The first task force has met about how to build a winning Ryder Cup program

I just have to say I don't see where a task force is going to 'fix' the problem.   I mean I understand that Ryder Cup preparation is more than just sending guys out to play golf.  And Ok, having a 'team comradery' and such may make the guys come together, but at the end of the day, you win by the players going out and hitting golf shots and making putts.  So other than thinking through how to do the pairings, which even then, doesn't matter unless players hit shots, I just don't see where this task force is going to change the end result.  My ability to hit a shot isn't baed on who I hung out with last night.  At that level of golf, those guys should be able to put their differences aside when they reach the first tee. Play golf!

It's about Match Play

I think the big problem is that most of today's Tour Pro ONLY play Stroke play all year and only play Match play once or twice a year at most. And playing Match play format at the Ryder Cup is NOT where they should be getting a feel for this format. I'd like to see the US team meet up before the match a few times and play Match play format of golf. Maybe this would give them an edge and help them win. MAYBE, rather than picking a team based of Stroke Play results, they should have the top candidates play some Match Play events to decide who represents the USA and who stays home.

Professional golfers all have

Professional golfers all have their own way of preparing for each tournament, and finding the right balance between time on the range, practice rounds and relaxation is crucial to performance week in, week out.But preparing for a Ryder Cup? That's an entirely different prospect. It's not just a case of analysing the course, working on the swing and setting out a strategic game-plan for the week ahead.The Ryder Cup brings a seemingly endless list of other factors to take into account, not just for the players but also the team captains and backroom staff.
