Default Golf

Since .03% of this forum members are strong followers of this sports, therefore, I will only create this thread as a generic thread for all golf news, results for years to come.

Next up: Ryder Cup!!One of the most prestigious golf tournament which is played every two years.

12 of America's finest led by Tom Lehman will face of with the best of 12 of Europe led by Ian Woosnam. Last two times the European handed the Americans a beating that most think can't be matched in years to come. This year the matches will be held at the K Club, Ireland. This tournament is very different than the normal golf tournaments.

1st there will be four ball. Two from each team will play against each other and each player will use their own balls. Thus it is named as four ball. There will be four matches. Then in the after noon there will be foursome. Where each team will alternate shots amoug their team (group of two). Each team will use one ball. There will four such matches.
2nd day same thing will happen. This would total of 16 matches.
3rd day there will be 12 single matches (match play format). That brings the total number of matches to 28. Each match worth a point. a Draw would get a half point for each team. The team goal is to get to 14.5 points. Americans are treditionally strong in singles matchplay. The Europe wants to bury their counterpart early.

Tomorrow the Ryder cup 2006 starts. Here are the followings for the fourball matchups.
