Let's forget politics for today

The Ryder Cup 2006

Isn't it great when for some people the only time they "feel" European is during the Ryder Cup? I guess I must be one of them, it's also one of those occasions when it is acceptable to anti-American, in a sporting way. We are becoming so used to spanking the yanks when it comes to the team version of golf, this victory today is an unprecedented third win on the trot for the European team. It is therefore all the more surprising that our European golfers fail to win too many of the majors in the U.S.A., and also surprising that Tiger Woods never has a good Ryder Cup.

There are so many accolades to hand out to the Europeans, Ian Woosnam for his selections, Colin Montgomery for never losing a singles match in all the Ryder Cups he has been part of, Darren Clarke, not just for taking part so soon after his wife's death, but for the magnificent way in which he played. Then there was the rookie Henrik Stenson who was almost flawless and the Spaniards Olazabal and Garcia, so solid when teamed together. The "joker card" must surely have been Paul Casey who played the K Club's heavy course so well after "Gordon" had passed by.

The best moment must have been Casey's hole in one, what an event to come up with such a magnificent shot!

Please give the video time to load, it's worth replaying a couple of times.

Well done lads!
