MOLIWOOD? MOLI DID!
What a Ryder Cup that was. What a magnificent European win against an American team that “will dominate the competition for the next 10 years.”
It’s no surprise Europe won again with the USA imploding... again. Alleged fighting, Phil (right) declaring the course was too hard for him, the self-titled Captain America arguing with everyone and some very questionable decisions from Jim Furyk – who in their right mind would play Mickelson in a foursome?!
But how good were Europe? The rookies looked like they had been playing Ryder Cup for years – a vast improvement on the rookies Darren Clarke had at Hazeltine. Sergio hitting some form, justifying his pick and becoming the all-time record points scorer; the continued success of Rose and Stenson; and good captaincy from Thomas Bjorn (has he discovered a way to stop the ball going so far?).
But a final word for Francesco Molinari. How fitting that he should secure the point that won us the Cup. Not only because he went unbeaten for the week, but because at Medinah in 2012, his half point in the final match against Tiger won us the trophy but seemed to be totally overlooked by the media in favour of Martin Kaymer, whose victory ensued we’d only retain it.
Well played Frankie, the only man to secure the winning points twice.
