Ryder Cup 2012

Now that the FedEx Cup playoffs are over (great job Brandt Snedeker), it is time to focus on some team golf.  The 2012 Ryder Cup tees off this weekend just outside of Chicago at Medinah Country Club.  I love the Ryder Cup!  I love the aspect of playing golf as a team not just as an individual.  I love to see the patriotism from both the players and the fans.  I love to hear about the events of the week and all of the things that happen in the team rooms.  Also, this week usually brings out the best in all of the players.  There are always some amazing shots during the matches and usually some shots where you can tell the pressure has gotten to someone.  

Team USA with Captain Davis Love III
 It is such a great sporting event and every shot is important for the players and the teams.  The teams are made up of 12 players for each side and all of the players on the two teams are ranked in the top 30 in the world.  It really is exciting to follow and the crowds will be crazy!  I can only image how that affects the players both good and bad?  There will be a lot of pressure on Team USA because they are playing at home and they want to get the cup back from the European team.  Two years ago, it came down to the finial match and the Euros walked away with the cup.  The American’s are looking for redemption!  It is going to be a fun weekend of patriotism and great golf!
