What I Took Away From The Ryder Cup
Whether you love this bi-annual competition or not, there's no question that the Ryder Cup provided golf viewers and fans with more drama...more highs and lows...than you get from any other televised golf event. The emotions run higher than with any major, and the players are more wrapped up in external pressures and influences than with any other event, in my opinion.
I'll admit that I didn't glue myself to the television for the endless hours of coverage, but I did watch enough to take away a few things that made me go "Hmmmmmmm". So, here are my sub-stories, so to speak:

For once the pros didn’t play like wooden Indians. Players on both sides shown lots of emotions, they smiled, laughed and cheered. Not only their team mates but their opponents too; when they made a good shot. All of this made for good entrainment and showed that the pros are human too and not as I said wooden Indians USG but too much restriction on the players actions. I know that golf is a gentleman’s game but the USGA should let them show some emotions as long as their gentleman about.
