Ok, well that was like on 6 and it wasn't on Monday. He stole a half point as well, while I'm sure he feels bad about that, he did his part in coming back when it wasn't being left for him.

a point on friday is just as important as a point on monday, or half-point in this case

Just saw highlights of the presser on ESPN.....felt awful for Hunter as he broke down in tears but thought Cink's words about him were extremely classy. All in all I think the US did a lot better than many expected they would. My disappointment is with Phil, who continues to be basically awful in Ryder Cup competition despite today's fine outing. had he given us just one more point over the weekend we have the Cup right now. And yes, nice to see Tiger making progress despite a few really bad shots/putts over the course of the 4 days.

Well in that case I blame Dustin Johnson for continuing to be a choke artist.

Um - doesn't that go for pretty much everyone?

Well yes, but Phil is the veteran of the team......I expect a bit more from him than the newbies. And yeah, like GKJ said above, Dustin kind of choked again over the weekend but I sort of give him a little pass since he is a 1st timer.

The US was already in a bad spot when Fowler made that mistake, no? I'm pretty sure Europe was on the fairway and Fowler's ball was stuck in the mud. Now anything can happen but it's not like Fowler screwed up a sure win on the hole; they were already at a disadvantage unless I'm misremembering.

Maybe terrible wasn't the right word. Woods was good with his irons during the whole tournament but when paired with Stricker both his driving and putting were off. It was Stricker finishing off those team matches with his putting. He certainly ended like the Tiger we're used to seeing though.

Lots of disappointments for the USA though. D.Johnson looked like a HS golfer with his putting on the first 3 days. Kuchar, as you mention. Mickelson the first 3 days. Cink down the stretch in singles play giving away some easy holes and ending up with only a halve. Bubba Watson, bless him for what he's going through but he was just awful and took his putting cues from Johnson. Mahan throughout but especially today. Furyk throughout.

I still think the Americans did well considering how bad a lot of them were playing the majority of the time.

Why do you feel bad for a PGA Tour player that looked like a 10 handicap when the pressure was on?
