The ruthless message Tiger Woods sent to inspire the U.S team at Ryder Cup

Published

on

Tiger Woods may not have been on-site at Whistling Straits to witness the U.S. side’s record-breaking Ryder Cup victory, but his influence in the 2021 U.S. Ryder Cup success was more than evident.

Whether it be from the average age of the side being under 30-years-old and the majority if not all inspired to play the game from watching arguably the greatest golfer ever, to his role as unofficial vice-captain and being in regular touch with the U.S. side, Tiger’s influence was in full flow at the 43rd Ryder Cup.

According to reports, The 82-time winner on the PGA Tour inspired those history-breaking players by sending a ruthless message before Sunday’s singles urging the side to “Step on their necks”. message that was clearly understood loud and clear and then put into action as the U.S. ran out 19-9 winners in Wisconsin.

That message gives a look inside the ruthless mind of the 15-time major champion, who tweeted his congratulations to the U.S. side on Twitter following the event.

Before the tournament, Steve Stricker told media that Woods wouldn’t be attending the competition, but in his Sunday victory remarks stated: “Tiger has been a big part of this team. Shoutout to him.”

    Yes, lets make the greatest U.S. Ryder Cup team, performance maybe even the greatest cup team ever. Lets make it about Tiger, not too mention a text message so cliche and so transparently fake.

    Cool story bro.

    This is a huge reason why nobody likes journalists anymore.

    Tiger Woods Ryder Cup record, 13-21-3. Maybe if he stepped on the opponents neck when he was playing, he would have a better record.

    “This is what separates Tiger from the rest”. Never mind his Ryder Cup record.

      If you would never say it aloud publicly, leave it off of social media. One of the worst moments in our countries history should never be used as a punch line. Be better.

“The sports bet of the year” – Gambler wins nearly $1 million on Ryder Cup parlay

Published

on

According to Darren Rovell of the Action Network, an anonymous golfer placed an $8 parlay at FanDuel sports book that netted him nearly $1 million dollars by correctly predicting the outcome of all 12 of the Sunday singles matches at the Ryder Cup.

To place this wager into context, with 12 matches, and three different outcomes for each match, there were over 500,000 different possibilities that could have occurred. The bettor correctly predicted the outcome of all 12 matches, even down to the ties.

Rovell put it best, undeniably, the sports bet of the year.

Published

Fresh off his heroics at the Ryder Cup, Bryson DeChambeau channeled the energy he showed off at Whistling Straits to cruise into the next stage of the 2021 Professional Long Driver’s Association World Championship.

During first-round action, participants were split into five 16 man groups, with DeChambeau in group three. A player earned 200 points for winning a set, 100 points for finishing second and 50 points for finishing third.

Players were given two and a half minutes to hit six balls as far as they could in the grid area, and on his fourth drive of his fourth set Bryson unleashed a monstrous drive of 412-yards.

Bryson hit the third-longest drive of those in Group 3 on Tuesday, with Josh Cassaday hitting the longest drive of the group with a 417-yard bomb.

Needing approximately 275-300 points to advance, Bryson cruised through with a total of 800 points, just 100 points behind the winner of the group Scottie Pearman.

The tournament is now down to the last 64, and on Wednesday, the top eight from each group will advance to the Final 32, and then the top 8 from each group progresses on Thursday. The final then takes place on Friday. 

The event is not on cable television, but it can be watched through the PLDA’s YouTube Channel via live stream. The stream begins at 3:00 p.m. ET. , with Bryson’s group off at 3.45 p.m. You can also keep track of the leaderboard and scores here.

How much money Ryder Cup players receive may surprise you

Published

on

On Sunday afternoon at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin, the United States put the finishing touches on a 19-9 victory over the European team in the 43rd edition of the Ryder Cup.

There are many reasons that make the Ryder Cup an incredibly singular and unique event for players and fans alike. One of the most notable differences between the Ryder Cup and other PGA Tour events is that the Ryder Cup is an exhibition, so none of the competitors are entitled to any official compensation, even the winning team.

Through the participants do not receive any appearance money, according to Adam Schupak of Golfweek, the PGA of America does give the American team $200,000 each to donate to a charity. Half of the amount goes to youth-golf development programs, while the other half is up to the player’s discretion.

The European side does not receive any sum of money to donate, but they have traditionally received gifts from the captain.

The fact that the Ryder Cup is the one event of the year where the best golfers in the world aren’t competing for prize money, and yet players still feel so strongly about it, speaks to the power and beauty of the experience. We’re already excited for Rome.
