As the U.S. Ryder Cup Teams sets their sites on the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in Perthshire, Scotland, Captain Tom Watson has been actively spending on course time with team members, including Master’s finalist Jordan Spieth. Captain Watson is going to Gleneagles the week before the Open Championship and will invite some of the potential Ryder Cup players to join for practice on the Centenary Course.
“In the way of Ryder Cup news, Hilary and I have almost all of the clothing picked out. Ralph Lauren Polo is producing the clothing for the fittings and we’ll be asking a number of players and their caddies at the Memorial Tournament to try on the clothes there. I have double duty this year, as I am a member of The Memorial’s Captain’s Club, an advisory board to Jack Nicklaus, which meets annually at The Memorial.”
It was an all around impressive win for Bubba and he’s our first lock for the U.S. Ryder Cup team. He is an unusual player in that he curves every shot, left to right or right to left, and that makes him very interesting to watch. He wants to block out one side or the other and he can do it big time. I like somebody who can control the ball that way.
