KOHLER - The last time the USA Ryder Cup team was in such control of a tournament, it was 1979 and The Knack’s “My Sharona” was the No. 1 hit in the country and USA team captain Billy Casper was treated to a 17-11 win at The Greenbrier in West Virginia. America’s Larry Nelson went 5-0 just as ESPN launched as a small cable network in Bristol, Connecticut.
This Sunday morning, the United States leads Europe 11-5 as the singles portion of the 43rd Ryder Cup will soon begin. Twelve matches will commence and the USA will begin with a -5000 wagering advantage.
Tee Times range from 12:04pm to 2:05pm (EDT).
No team has ever come back to win from a six point Sunday morning deficit. But, 12 points are on the line today.
