You’ve got to give credit where credit is due: Tom Lehman is pulling out all the stops to win the Ryder Cup this year. First, he actually convened a special “bonding” week in Ireland for the players to get “touchy, feely” and develop some team comraderie. That’s the same recipe Nancy Lopez used to get her gals to win the Solheim Cup last year. During the bonding week, players sneaked into the rooms of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson at 3 a.m., apparently to give both players a noogie or maybe a wedgie. Now we know that Tiger sleeps with his shirt on! And that Phil Mickelson doesn’t sleep! (More from NYT.)

Now, Lehman has called out his secret weapon: Dennis Trixler, a former PGA pro who caddied for Lehman. Trixler won’t be giving any pointers, but he will be the team chef for the week. “He knows his way around the grill,” Lehman boasted. (More from LA Times). This week is already shaping up to be an exciting week, at least in the kitchen.
