Let's hope Arnold Palmer's passing is handled with dignity, and doesn't become a sideshow to the RC.

A minute's silence before the first tee shot on Friday, and players wearing black ribbons/armbands would be a fitting tribute imo.

I have a horrible feeling broadcasters will milk it though, and we'll be seeing old footage of AP at every opportunity.

You can bet LoveIII will use it as motivation, like Europe did with Seve. "We're doing it for Arnie" will be the battlecry this week.

Ryan Moore added as Davis Love III's final Captain's Pick. Love was scheduled to make the announcement during halftime of the Sunday Night Football match up between the Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys. In light of the news regarding the passing of Arnold Palmer, the decision was made to not make the announcement then, but rather in a press release that Moore's 11th-hour charge was enough to earn a spot on a USA squad hoping to win its first Ryder Cup since 2008 and just its third since 1999.
Report Catch Me ifyoucan September 26, 2016 1:51 PM BST
Moore joins Brooks Koepka as the only two rookies on the 2016 Ryder Cup USA team. The European team, meanwhile, will carry six rookies.
A quarterfinalist this year at the WGC-Dell Match Play, Moore's amateur match-play record is outstanding. Along with winning the 2002 U.S. Amateur Public Links, Moore also captured the NCAA Individual Championship, the U.S. Amateur Public Links, and the U.S. Amateur in 2004.

“Hey, Danny, want a jelly donut or would you rather some cookie dough?”

“I fill my fat, jelly face with hot dogs. Don’t let it bother you.”

Willett was cheered along the way, too. After he made birdie at the ninth, he got a huge cheer from fans. But as the cheer was subsiding, a fan yelled, “But we still hate you Danny!”

Willett’s parents were inside the ropes following him.

'We don't need the MIRACLE AT MEDINAH'.....Crikey, what do we need ? Major Meltdown in Minnesota

Hazeltine is even better qualified historically to host this Ryder Cup than Medinah was four years ago. Hazeltine didn’t even open until 1962, roughly 40 years after Medinah, but it has already hosted two U.S. Opens (1970, 1991), two U.S. Women’s Opens (1966, 1977), two PGA Championships (2002, 2009), the U.S. Senior Open (1983) and the U.S. Amateur (2006). The Ryder Cup is all that’s missing from the club’s resume, and that will soon be corrected. Only one club has hosted all those big events plus the Ryder Cup. That would be North Carolina’s Pinehurst No. 2, which opened in 1907 – 55 years before Hazeltine.

Thomas Bjorn has confirmed a switch to the session format - with morning 4 x Fourballs and afternoon 4 x Foursomes on both Fri/Sat.

Bjorn hoping for leads going into both afternoons as America are stronger in foursomes. Americans smashed us 4-0 in first session of last Ryder Cup (Foursomes) and we never had a chance after that. Bjorn making right call playing fourballs first. America will have some deadly foursomes pairings. JT/Fowler, Spieth/Reed, DJ/Kuch.


While the 42nd Ryder Cup kicks off on Friday September 28th, the rivalry will be begin on Tuesday with the Ryder Cup Celebrity Match as part of a week-long schedule of events in Paris. EIGHT celebrities from Europe and USA compete in a nine-hole scramble at Le Golf National. This year the celebrity teams will comprise of a mix of stars from the world of film, sport and beyond. Jamie Dornan and Kelly Slater being the first two to be confirmed for Europe and USA respectively.

Dornan, an actor from Northern Ireland, will make his Celebrity Match debut in Paris. The 35 year old, who stars in the "50 Shades of Grey" franchise, is a keen golfer and plays off of a handicap of ten. He was also born in Holywood, Northern Ireland – the town where Rory McIlroy grew up. 
Kelly Slater is an American professional surfer. He has been crowned World Surf League Champion a record 11 times, including five consecutive titles in 1994–98. He is the youngest (at age 20) and the oldest (at age 39) to win the title. Slater represented USA in the 2016 Ryder Cup Celebrity Match in Hazeltine and is often spotted at golf events or pro-ams, playing off a handicap of three.

Next up for Team Europe is Luis Figo. Along with four La Liga winners medals, four Serie A winner medals, a FIFA World Player of the Year award and a Ballon d'Or, the Portuguese footballer is also an avid golfer and golf fan. The 45 year old represented Sporting CP, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Internazionale from 1989 to 2009 and was capped by Portugal more than 125 years, scoring 32 goals. He won the 2000 Ballon d'Or and the 2001 FIFA World Player of the Year titles and was once the most expensive footballer in the world, when he moved from Barcelona to Real Madrid for a fee of €62 million. Figo plays to a handicap of around 11 and has played in the European Tour's Dunhill Links Championship at St Andrews in three of the last four years, partnering Martin Kaymer, Matt Fitzpatrick and Ricardo Gouveia.
The second player announced on the US side is former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. After earning a bachelor’s degree from the University of Denver a master’s degree from Notre Dame, Rice went on to work under President Carter before becoming the second African American Secretary of State under the Bush administration. Following her time in office, Rice now teaches at Stanford University Graduate School of Business and likes to golf in her free time. In 2012 she became one of the first two female members of Augusta National Golf Club and continues to play regularly, off a handicap of 14.
The 2018 Celebrity Match will take place at Le Golf National on Tuesday from 2:00 to 5:45pm CEST.

Sunday’s deadline to qualify for the US Ryder Cup team came and went without any changes, which was not a huge surprise considering that Nos. 9 and 10 on the point list, Bryson DeChambeau and Phil Mickelson, respectively, both missed the cut at the PGA Championship.

There was, however, a shakeup on the European side, with Ian Poulter climbing from 12th on the world points list to eighth, bumping Paul Casey out of the automatic qualifiers; although Casey has until Sept. 2 to move back into the top 8 and qualify for the team.

THE US side.....
The top 8 players on the point list are now locked in to play the matches, led by PGA winner Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Patrick Reed, Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler & Webb Simpson.

Furyk names 3 Captains picks on 3rd Sept and one further pick on 9th Sept..... So WOODS (cert) PHIL, KUCHAR.....& maybe KISNER or DeCHAMBEAU / SCHAUFFELE ???

Bjorn picks his 4 on 5th Sept (after the 8 qualify thru the TOP EURO (2nd Sept) and OWGR (3rd Sept) Points sysytem).

Olesen's 4th at the Nordea (final-round 67 with 3 birdies in his last 7 holes) was too little too late but he moves past Paul Casey and Ian Poulter in a tight race for the fourth and final Ryder Cup spot via the World Points list this week. He's not far behind Fleetwood (4th) in the European Points list either. The top four players from both lists on Sept. 2 will qualify.
Poulter and Casey will both have a chance to move back in front next week at The Northern Trust, while the final qualifying week will include the PGA Tour event at TPC Boston and Olesen headlining the field in his homeland at the Made in Denmark.
Even if Olesen fails to qualify automatically for Paris, he's a possible pick from his countryman, Bjorn. In addition to the players who fail to qualify from the Olesen-Poulter-Casey trio, other candidates for Bjorn's quartet of picks will likely include Major Champs Sergio and Stenson.
