US to win the Ryder Cup 16.5 - 11.5

Post by Fairwa » Tue, 29 Aug 2006 01:16:07


Did you notice the different fortunes of the US Ryder Cup players vs
(predicted) European players in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational
yesterday? IIRC the US players had together -7 strokes while the
Europeans had +32 strokes. This is a huge difference in strength. On
the basis of this difference alone I would predict a final standing of
US 16.5 vs Europe 11.5. Now its up to the little Welshman to create
some cunning plans to unsettle the US players. Lehman is a brave man
but you never know, perhaps the US will unsettle themselves. Maybe
leaving out Davis Love III was the first blunder. F

We should count how many clubs they have in their bags every couple of
holes :-)

I can tell you where 5 of those US points are coming from. I heard
tiger is going to be the first player in Ryder Cup history to play the
4 ball and alternate shot formats by himself.
