Americans win the 2008 RyderCup!

Sunday, September 21st, 2008

Americans win the Ryder Cup this year pretty easily.  (without trying)

I think it was really unfair for the Europeans as the American players had better players this year.  Well, I cannot prove it by any statistics but take a look at how the teams faired on Sunday here as proof:

As you can see, every American player beat every European player today, except for one halve.
Now, that’s hard to do unless you got some great players.

Azinger asserted repeatedly in the months leading up to the matches that experience was overrated, that what he preferred to have populating his team were hot hands and not wise heads. It was the reason he wanted to change the qualifying structure and to double his captain’s picks to four.

Split equally among rookies and veterans, the U.S. team clearly benefited from the infusion of new talent. The new blood posted a slightly better record, going 9-12-8 and scoring a collective 13 points. They went 4-1-1 in singles on Sunday, a record for singles wins by rookies. The U.S. veterans went 10-8-5 to contribute to 12½ points. They went 3-3 in singles.

Anthony Kim waxed Sergio Garcia in the first singles match to set the tone for the day, but he preceded that with infectious enthusiasm that seemed to light a fire under Phil Mickelson. Hunter Mahan won 3½ points and was the only player on either side to escape defeat playing five matches.
