The US is hoping a 2-0 start can make up for Tiger's inevitable 6 and 5 loss.

Ignorance is bliss. Hate to bust your bubble but Tiger Woods will have a VERY good weekend in Wales.

Shanks--are you referring to Tiger's weekend on the course?

I like the first 3 pairings. Just wish that Furyk was going out with Bubba rather than untried rookie Overton. But hope we sweep 4-0. GO USA!!

It does not help that a man who now seems to be improvising as he goes along captains this U.S. team. Pavin could not explain why he thought the No. 8 match was so important location for Woods, as he could not explain why his players kept leaving putts short all day while the Europeans meant that if they reach'm in the hole.
