The Big Easy report

Like most golf fans, I spent a lot of this past weekend in front of the television watching the Ryder Cup at the K Club in Ireland. I’ve always thought it is one of the best sporting events in the world, but even by the normal high standards you expect in this event, I reckon this year’s Cup was really something extra special. The Irish put on a great show out there. And it’s hard to imagine a team playing better together than the Europeans did this time around. It was an incredible performance.

If you think about the millions of people who would have been watching at home, this was a great advert for the game as a whole. The golf was very competitive, but it was played in the right spirit, which is always good to see. I thought the standard of golf played was incredible – I mean, the European team put on the best short game show I think I’ve ever seen. Man, the chips and putts were going in from everywhere! That’s always going to be hard to live with. But I thought the Americans were very classy in defeat. And the galleries were amazing. (More from the Ernie Els blog)
