I’ll be watching the Ryder Cup but I won’t be waving my flag

todaySeptember 26, 2023


Until the 1970s few paid much attention to the Ryder Cup. Then the European team added players from all over Europe — at Jack Nicklaus’ suggestion — and the competition amped up thanks to golfers such as Spain’s Seve Ballesteros and Germany’s Bernard Langer.


But it wasn’t until the 90s before the popularity of the Cup surged and made it one of the world’s major sporting events. Like millions of others from around the world, I became a huge fan, waving the Red, White and Blue.


I still love the Cup, but it isn’t the Us vs. Them it used to be. The majority of the Euros now live in the USA and are regulars on the PGA Tour. There are only three Euros who still live across the pond.


My favorite players? Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Viktor Hovland and Tommy Fleetwood are among them.


I’ll be watching the play from Rome this week, but I won’t be waving my flag.
