The Ryder Cup matches are over and the Europeans have flown back to knowing that for the next two years, the coveted cup and all that it stands for will remain in Europe.  Congratulations to Captain Bernhard Langer and his groups of talented players that not only beat the Americans, but soundly thrashed them in record breaking style.

The world is now catching up with the Americans in almost every facet of the sporting

World that was once dominated by the US.  Olympic basketball is another area that has been recently declared open country.  What’s next?  Perhaps baseball with the major leagues having many, many so called imports from South America and Asia.

Golf is now world wide and next year’s President Cup matches should be note worthy as the US goes up against the likes of Vijay Singh, Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Mike Weir, K.J. Choi, Stuart Appleby, Robert Allenby, Rory Sabbatani, and Shigeki Maruyama.  These are all established stars on the PGA tour and again despite the short history of the President’s Cup, the other so called members of the non –European countries will give the US more than it can handle.  Is it arrogance, is it leadership of the Captains, is it the individualistic attitude of the US players?  Who really knows!.  The world has caught up

And the worldly cups ownership is now totally up for grabs.
