Participating past Ryder Cup Captains include Ben Crenshaw, Tom Kite, Tom Lehman, Corey Pavin, Dave Stockton, Hal Sutton, Lee Trevino and Lanny Wadkins.

joe jones says:
I would love to hear some of the zingers going on in these groups. There are some athletes that are pretty good sticks playing, Trevino will have a field day, He talks while he is in mid swing and will have am ongoing commentary with everyone. Who cares whether this "event" has any merit at all. It is good for the game.

My friend and i entered in the drawing for tickets agreeing if one won the other got to go also. I did not get drawn but he did for four tickets friday and saturday. We were so pumped. My grandma lives outside chicago free housing and everything. so i was going to check that off my bucket list...then he called me to say he forgot to purchase them before the deadline. should he still be my friend?

It depends on how he makes up for his error. Takes you to the most exclusive course in the area and pays for everything, including lunch? Forgive him. ;)
