Europa slo USA i Ryder Cup - vanskelig å svelge for amerikanerne
Amerikanerne var temmelig overrasket over at Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson & co ikke klarte å slå europeerne i Ryder Cup. Kritikken om at det europeiske laget var ute av form og at Ryder Cup ikke ble hva det burde vært siden lagene ble tatt ut et år i forveien, har stilnet.

Fra den andre siden av Atlanterhavet har vi sakset følgende amerikanske betraktning rundt det som skjedde på The Belfry:

Reliving last weekend's Ryder Cup may be painful for fans of the American side, but the truth of the matter is that it was a well-played competition and the Yanks just got "Brooklined" during Sunday's singles matches. You will recall in 1999 it was the Americans who staged a fierce rally on Sunday to claim the Cup.

   Some will debate whether Captain Curtis Strange went with the right strategy by back-loading his Sunday lineup. Tiger Woods never got to be a factor, they will say. But that's golf. Sometimes the ball rolls your way and sometimes it doesn't. The European squad seized the early momentum and reclaimed the Cup. A few highlights:

  • Colin Montgomerie earned kudos for his impressive play throughout the weekend. But longtime Cup participant Bernhard Langer also showed his mettle throughout the competition.
  • Lee Westwood picked a good time to rediscover his competitive fire.
  • David Toms was a significant contributor on the American side.
  • Paul Azinger is truly an inspiration. Remember not so many years ago when he had no hair while waging a battle against cancer?
To be certain emotions did ride high throughout the competition, but this year's event certainly did seem to have a more civil tone. Here's to a bright future for this exciting event, scheduled next in 2004 for Oakland Hills in Michigan."
