what a fantastic day of golf it was...was glued to the telly...
But let's cut to the chaste...who's the weak link so far for either teams???
My choice for the first day is pretty obvious - Harrington is one for Europe...but surprise (maybe not) Tiger for the US. He's not cut out for team play...especially foursomes...fourball..not a problem as he's playing his own game...foursomes is totally different. And to miss two putts...both prob no more than 3 feet is a shocker...what makes it even worse is that he did it on consecutive greens...and you cant keep on using the excuse of the greens...Bjorn/Clarke, Mickelson/Toms & Monty/Langer putted beautifully all day...
I agree with Curtis pairing for the foursomes...get the rookies
out there, and now he's in the situation where all his team
has played, while Sam has 3 more on the sideline, and I'm not
sure how he's gonna blood them for this afternoon.
My view on this would have been to get your top guns in fourballs comp...and let the rookies team up in foursomes, as they tend to lift that little bit more playing foursomes on their debut - Sutton/Verplank & Furky/Cink.
let's hope the great play and sportsman ship continue on for the weekend...
* personally...would have been a nice touch if Europe had given Mickelson the putt on the last... *
