24 – 26 2020 Ryder Cup, Whistle Straits, Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
It has been almost three years since the European team offered spectators from the United States the opportunity to wash their ears at Le Golf National. This marks the fourth European victory in the last five Ryder Trophies. A year later than expected, Team USA has now returned to the state of Wisconsin to seek revenge on the home turf. Another advantage for the home team: We often don’t hear ‘ole ole’ because travelers from Europe are not yet welcomed. In that sense, the European victory in the Solheim Cup a few weeks ago should have been a good inspiration for Badrek Harrington’s team.
Anyway, the Americans have chosen a long, arduous course with the Whistle Straits to make this 43rd Ryder Cup their choice. Beat Die turned a flat land on the shores of Lake Michigan into a ‘rough’ cliff subject to pay homage to Ireland’s annexation courses. Being straight is important because mistakes are punished. If you do not hit the fair or green that sometimes happens with the wind, you will end up in one of more than 1000 bunkers. Dustin Johnson will be reminded a few times this week of the 2010 PGA Championship that he thought he was done with a waste area and decided to ‘just’ field. It turned into a bunker and with two penalty strokes the ‘DJ’ could forget his first big title.

USA: 6 newcomers
Team USA is a big favorite among bookmakers. But let’s be honest: when are they not? On paper they have the best players, but in general the Europeans are the best team. Steve Stryker did not include at least six men in his twelve-man squad, of which ‘Captain America’ Patrick Reid was not a part. Will the captain, who was born and raised in the state where the game takes place this week, get everyone’s nose in the same direction? Bryson de Gambio Brooks seems to want to end the fight with Koipka on any issue. Famous golf coach Butch Harmon’s good idea: Combine the two on the first day, the opening day. The other, most logical duos are Jordan Speith / Justin Thomas and Patrick Condley / Sander Schaffel.

In contrast, the European Rider Cup squad does not seem to have any differences of opinion. Captain Harrington chose the experience with trophy legends Sergio Garcia (most points in history) and Ian Poulter (‘The Postman’ always presents at the Ryder Cup), but left Justin Rose at home in favor of Shane Lori. After Bernd Weisberger exited the automatic qualifying spot at the last minute, the Irishman received a call from Harrington. Foreman John Rahm has to see how it goes. World No. 1 struggled with stomach problems last week and missed the cut in California, where he was the only Rider Cup player active.
Team USA: Dustin Johnson, Colin Morikawa, Patrick Condley, Sander Schaffel, Justin Thomas, Bryson de Cambio, Tony Finaw, Brooks Copca, Harris English, Jordan Speith, Daniel Berger, Scotty Schifler
Team Europe: John Rahm, Victor Howland, Rory McIlroy, Tyrell Hutton, Paul Casey, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Lee Westwood, Tommy Fleetwood, Shane Lowry, Ian Poulter, Bernd Wiesberger

24 – 26 LPGA, Arkansas Championship, Pinnacle Country Club, Rogers, Arkansas. Brigenjelt: $ 2,300,000
LPGA Season Home Stretch Begins. Florida has six of the best female players in the world in the tournament before finals. In the heart of the United States, the Arkansas Championship is being played this week at the Country Club, which has been at its peak since its inaugural edition in 2007. The list of top players includes Lydia Coe, Infi Park and two-time winner Stacy Lewis, who studied at the University of Arkansas. There are five of the top ten players in the world, of course Anne Van Dam. After D8 in Portland, Race to CME wants to take his best form throughout the season as much as possible in the Globe and retain his full game ownership.

Dan Hussing still can’t rest on his laurels. With the victory of his tournament in Ireland he took a big step towards the European tour, but in the meantime he was fifteenth on the road to Mallorca. The Top-20 deserves a travel card, so Housing should not give up some more work in the end. Time is up for Robbie van West (place 87), five matches from the end. He needs a win to get promoted.

This will be a particularly difficult story for Devi Weber in her ‘Road to LPGA’. With only three matches to play in sixteen matches, she is out of the top 40, while only the top five women of the season are allowed to advance to the most important round in the United States. She finished after a brief event called T18 in Alabama last weekend, can she do even better at the El Dorado shootout?
