One of the biggest reasons we've had such success is the unity in the team and he just isn't that sort of guy.

I'd love to see big Darren Clarke given a go as captain

Did anyone score a goal in one? They are worth more goals aren't they?

I never realised croquet was so popular but they get millions in prize money. Amazing.

Anyone seen Mickelson's press conference?! Torn into Tom Watson. Should be an interesting evening at the dinner.

Yeah just saw some of it. Let rip didn't he? Going on about Paul Azinger and ripping into Watson. IMO the Paul Azinger effect is overstated as Faldo was completely useless as a captain.

I feel sorry for Watson as he's a top man and was the last Us captain to win on European oil in 1993. There seems to be a lot of back stabbers in that US team.

That's part of their problem, they can't get the togetherness that the Europeans have when some of them don't get on or don't like how things are done. He's pissed off he wasn't played yesterday too.

Generational gap between those guys and Watson, too. His status in the game must make it difficult to have much of a bond, and he also made some terrible decisions with Mickelson & Bradley and Spieth & Reed which clearly pissed them all off. Watson has been their Faldo.

There is a huge wealth of experience in terms in Europes captains and vice-captains. Not only in terms of playing but actually being vice captains or previous captains

Torrance has been a vice captain in 2010, 2012 & 2014
Olazabal captain in 2012, vice captain 2014
McGinley vice captain 2010 & 2012, captain 2014
Jimenez has been vice captain in 2012 & 2014

You also have Clarke, Bjorn & now Harrington who have been vice captains

There also seems to be no egos, a captain will happily be a vice captain next time around for the benefit of the team

The Europeans also are more of a team, there seems to be no egos getting in the way. Yeah there are some brilliant players on the European team but they are immersed in the team ethos. The USA just like finger pointing, you had Mickelson leaking stuff to the press about not playing Saturday then his press conference afterwards. The European team can leave people out and yet still maintain their togetherness. I heard something yesterday that McGinlay brought in additional vice captains this time round because he didnt want players not playing on Friday or Saturday to be left out on their own. So the vice captains spent time with them and made them feel part of the experience / day eventhough they werent playing
