This is a Throwback Thursday that throws back one whole week.
The occasion was the 41st Ryder Cup matches in Chaska, Minnesota. This is an event that happens every 2 years where a golf team from the United States is assembled to compete against a golf team from Europe. Sites for the contest alternate between Europe and the US.
For me, this was the fourth visit to this, the greatest spectacle in golf. Prior tournaments were held near Detroit, Louisville and Chicago.
This was the best...
The two pictures above were taken during a practice round.
Bubba Watson-wasn't playing, a vice-captain-looked like the weight of the team was on him.
When in fact, it was on the back of Davis Love III-here deep in conversation prior to the final round.
Roger Maltbie of NBC Sports, following the leaders.
Phil and Jim Furyk, another vice captain.
Rickie Fowler trying to explain what happened.
Rory McIlroy headed for the hinterlands in search of a wayward golf ball.
Henrik Stenson being interviewed, probably by a European media station.
When the day was done, it was back to the bus!
My golf traveling companion, Ed Mahr, and I attempt to explain to this fellow what The Ryder Cup was all about. He didn't care!
