Needs more of the best players in the world, or different sorts of formats to usual. Or maybe just dragons, definitely needs more dragons.

A couple of smarter Captain's picks would have helped the Int'l team - but really this US team is unbeatable. Could be the biggest winning margin ever .. gonna be 6 points behind after day 2

Captains picks were not great. There's a few really good Japanese players that were over looked and someone like Ryan Fox could have been a bomb in 4BBB format and single match play. Really good year on the euro tour and played World Cup last year. Can go wild and make a bunch of birds but can also have a double or 2 a round. Think it would have been better than Lahiri.

Agreed ... or perhaps Scott Hend?

Yeah he would have been another good pick, maturity power and usually a very solid player.

Totally agree with Ryan Fox; definitely a better choice than Lahiri. Scott Hend - plenty of experience and can almost match it off the tee with the bombers like Johnson and Koepka.

And as for Lahiri...if missing a 3 footer which effectively lost the cup last time wasn't enough...how the hell does he get a gig?

Bump would have been a better bet.

At the very least, his stories include more dragons

Logic and being a kiwi 😂 Using someone who can hit it a mile and can putt vs someone who can't putt and gets banned from playing a hole...

There's a good chance that for the first time the competition will be decided before the singles matches. 8 points on offer tomorrow and the way the US are going they might close it out!

Well they can give me a slab of CC 20YO and I'll captain the ship or get rid of price and put Norman or Ernie in charge...
