Kentucky Comes Up Big In Ryder Cup

Congrats to the team from the U.S. of A. as they finally won back the Ryder Cup.

Congrats to Valhalla Golf Club. The excitement and the tremendous conditions and an American victory did wonders for the stature of that course. That has to now be the most “playable” Jack Nicklaus design ever.

Being a Kentuckian, I’m especially proud of Kenny Perry and J.B. Holmes. And, since we used to live on Pensacola Beach, we’ve spent enough time around Milton, Florida to know a lot of fine people like Boo Weekley.

I was at the Wednesday practice round and have some ball markers that’ll be kept in their cases til I can go 1 1/2 hours down the road to Country Creek in Franklin, Kentucky and have Kenny sign ’em.

  • Even though the US win was quite considerable it was still an entertaining tournament. Cool pic by the way, I’m jealous!

  • Now the U.S. just needs to host a Ryder Cup in Hawaii! I would suggest the Robert Trent Jones, Jr.’s Prince Course at Princeville. Of course, we’d always welcome one in Colorado!

  • I’m with you GF !

    And if we can get them to invite golf bloggers to Hawaii, I’m ready to cover it !

  • I vote for Colorado. I think the last time many big name players came to Colorado was the 1960 U.S. Open.


  • Agreed- This year’s Ryder Cup was a gem. Hopefully Corey Pavin will be able to lead the U.S. to another victory next time. It will be tough accomplishing that in UK. If he can pull it off it may mean the U.S. is back in the thick of things.

    I too would like to see something like Ryder Cup in Colorado 🙂 However, I don’t understand the comment about top golfers not playing there since 1960. The International has recently been canceled, but it ran for years with most of the top players showing up. Even Tiger came a couple of times, as I recall. I know he came one year because I saw him crush a tee shot on no. 9.

    Thanks again for your comments from Medicus Driver
