Well, it’s all over, and ‘thrashed’ and ‘destroyed’ spring to mind. Not all my predictions were spot on, but to my amazement we beat them by even a bigger margin than my original guess.
C Montgomerie vs D Toms – Correct.
S Garcia vs S Cink – Wrong, USA won.
P Casey vs J Furyk – Wrong, Europe won.
R Karlsson vs T Woods – Wrong, USA won.
L Donald vs C Campbell – Wrong, Europe won.
P McGinley vs JJ Henry – Wrong, match halved.
D Clarke vs Z Johnson – Wrong, Europe won.
H Stenson vs V Taylor – Wrong, Europe won.
D Howell vs B Wetterich – Correct.
JM Olazabel vs P Mickelson – Wrong, Europe won.
L Westwood vs C DiMarco – Wrong, Europe won.
P Harrington vs S Verplank – Wrong, USA won.
2 correct, 10 wrong. Impressive I must admit. The players I expected to perform for the USA (Furyk, Mickelson, DiMarco, Johnson) all lost their matches. The players I predicted to perform for Europe (Garcia, McGinley, Harrington) didn’t. The matches I predicted halves in weren’t halved. In fact, the only two got correct were Monty and Howell, and to be honest, I’m glad, as it meant we won by a margin 4 greater than even my optimistic prediction suggested.
Roll on Louisville, Kentucky.
