Ryder Cup Trash Talk Winners
By Kickntrue on 10/4/10
Well- at least in our random drawing for Ryder Cup Smack Talk winners the USA won 2 to 1.

The winners are:

Matt Otskey (USA)
DiC (Europe)
thaman69 (USA)

Matt was the big winner and will be receiving a putter from STX Golf. DiC will be recieving a dozen golf balls from Nike. An theman69... I'm still looking for an appropriate prize for you. I know I have something somewhere worthy of your appreciation!

Thanks for everyone for participating and congrats to Europe on the win. I think in 2 years we should get to add Mexico and Canada to at least make it continent against continent. Sure- it wouldn't actually add any golfers to our roster, but it would at least have to make Europeans feel a little better about ganging up on us, right?!

Special thanks to STX Golf, Nike and ... a random company to be named later for the prizes!

I agree it's not fair that entire Europe gets to beat up on little ol' USA every two yrs. Wouldn't we possibly add Mike Weir? Couldn't hurt.

Canada gave us Nickleback....reason enough to not include Canada!
mjaber says:
@Envy... I think the same thing. If we're going to let England have the rest of Europe, why can't we have the rest of North America?

I blame the USA's loss to the horrific costumes they were forced to wear

screw that i dont want no help from our neighbors. That is why a win for USA is a win for the country not just a bunch of euros running around like their countries have anything in common besides they would get the snot knocked out of them if they played as their own country. I say USA vs. the world 2012!

@envythepea- I thought about Weir, but I'm not sure in his current form he'd actually make the squad. Which guy on this year's roster would you trade him in for?
Matt Otskey says:
Thank you, thank you very much. =]
DiC says:
Wow... Thanks very much. Didn't even realise it was a give away.
Great Cup this year, very tight. Very much looking forward to the next one!

Timely prize for me too, think I'm just about out of balls!
Envythepea says:
@kickntrue - Phil! I think Weir would play better than Phil has performed historically in the Ryder Cup. I'm only half-kidding, I'm a Phil Phan...I'm always rooting for him.

How would a guy like Mike Weir feel about playing on the International Team for Presidents Cup and the "American" team for Ryder Cup play?
Envythepea says:
Oh, and I got his autograph at the Pebble Beach Pro Am this year! I was pretty jazzed to get it.
carv712 says:
Wonder if the European Team would actually benefit from a strictly English team - I'd be more worried about Justin Rose and Paul Casey than Molinari 1 and 2. I might even take a retired Nick Faldo over how Harrington played.
Envythepea says:
@carv712- Well it wouldn't be the "American" team then; it'd be the "North American" team...:-)
cpercy says:
Hey can't we have South America as well?
"No my fair cousin:
If we are marked to die, we are enow
To do our country loss: and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
God's will! I pray thee, wish not one man more."
