Well the Ryder Cup is under way with Graeme McDowell hitting the first tee-shot which went left and just stopped short of trouble. Jim Furyk did pretty much the same as well. It just shows that even the straightest hitters on the tour get affected by nerves.
Ian Poulter was interviewed half an hour before the first group tee-off and he said it was the most excited he’d ever felt and that it doesn’t get any bigger than this. Poulter and Rose are playing against Woods and Stricker and I think he’s right, it doesn’t get much bigger than that.
The first few holes have all been halved as I write this, with players being a little bit cautious which is understandable, but i’m sure it won’t take long to get going.
Three long day’s in front of the TV ahead, I hope you will enjoy as much as I will.
