Jim Furyk didn't say whether he is a big believer in fate, but he remembers captain Ben Crenshaw wagging a finger and telling the media, "I have a good feeling about tomorrow. That's all I'm gonna say.” With that proclamation, Crenshaw left the news conference after Day 2 of the 1999 Ryder Cup. With the U.S. trailing 10-6 heading into Sunday’s singles, Crenshaw’s proclamation was golf's version of a mic drop.

“I remember every damn word of it,” Furyk said.

For a fistful of euros, U.S. Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk ought to consider taking out a classified ad in Le Parisien, a French daily newspaper, ahead of today’s singles matches at the 42nd Ryder Cup.

Wanted: One great American Ryder Cup player. Can start immediately. Benefits include insurance, three weeks’ vacation, and being an American hero for life. All applicants welcome. And, oh, we really need just one.

When the U.S. team of Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas parred the 18th hole for a 1-up victory in morning four-balls Friday, it seemed to be the beginning of a dominating performance for an American side that hasn’t won a Ryder Cup in Europe in 25 years.

The U.S. took a two-point lead into the afternoon of the first day. Captain Jim Furyk couldn’t have asked for more, especially overseas.

Retirees Sandy and Dave Dickman of Woodbury, Minn., live not far from Hazeltine National Golf Club, but they were unable to buy tickets for the 2016 Ryder Cup. It was sold out.

So, when they heard the event was heading to Le Golf National near Paris, they were all-in right away.

 


Hey, somebody has to fetch the croissants
Now that we see that U.S. captain Jim Furyk benched Phil Mickelson for Saturday’s Ryder Cup matches, why exactly was Mickelson selected for the team?

This perception of locker-room chemistry being so important belies the fact that golf is not a team game. Perform on the course, and pick the best players who are playing well.

Career record in the Ryder Cup for Tiger Woods, who added two more losses to his ledger Saturday as the Americans fell behind Europe, 10-6, at Le Golf National near Paris. Woods is 0-3 this week.
