a special place in his heart, the Ryder Cup".
But the captain will have to mix that technology with good old-fashioned leadership to get the best from his players. I can only be myself.
"I don't have any idea".
These are big decisions and once play begins the picture is ever-moving.
Justin Thomas won the PGA Tour money title by $237,469 over Dustin Johnson. Win a match Friday morning, and it'll certainly be interpreted that way.
One element he faced every two years was trying to be on a team of 12 players even as the golfing world saw it as Tiger Woods and 11 other Americans. It's like something from an Agatha Christie movie.
"Walking to the first tee at Augusta, walking to the first tee at St Andrews, walking to the first tee in The Ryder Cup is that different".
After a Tuesday practice round with McIlroy during which he said he was outdriven by about 50 yards, Rahm retired to the physio table for some acupuncture treatment. We really loved our order and took that feeling out onto the course, where we won 15½-12½. They are the holders after stopping Europe's three-cup run in 2016.
"So, we win together, we lose together. They are well aware of it, and they are well aware of how hard it is to win in Europe".
"You're a big inspiration to me - thank you very much", Williams told Woods, who responded by saying: "No, thank you". Those guys were like gods.
"This is what we practise for and what we play for week-in, week-out", he said.
