Not long to go before, for me, one of the great sporting contests takes place. Any other forum members interested? A treat awaits in September with the Rugby World Cup also taking centre stage. What do other members think about the decision by Europe that no LIV players can be selected? For my 4 penneth I think its pretty irrelevant because none of the usual suspects - Westwood, Poulter or Garcia have any real form whatsoever.

European golf is in a bit of a fallow period right now. Maybe half a dozen players capable of holding their own against a strong American side.

Could be a whooping again tbh.

Gentlemen - for shame!!!!! Rory, Rahm, Fleetwood, Hovland, Fitzpatrick, Rose should form the basis of a decent team. Combined with passionate Italian support we will give the buggers a run for their money!!!!

You named the half dozen!

Not sure Rose is going to be a value add, and it depends which Rahm turns up.

You spotted my weakness there Wil - for sure once we get down past our top 5 guys they Americans have 4/5 for every one of our boys in the top 50. Rose is a proven performer on the big occasion & Rahm needs to find his leadership role within the team - the guy who turned up at the Masters will do me. 

I could add Tyrell Hatton to my list who, with his temperament, will guarantee some sparks flying. I rely on the fact that most European victories have come against the odds.

Good signs for the European team over the weekend with Hovland showing he is the best player in the World at the moment at the Tour Championship finale. Also strong showings from Rory, Fleetwood, Rahm, Fitzpatrick & Hatton.

Well the teams are decided. Young Aberg at 23 & a pro since June will get the headlines. What a rise. Clearly he is some player winning the award for the best college golfer on the American circuit but this is something else. 

When he hits his first tee shot his knees will be shaking - could we be seeing the next big thing. i will be watching.

I admire your positive mindset GPR.

I’m afraid it’s going to be a strong defeat ( with hopefully one or two youngsters showing they have got what it takes).

Hope I’m wrong obviously- with many American friends a whooping will ‘ feed that beast’.

I think the core of the European team are in form and can carry us to victory this time and if Luke takes a day to Sicily I'm sure there are some 28 handicappers who can make the Yanks an offer they can't refuse LOL

Good news that all 12 members of the Ryder Cup team made the cut at Wentworth. Slightly worrying is the form of Rory, our talisman, who is having trouble off the tee. Get a good week of practice in Rory lad & sort it out.

Well it hasn't taken long for Ludwig Aberg to show his colours. Leading after 3 rounds on 16 under at Wentworth. I watched some of his holes yesterday & I have to say that he appears to have everything. He is longer off the tee that Rory which is no mean feat & his pace of play is refreshingly swift & accompanied by a very calm temperament.

If our American friends were wondering who he was they are about to find out.

Wentworth isn't the widest course I have played, and Rory seemed to turn it around on the last 2 days. 
The format favours good putters and that is often unpredictable in 2 man teams.

There is no hiding in the singles though, but I give Europe a fair "putter's" chance as opposed to puncher's chance, as Poulter and Garcia are no longer around.

Yes 12 under over the final two rounds against 1 under the first two. Grant Fox's son wins with a great final round. Aberg going into the final round at 16 under and a two shot lead learned a very big lesson about pressure golf slipping out of contention. His prodigious talent has been talked up for a few weeks so time to find out about his temperament - my money is on him bouncing back in Rome but hey I am an eternal optimist. Ouch
