2016 Ryder Cup.

Posted by

It was not a big surprise when the Europeans chose Darren Clarke as their 2016 Ryder Cup captain. It was a surprise however when earlier this week the USA had decided that Davis Love III was the to be the chosen one to lead the USA back into the win column. Davis Love III was the captain for the 2012 event held at Medinah when they were waxed on the last day to loose 16½ to 11½. The good thing is two mild mannered “gentleman” are involved. There will be no “War by the Shore” at Hazeltine. It is believed that Davis Love III won the popularity contest over the other nominees, rumored to be Fred Couples, Steve Stricker, and Paul Azinger. Darren Clarke won the European popularity contest over Miguel Angel Jimenez, and Thomas Bjorn. His experience with the Ryder cup is not one of failure as he has won six of the seven he has been involved with the Ryder Cup. Darren Clarke’s passion for the Ryder Cup cannot be denied and he will want to do well. Davis Love III has a lot to prove. After the hiccup at Medinah he will want to show that the USA can compete again at an event they owned for the first 24 matches when Team USA was the victor in 23 three of those matches. The tide has turned. The Europeans are riding the victory wave at the moment. The winning Captain is a hero. The loser has every decision questioned, by the media and Team members alike. Davis Love III cannot have another loss.
