It's a shame the US team doesn't have a real hate figure like that awful Boo person two years ago who rode his driver like a bucking horse.

It was quite odd during Pavin's speech at the opening ceremony when he kept referring to her, almost as if she was a co-captain. Nice that he thinks so much of her of course but it looked strange the fourth or fifth time.
Butts

She has a professional role within the team, not entiely sure what though.
Tank Girl

all the more reason to hate her butts
Tank Girl

just quickly reading i am not sure her self-appointed role as 'captainess' has any official approval.



its just not golf is it?
Pond Life

I have seen spitting at golf and I thought that was the end, How wrong I was...
Tank Girl

some of her rivals are referring to her as 'unhinged'. this may be a little harsh, she is perhaps just a bit more forward than the golfing establishment is used to .

The yanks yesterday had to jettison their designer sportswear and send someone to one of the merchandise tents to buy something that was fit for purpose.

So pleased I'm 'working from home' tomorrow and that the Molinaris came good on the 18th. All the weather has done is concentrate the action even more into one of the most gripping sporting events on the calendar.

It's good to see the fans cheering American shots head for bunkers, really warms the cockles of the heart.  
Late Doors

Iíll tell you a little golf anecdote if i may without sullying the thread

*turns into Tarby*

On Friday I asked my Golf mad mate at work if he was playing this weekend ?

Yes mate he said but Iíve got a dilemma

Really mate I said, what ? you donít know whether to wear the Rupert trousers or waistcoat or both ? (we have a great craic lol)

No he said. Apparently his handicap is 7.4 and this was his last match of the season and if he deliberately fecked it up his handicap would be increased to 7.5 which when rounded up would make him 8 and give him an edge in the forthcoming winter season. His opponent was also in the same situation

This just about sums it up for me with this handicap malarkey. I was always told it was a honorable gentlemans and ladies game where honour and integrity were paramount

It is mate, he said, but i have this impression they are still playing NOW deliberately hitting shots into the car park judging by his refusal to respond to my texts.

at our office they block anything like this the bastads, wimbleond, world cup, anything.

rory and cink have not halved a single hole.
Tank Girl

we need 14.5 points to win.
Butts

Poulter looked into the camera this morning and said 'I guarantee to deliver a point'. He's two up, thank goodness.
Butts

Chris Evans on the radio is following Woods around and remarked, after he'd skewed a shot and lost the hole, that he had his' fire hydrant face on'.

he's bonkers

havng a slightly rough spell now.

You can say that again, it's on a knife edge. Cink has got Rory where he wants him, he's looking a bit daunted for the first time. Cink is a beautiful player.

rory is not finished yet though.
lee is in trouble too.

IT IS NOT TIME TO PANIC YET

*panics*
Butts

Westwood 2 down with 3 to play. Furyk seems to have forgotten how to putt thank God and the barrel-chested Jimenez a 'fantastico' chip in at the 8th. I have done two minutes work today (tops).
Butts

Poulter chips in from 80 feet!
Tank Girl

westwood loses, it looks like we might be down to the molinari brother that cannot putt and after that it will be all on graham mcd.

SAKES!
Tank Girl

luke and poults both on match holes.
Butts

We need 3.5 points and are up in four.
Tank Girl

fisher is having a disaster, tiger is on a march. all leaves graham mcdowell with everything to do really.
Tank Girl

which he does.

that was ace, how i wish i could have seen it on the telly and not a jerky stream

sky murdoch bastards.
Butts

Increible finish, how that young lad Fowler kept his nerve I don't know. Molinari looked like he'd seen a ghost at the end. I can't think of a better format in sport. It's got everything.

You are quite right Forest.
Butts

It was quite emotional seeing McDowell interviewed just now. He was describing how he has practised all his life to get to that point on the 17th green, how he'd mentally rehearsed what he would do hundreds of times and yet, when he was in the middle of it, he couldn't remember a thing and that it was just pure instinct which got him through.
grunt

Those yanks, soooo uncouth.

fartcatcher

It is so nice to beat the yanks at anything, but particularly at a sport (well pastime) where they still believe they have a right to win and their barely-concealed arrogance occasionally shows through.

Bugger off and take your hideously-patterned jumpers, high fives. ineffective waterproofs and stepford wives with you.

a big thank you to the Welsh weather as well.

File with all England matches, any sport in fact where the uk are represented, the FA cup, the big cricket matches and loads more. You know, i'd even suffer adverts during the games (and only during the games) on the BBC to help pay for it all.
