Why the U.S. Lost the Ryder Cup

Because American captain Tom Lehman's four assistant captains - Corey Pavin, Loren Roberts, Duffy Waldorf and David Ogrin - are all past Texas Open champions.

I mean, a person would have to be nuts to think that having Texas Open champs on your side would be a good thing, right?

    Right. Because Texas Open champs of late have been such because they were not on the Ryder Cup. Glad to know that the oldest stop on Tour won't have to compete with the Ryder Cup anymore. Predictions for Valhalla? Another trip to the woodshed. And we'll lose the next 100 Ryder Cups because in America, winning and losing means less and less. In Europe, winning is important and sportsmanship is hardwired, so players don't have to do both at once. Seems the two amount to multi-tasking in America. How many times have you heard an American golfer say, "I'm just going to go out there and try to have fun."? Captain Woosnam said it best: "It's only fun when you win."
