Honestly...... it's just golf.
I must say, though. The players and fans at this competition can almost put some World Cup crowds to shame (pardon the slight exaggeration there).
Just happened to catch the end of this tournament and was sort of shocked to see the European players throwing themselves into the adoring crowd, with champagne being sprayed everywhere.
I guess you have to be a golfer to appreciate that.
Supposedly the U.S. hasn't won a Ryder Cup in Europe for the last 25 years or something like that.
