Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor
October 18, 2011
Some have called it the most extraordinary playing ever seen in this spectacular sporting competition, and the DVD will no doubt confirm these statements.
The tournament was in Wales and the scenic Celtic Manor Resort was the first time host, however, powerful rain storms set the tournament up for another first, the game had a Monday finish, as Europe, together with the USA, ended with a fourth day decider.
After three days of tough gaming, not to mention that it was in front of the 40,000 strong crowd, rain soaked but never faltering in passion and spirit, Europe’s resolute 12 had managed a surely momentous three point lead. On day three and with all 24 golfers out on the course the hosts, encouraged by the authoritative Lee Westwood, took five and half points out of a possible six.
The start of the first ever Monday in this tournament saw the mist slowly lift and the sun finally start to shine through. The fans had seen Tiger Woods lead an assault as Captain Corey’s boys boosted the scoreboard. For Europe, poker like Luke Donald, enticing Ian Poulter and the outstanding Miguel Angel Jimenez all managed to deliver precious points. Then it came down to McDowell – that last man standing in the competition, already The US Open Champion, already The Wales Open Champion, surely he could bring one of the most prestigious golf trophies ever designed home…
