The Scotsman has some of the best golf writing available on the web (I guess it ought to, coming from the home of golf). A recent article takes an in-depth look at Tom Lehman’s plan to get more out of the top American players than has been evident at recent Ryder Cup Matches. One of Lehman’s comments is especially interesting:
“We put a lot of emphasis on individual performance. You talk to any [American] player out there, he’ll say, ‘I want to be on the Ryder Cup team,’ and that’s a great goal, to be on the Ryder Cup team. But really, who wants to be on a losing Ryder Cup team? So I think the message I’m trying to lead through is this: I want to be on a team that goes to Ireland and wins.
