The Ryder Cup: The most sensational day's sport I have ever seen.

Sunday's Ryder Cup was the most sensational day's sport I have ever seen. Who would have thought that José María Olazábal's team could recover from a 10-6 deficit to win the trophy against the United States by 14½ points to 13½. It seemed to me that the US team could not deal with the expectation of the very large partisan crowd. This was especially true of Tiger Woods who seemed to be having a mental breakdown. The US captain realised this and put him last in the final days pairings expecting his result not to matter. However, the early results meant that it did matter and he could not cope with the pressure.
