2012 Ryder CUp

2012 Ryder Cup

The stage is set for the 2012 Ryder cup at Medinah Country Club in Medinah Illinois right outside of Chicago.  This is my favorite event that takes place in the golf world.  A close second is of course the Masters.  Going to a Ryder Cup is defiantly on my bucket list- just waiting to check that one off.


This year is going to be epic there are a lot of very talented young players on both teams.  Some of my favorite on both sides are Keegan Braldey (young and playing great at this moment) Dustin Johnson (of course our local Myrtle Beach boy and Coastal Carolina graduate)  Matt Kucher (always in contention and one of my favorites)  On the ‘other’ side: Rory McIlroy (probably my favorite player out on tour right now, and currently playing his butt off with two late season wins) and Lee Westwood ( we should hate him, but he’s such a great competitor and very exciting to watch)

Wardrobe: Always one of my favorite parts of the Ryder Cup- this year NIKE is a major sponsor for team USA- I have seen a sneak peak of their outfits and they are AWESOME! The cool thing also is the wives are dressed to the max also- looking great and matching their men perfectly!  The opening ceremonies begin on Wednesday night along with their kick off Gala- a fun red carpet event!  Can’t wait to see the pictures!


Here is a lineup of both teams:

Team USA:

Keegan Bradley
Jim Furyk

Phil Mickelson

I predict a US win, but not a blowout- It will come down to the singles matches Sunday like always!
