So players #7, 8, 9, 10, 12 and 14 in the standings. So tell me again why did we need to expand to 6 captain's picks?
And #11 would have been on there if he wasn't hurt, curious if Koepka will be able to play much if at all

Sergio, Poulter and Lowry are captain's picks for the Euros. Justin Rose told to stay home despite his strong Cup record and his past success at Whistling Straits.

Can't believe JRose isn't on their roster but not sure who I'd swap him with of the picks

Even this year year could be an issue, phil busting brooksies ball about a club, led to him firing his caddie, now Phil's a captain?

Assuming US will win singles, how far back is too far back after the first 2 days? 3? 4?
i think there's a real possibility to make up a big deficit like 3-4.5 or so. It will be interesting to see what the market is if that is the case but if I don't like it I'll just ride the thing out based on how it's playing out and how I'm feeling about it all. I do really like the final roster of the Euros for the most part.

I love blake but this is not a good look, and explains a lot about us struggles last few times if its whole team mentality, the euros seem to get that team dynamic so much better

His point is incredibly valid, we are a Me First society and the whole team thing is weird in an individual sport

I love that he posts that when so many are afraid to face the truth (Momma, I just killed a man)

I think the main difference is that the majority of the US team would rather go 5-0 in a team loss than 0-5 (or only get to play one or two matches) in a win. It's the opposite for the Euros. I'm not sure there's much anyone can do about it in the short term, so the US's best chance is to just out talent them (and course setup) enough to win. And this team can do that, but if it starts going bad, the US team has a tough time reversing momentum.

I think the Euro team is just ok. Hovland is going to be a star I think, but several of their guys are pretty bad course fits. Westwood, Poulter, Hatton and Fitzpatrick are going to have to putt their ass off to win, because they will be miles behind on approach shots most of the time. Though Westy was sending it pretty good this summer

Obviously we've talked about Scottsdale before as a great venue. Where else out there?
I'd say Cali, Oregon, Washington

It will be tough to pitch Scottsdale when it's still upper 90's this weekend which is comfortable for me but still hot for most

I found it to be relatively chilly out there for most part.

98 in Sept is a lot different than 98 in August, that's for sure. LV is typically 10 degrees cooler than here but same concept with the monsoon in July/Aug and humidity

Ryder Cup 2033 at the Olympic Club in Cali. Yeah I don't know why they don't move the FedEx playoffs around.
Not familiar with that club, pretty sure there's an awesome Olympic Club in Seattle, they could do Bandon easily too. Even any of the clubs in Rancho Santa Fe where Tiger/Phil played or Vegas at Shadow Creek would be great

Interesting how the narrator mentions that Pete Dye would probably really like the course to play faster but that it really doesn't and is set up to play slow. After looking at the drone shots and how ridiculously narrow some of those fairways are, I can't imagine trying to play that course when conditions are hard and fast.

Here is a terrific YouTube video (with a ton of drone coverage) of Whistling Straights to get everyone ready for the Ryder Cup this weekend. Click on the link below.

Andy Johnson is a great follow if you really like course architecture and design. His podcast with Brendan Porath is pretty good too. He gets Geoff Ogilvy on regularly on his other podcast which is always good stuff
