Will it take a Miracle at Medinah?
Where have all the great shots gone? That’s what American golf fans must be asking when the talk turns to the biennial team event know of course as The Ryder Cup, played this year on American soil at Medinah. During the event’s first 56 years, the stars and stripes dominated the competition but the United States and Europe have been playing since 1927, so we can all do the math. Since 1985 with the Europeans led by the late Seve Ballesteros, team red, white and blue has been just that, blue! Just four cup victories over the last 26 years. Narrow victories coming in ’91 and ’93, an amazing comeback under Ben Crenshaw in ’99 at Brookline and a whopping five point victory at Valhalla with Paul Azinger guiding the squad back in 2008.
