2012 Ryder Cup
For anyone following along with the celebratory antics of the European team after the Ryder Cup, this will come as no surprise.
In all fairness, the Europeans had a reason to celebrate.
It was hard to blame the Chicagoland gathering, since in this city, collapses have become a regular occurrence recently.
Europe has won the Ryder Cup, completing an historic comeback from a 4-point deficit to beat the United States.
Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley picked right up where they left off at the 39th Ryder Cup.
Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker were the only two Americans to lose two matches Friday and will not be in the lineup for Saturday morning’s Foursomes.
It wasn’t just Keegan Bradley’s golf game that stole the show, it was the Ryder Cup rookie’s yelling, fist pumps and yes, even chest bumps.
Keegan Bradley is 26 years old and becoming a crowd favorite here at Medinah.
Brandt Snedeker won’t have to wait long to get his first taste of the Ryder Cup. He will join Jim Furyk in the opening foursomes match Friday against Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy, the No. 1 player in the world.
Thursday was just a warm up, and the United States and Europe took different approaches to their practice holes at Medinah with a main contrast in attitude.
Davis Love III became the third straight U.S. captain to pick a Ryder Cup rookie, and the first captain since 1997 who had to spend a pick on Jim Furyk.
