Strange thing about it is that this tournament doesn't appear in his owgr record:

http://www.owgr.com/en/Ranking/PlayerProfile.aspx?playerID=1547&year=1993

Either:
Because it was somehow "unofficial", or:
Because the Challenge Tour events didn't earn owgr points at that time.

But it's a very "Phil" thing to do, to play in an event like that!

I know it doesn't really reflect exactly what points have been made above but Tiger is third on the all time ET wins table with 40. Obviously this is messed up by his 14 majors and 18 WGC's, leaving only 8 regular ET wins. A few of which are probably the Johnnie Walker or co-sanctioned Aussie wins.


Hadn't realized that DJ also has 17 PGAT wins.

More than Tiger?  I don't think so.  laughing

Is Tiger even qualified for 2018?

The topic starter was about Vice-Captains. And Tiger is a vice Captain for Jim Furyk. And based on Westwood's position in the World Points, Woods is a lot closer to making the US RC team than Westwood is.

20  Wins in Europe for Westwood by my count

9: Woods  (3 Opens, 3 WGCs in Europe, 3 regular Euro Events)
3: Mickelson (1 Open, 1 Scottish, 1 Challenge)
1: Spieth (1 Open)
1: Fowler (1 Scottish)
5: Koepka (Turkey, 4 Challenge)
======
19

Not counting Zach, who has one Open win, who could very well be on the team.

Talk about dodgy counting!

Firstly, Turkey is not in Europe it's in Asia.

Secondly, aren't you scraping the barrel adding Challenge Tour events? Why don't you also include practice days at the Open when some of the Americans probably won a skins game against their buddies, that's a win in Europe right? But then you'd have to include all of Westwood's wins, there's probably a club championship and some Junior Opens to add to the total.

In my opinion, it was pretty dodgy to only count events in Europe, and not European Tour Events.

Even if you take out Tiger, the rest of team has more European Tour wins than Westwood. Mickelson has 10, DJ has 6, Spieth has 3, Fowler has 2, Koepka has two.

and FYI, Part of Turkey is in Europe.  There was talk of the 2022 Ryder Cup being held in Turkey for crying out loud.  So Fricking what Koepka''s win is a few hundred miles from Euroep

http://www.rydercup.com/usa/news/turkey-withdraws-bid-host-2022-ryder-cup

BTW, on another board, a Brit claims that North and South America is one continent because there is no natural waterway that separates  North and South America.

But he refuses to acknowledge that by that definition that Europe, Asia and Africa are just one continent.  Because there is no natural waterway that completely separates these land masses.  Is this what you are taught in Britain?

I still fail to see the point you were trying to make about Furyk and his PGAT wins .. just seemed like a low-grade trolling attempt to me

It was just a commentary of the claim that three of the Vice Captains had "decent" PGATour Careers. If 6 wins, 5 wins and 3 wins are "decent" PGAT careers, then I think the bar has been lowered.

IMO, decent = at least 10 wins.

Haha. Every country, and every continent as well, has its fair share of clowns. Britain too. Similarly, we don't think all Americans like going on shooting sprees in schools.

The Ryder Cup is going to be in Europe. Davie's point was about winning in Europe. It was a pretty clear point, just because a lot of events in Asia and Africa count as European Tour events, it doesn't mean they are in Europe. The Masters counts as a ET event and that's not in Europe either.

So I'm not sure why you are trying to counter his points with irrelevant facts? Liverpool and Real Madrid are both in Europe and between them they have won more European Cups than Tiger. Even Notts Forest has more European Cups than Tiger!

How far do you want to drill it down. Why just Europe? Why not France? How about going to the Paris Metro area? or Le Club National? Only Tommy Fleetwood can claim a win there among potential players.

But I think Bubba is the only potential US Player to play a tournament there. I think I saw that Justin Thomas is playing the French Open in a few weeks.

Again, I was following up on the claim that Paddy, Luke, and GMac have had decent PGAT careers, and if that is true, I think the "hurdle" for decent career is too low. IMO, Decent = 10 wins or more

He seems very committed to that argument. It might stem from the symbolism of Olympic Five Ring.

not counting co-sanctioned events would take away two of Westwood's wins but none of those would be Majors or WGCs. (obviously). Two minor co-sanctioned events with the Asian Tour, in Korea and Malaysia.

Sod all that. Much more important will be the European team flag/logo after Brexit. What's it going to be? One of the yellow stars in-filled with a mini union jack? A US style blue and yellow stripe affair with small union jack in a corner? A patchwork quilt of all the individual countries' flags?

Let's get this year's sideshow out of the way and get on to the burning logo design question.

I was referring to the fact that in most cases the RC captain was one of the previous vice-captains and since the following Ryder Cup will be in America it may to some make sense to choose a captain that has had a decent PGA tour career and that three of the vice-captains have had - relatively speaking, since you insist - a decent PGA tour career. I wasn't making reference to the current US Ryder Cup captain, vice-captains, previous captains etc. and to be honest not sure why you have brought it up.

For the record I think Jim Furyk has had an "excellent" career and I have the utmost respect for what he has achieved.

PS 10 PGA tour victories = a good career (at the very least) OK

Why would they have to change a flag?

Although it's an EU flag, it's not USA v the European Union, it's USA v Continental Europe.

If there were any golfers from Norway or Switzerland who were in qualifying positions, they'd be eligible. Nothing will change post Brexit.

Good point Roller.

Maybe a circle of harmonious European stars with a lonely union jack sad face emoji isolated in the corner?

"...it's USA v Continental Europe...."

Huh? My understanding that continental (and Wiki confirms) that Continental Europe does not include GB&I. So no Rory? no Rosey? No Fleetwood?

Isn't the Ryder Cup just Europe v USA? I'm no expert on this.

Started off as GB, then became GB&I, and then the team selection was extended to include continental European golfers in addition to GB&I... so became team Europe.

Maybe like Eurovision in the future it will keep getting extended to countries outside Europe like Turkey and UAE.

Probably more likely it's the Yanks that need additional countries.

I think all the US team wants to play 5 matches instead of 4 matches in the first 4 sessions.

Its not a sport where the active participants are limited like soccer and basketball. The golf course can accommodate 5 (or even 6) matches at atime, but a former Euro Captain told (Jacklin) the Euro committee to keep the 4 matches per session.

I see the PGA of A has taken preemptive action on their leaderboard and placed American flags by the names of RC'ers Lane, Montgomerie & Broadhurst. Too late.

The US usually have a deeper team so it’d make sense for them to play 5 matches in stead of 4.

I don't really follow the OWGR, and ranking based on a diet of 72 hole stroke play events doesn't necessarily equate to match play success....

BUT, looking at the top 20 today.....
interesting to note that 8 of them are US, and 9 are EU.
and to pick a team of 12 from the rankings you only need to go down to 26 to complete the US team and 27 for EU.

All the indications pointing towards a very high quality event in Paris this year.

Five leading players not qualified for the Ryder Cup as of the US Open are Sergio, Poulter, Stenson, Casey, and Rafa.

Will Casey be the player that is snubbed, once again?
