If you’re in any way inclined to follow the sporting world, you know that this weekend marks one of the biggest events of the sporting year, the Ryder Cup.
This time around, the competition is special for one huge reason, it returns to Scotland for only the second time ever. That’s exciting to avid golf fans, as Scotland is the home of golf. Considering Europe are the current holders, they’ll be anxious to retain the cup now that they’re back and playing on home turf.
I’m most interested to see how a few of my favorite Americans fare. Rickie Fowler is a good underdog, with the potential to whip out some truly incredibly performances. But there’s also Jim Furyk, who I’ll be expecting a lot from, and Phil Mickelson needs to come on strong. Everybody knows what a great golfer Phil can be, but he has a tendency to fold under pressure.
