2010 Ryder Cup Starts Today

2010 Ryder Cup

The 2010 Ryder Cup begins today at the Celtic Manor Resort in Wales. If you don’t know much about the Ryder Cup, it is golf’s biggest team format event, pitting the best players from Europe against the best players from the States. The bi-annual tournament was won by the American’s in 2008, although the US hasn’t won on European soil in 17 years.

While the European team may have several players that aren’t exactly household names — Martin Kaymer, Graeme McDowell, and Ross Fisher, just to name a few — this is by far one of the strongest European teams in recent years. I hate to be unpatriotic, but my prediction is that the US will get crushed. Sure, Tiger isn’t playing his best, but I bet you he plays well. He won’t be the problem.

The format of the event is a bit screwy — today and tomorrow you will see best ball and alternate shot formats, followed up by head to head singles matches on Sunday. This is far and away golf’s most pressure packed event, and one of the most intense events in all of sport. If the matches get close, I’d definitely recommend tuning in on Sunday.
