    The Fisher v Overton match could be the decider. If Fisher can get a half then that could be it.

    Our only chance is to flip one of those Euro flags to USA.

    Going to have to be Mahan and it's not going to be easy.

    I've been looking for my ball everywhere...
    Here it is in the scrub.
    **lines her club up to the ball, sights the green, thinks she can get the ball close to the flag from here, sights the green, thinks she can get the ball close to the flag from here, lines the club and ball up, she thinks she can get the ball close to the flag from here, lines it up and swings**

    Fuck europe

    :P

    Sammi: Wanna just break up?

  • Congrats to Europe for a hard-fought and well-earned win. That was exciting down the stretch and like polaris said, Graeme was just a little more mentally tough than Hunter. Cheers to the US for never giving up and fighting till the end, but hats off to Europe and Monty.

    I was in the Outer Banks of North Carolina this past weekend for a wedding and had the opportunity to play at The Currituck Club in Corolla. Very nice course but a bit pricey. We got on for $100 (plus $50 for rental clubs) which is a discount from the normal rate. I would recommend it if you're in the area and don't mind spending the money. I typically don't spend that kind of cash on golf but it was for a special occasion and the groom really wanted to play. I'm glad I did.
    I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me.

    My timing sucks. I just came back from a meeting and it's all over.

    Here's to the next one, I hope it's as tight as this again.

    I love the seclusion of Corolla NC, even though I miss the wild horses that once roamed the area. Yes in Corolla they have the best putt putt course I've ever played. You play on natural grass all 18 holes. The ocean there is almost as nice as it is here in the Palm Beaches FL.

    Peace

    ok ... so, my buddies and i have been going to myrtle beach in february for the last 13 years (with two trips to florida in there including last year) ... can anyone suggest another destination that will have decent weather and as good of a value as myrtle is?

    we typically play 4 rds and stay 4 nights and can get greens/carts/accommodations (condo villas) and breakfast buffet for like $375 US pp and we typically play premium courses - not necessarily pebble beach kind but just below it ...

    We stayed on the remote north end of Corolla. We actually had to drive about 2 miles on the beach to get to the house where we stayed. The access was by 4 wheel drive only. We saw a few wild horses around the house which was pretty cool. I'd never been there before but I would definitely recommend the Corolla area if you are looking for privacy and seclusion.
    I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me.

    The Pinehurst area of NC has a ton of good golf vacation deals. Also, Naples, Florida is an excellent golf destination but the prices are a bit high if you go in February. If you wait until Summer you can get some excellent deals.

    No problem. Below I've included a link to the company we've used in the past to book our Pinehurst vacations. You can upgrade to some really nice courses through them. It's best to call them and let them know exactly what you're looking for so they can get you the best recommendations. From their list of courses, I'd recommend The Pit and The Carolina. Mid Pines and Pine Needles are supposed to be very good but I haven't played them.

    Understandable. It can be a bit cool in February. Myrtle Beach may be your best bet for weather/pricing during that time of year.

    Edit: what's up Adam? Hope things are well down South.

    Things are good. The season just ended and I'm already ready for spring training to start. Haven't been around as much since we moved. I'm on my iPhone all the time but unfortunately they won't fix the boards so we can use them through Safari. :evil:

    What's crackin, normy? I'm still reeling over the Ryder Cup. You and I could have a better job of managing that team. Corey sucks ass. Sorry, I need to vent my frustration on the golf thread.

    corey and every future captain needs to learn motivation from crenshaw...it doesn't seem like the players were motivated by pavin...when you look at the euros, colin had them come together as a team

    No doubt. And I loved the rotation that Azinger employed in 08. That seemed to put the Euros on their heels.

    Not sure if you guys saw this, but I grabbed it off barstool sports boston. It's a video of the Euro Ryder Cup team "raging" after their big win Monday. You can see Ian Poulter, Rory and Luke Donald in the vid. I still cant believe we lost to such a bunch of sissies. Talented beyond comprehension, but sissies nonetheless.

    Here's another one of the Euro team singing "We Are the Champions". Lee Westwood looks wrecked.
