agree that the pairings look silly, how you have overton going out while furyk sits is beyond me.


The more I thought about it, the more it made sense. Looking at the birdie average on tour, it looks like Pavin left off the guys who don't make as many birdies in favor of guys who do, a solid strategy for best ball. Furyk apparently has a horrible record in best ball, and will be out there for the alternate shot. Also, by pairing the two rookies together, if they're not ready, you've only blown one point for the team, whereas if you had split them up, they could blow 2 points for the team. I'm not sure if trying to get all 12 guys a match before singles is a worthwhile strategy, but if it is, I think Pavin played it correctly. I think Watson and Overton got a favorable draw (2 grinders in Donald and Harrington, and Harrington has been playing poorly), but they are 2 up through 2.

I was pretty pissed when I woke up really early to catch some coverage, only to find out they are in a rain delay. They've been delayed a long time, and I don't see how they will finish by Sunday. Here's a "WTF" quote from an ESPN article:

Finishing the matches on Sunday as scheduled is unlikely because of the delay. If play continues into Monday, it has to be completed by 6:43 p.m. local time (which is sunset). Whoever leads in completed matches at that time would win the Ryder Cup; any matches remaining on the course would be considered halved

The USofA is baffled where this "Wales" place is:

That's a trick question, Wales is a fictional place. Like Atlantis or Mt. Rushmore.

I picture it east and north of England. At least east of England.

ETA; of course, i'm dead wrong.

Wonder how many know people from Wales are Welsh? My guess is people in FL, MI, WV, SC, MS, MA, NJ, PA, ME, VT, NH, IL, WI, MO, OK, KS, NE, SD, MT, NV, or ID won't.

How many state abbreviations did I get incorrect.

i would think one thing to come out of this year's cup is a format change that extends some if not all of the foursomes and/or fourball matches to have all 12 players play, i think it works a lot better than having 8 play and 4 sit.

16-17-18 on this course are a great stretch of finishing holes for match play.

Damn, that was good stuff. Mahan with a big choke, but I don't blame him at all - that was pretty much the most pressure-filled moment you can have in golf. He also missed short putts all day, though.

The U.S. blew the cup yesterday. How the hell do you only come out with 1/2 point out of 6 in Session 3? Horrible.

I really hate Ian Poulter.

the wacky indian dude has been revealed. turns out that was a cheap red wig, not a turban, and a fake groucho mustache.

the article has a lot of great photoshops, this is my favorite.

Can you give us a Ryder Cup edition of NGOLFOL? Seemed like a lot of preening for a supposedly respectable sport.


I saw a couple of good ones from Poulter and Reed.

Just a comment: this one isn't a preen, he is signaling that he hit it WAY right and motioning FORE RIGHT to alert the spectators that are about to be ducking for cover.
Ballz: So, I fucking got a BJ for $250 total, and wore a rubber. It sucked, I couldnt even feel it, so i jeckyled onto her tits. She was cute. Not even that far out of my league, it was a waste of $250

Thank you MTM. I appreciated the work here.

PREZ - If you KNOW sooooo much about this Ryder Cup, please give us some good preening/trash talk. If I am to believe any of the NBC promos for this, the Ryder Cup is a fiery affair full of passion and SMASH MOUTH golf!
