YGT Rory’s View…
So…I’m not making an attempt to brag right here. However I’ve been to The Masters 3 instances. I’ve spent the final 3 and a bit years (my first Masters was in 2015 when Jordan Spieth ran riot) waxing lyrical about it to my family and friends who’ve a standard curiosity in golf. And I’ve not been exaggerating in saying that Augusta provides the perfect reside viewing expertise golf has to supply.
Nevertheless, regardless of how particular it’s strolling the world’s most well-known golf course, seeing Tiger make eagle, birdie, eagle within the three holes I adopted him for, watching Nicklaus, Watson and Participant enjoying the Par 3 Match (the recollections are many ; it was all trumped in a single EPIC day at Le Golf Nationwide on Sunday.
You see extra golf in “first individual” at The Masters and that’s a part of what makes it such a particular match to attend. However that’s the place it ends. The Ryder Cup wins in each different division.
It’s most likely straightforward for me to say this whereas nonetheless driving excessive on a wave of Group Europe euphoria, in addition to some pretty sturdy ache killers and a good bit of water this morning, but it surely was simply superior…I feel even when America’s transient trace of a Sunday comeback really performed out the way in which they wished it to, I’d nonetheless have beloved the expertise. The ambiance is one thing I want I might bottle up to be used once I want an adrenaline hit.
From arriving on the 1st Tee Grandstand 3 hours earlier than the first match was resulting from tee off, to being about 15 toes from Phil Mickelson’s splash ball that handed the cup again to Europe, my day at The Ryder Cup was up to now forward of what I anticipated it to be when it comes to leisure, emotion and expertise, it was tantamount to watching Usain Bolt setting his first 100m world report, easing off after 60 meters, wanting again at his closest competitor (The Masters) and beating his chest as he strolled to victory.
It was THAT good.
I might think about the truth that this was a “residence” Ryder Cup made it all of the extra particular…however I’d guess even the American followers – as soon as the heartache of one more beating from the “lesser” crew on paper has subsided – had an superior week in Paris. I’ll be eating out on this one for some time and might’t wait to be that annoying prat at my residence golf membership, shouting “I WAS THERE” with a smug grin on my face each time somebody mentions Paris 2018.
