Like: Tom Watson’s choice as Ryder Cup Co-Captain. Ray Floyd, like Watson, is a steely warrior who takes no prisoners (see above, from Ryder Cup 1977). For years I actually pulled for the Euros because they were such perennial whipping boys. Rooting for them was rooting for the Ryder Cup. Now the shoe is on the other foot and it’s time we get serious. Raymond will help light the fire.
Don’t Like: All the big names (Woods, Mickelson, Scott) skipping next week’s WGC Accenture Match Play Championship. That all but guarantees a dull show. However, it should send a clear message to the PGA Tour: Change the course and/or change the format.
