British bookmakers Have at least nNot much faith in the European team 24 months ago they were humiliated 19 – 9 at the Straits of Whistle. It was the biggest win since the switch to 28 matches in 1979.
This brings us straight to the table: Four fours and four four balls on Friday. On Saturday and twelve singles on Sunday.
The team that scores 14.5 or more points wins the Ryder Cup. With a tie of 14 – 14, the USA retained the minor gold trophy.
Why did America like it?. Well, Team USA has always been the favorite since the first Ryder Cup in 1927.
USA won 27 out of 43 matches. In 1969 and 1989, Europe drew the best fourteen times and twice.
In 1979, the balance of power shifted after British and Irish players were reluctantly accepted into the team.
In 21 encounters The ‘new style’ conquered the Old World eleven, of which from the beginning of the seventh century.
The truth is, it was always very exciting. During the period 1927 – 1977, the US scored 268.5 party points against 155.5 for the GB&I. After 1979, Europe reached 295.5 points and Team USA 292.5 points.
Americans There are six players out of the top 10 in the world rankings this week. Rickie Fowler is ranked as low as 35th.
Europe produces four top 10 players, but fewer than five men are ranked lower in the world than Fowler.
Captain Zach Johnson has six players from the squad that mined Europe in 2021. That has a lot to do with the arrival of the LIV tour. Only Brooks Koepka nearly grabbed enough points to qualify. He received a wild card from Zach Johnson.
Europe He plays with seven members of the 2021 team. Sergio Garcia is the only LIV golfer to receive a wild card under normal circumstances. He tried to control things by wanting to pay a fine of almost one million, but he is no longer a member of the DP Word Tour.
(Why does Coigba participate with the Americans? In the US you only need to be a member of the PGA of America, not the PGA Tour).
