A list of some things we didn’t expect at the Ryder Cup this year:
–American domination. Right now the Americans lead in three of the four morning fursome matches. If that holds up, the Americans would have a four-point lead going to afternoon four-ball matches. No one saw that coming,
–A rookie would lead them. Clearly Keegan Bradley is the soul of the American team right now. You wonder if captain Davis Loves plays him this afternoon will Bradley have anything left in the tank for singles. But how do you keep him out this afternoon with partner Phil Mickelson. Maybe Mickelson sits this afternoon, too,
–The Americnas looking better without Tiger Woods. Woods has the morning off and will play in the afternoon with Steve Stricker. But Woods struggled so bad yesterday, and this morning the Americans are playing so well, you have to scratch you head.
–Colin Montgomerie would be so good on television. Yes, Monty has traded his scowl for a smile and seems quite comfortable on television. And he seems informative, too. Who knew?
