USA Takes Back the Ryder Cup!

Ok, so it's a little late for my blog: Lots going on earlier this week. But, I was so stoked Sunday afternoon to watch the final matches of the Ryder Cup at Valhalla. When I arrived home, Andrew Kim had already defeated Sergio Garcia and the U.S. was up in most of the matches. Some of the major highlights of Sunday were Hunter Mahan's putt on 17 to insure at least a half point, J.B. Holmes sticking it right up on the pin on 17, and of course Boo Weekley disposing of his opponent and giving Lee Westwood some "shut-up juice" in the process.

If you aren't a big fan of golf, this event takes place every 2 years between the best golfers from the U.S. and the best golfers from Eur. ope. The Red, White, and Blue won without the world #1 in Tiger Woods. This was the first time the U.S. had won the event since 1999, just one month before Payne Stewart died. It was a great historic moment that I was pumped to watch.

Congrats to the good ol' USA!
