What parameters? With modern day staging and attendance? Would club realistically have to agree to hold it?
I guess any parameters.
Earlier this week we were taking about no fans Ryder Cup
In a dream scenario, my lineup would look a lot like the Walker Cup. Same as most peoples lists I’d assume.
IF money were not an issue, but still keeping up with size of modern Ryder Cups? Probably some of the older continental courses like Falkenstein, Morfontaine and Kennemer. In the UK definitely one in London - Sunningdale would work. Maybe a Pennard in Wales or Ballybunnion in Ireland. Anyplace the Open isn’t likely to go.
In the US - Camargo, Chicago and Shoal Creek would all work size wise. But I doubt any of those places would put up with the aggravation.
No fans would change everything. You could have it just about anywhere without fans. Only top places I can think of where you still couldn’t play it even without fans would be Sand Hills or maybe Fishers
I know likelihood is not even in the realm of possibility but I think 1 time at Augusta would be really cool!
Me seeing the subject of the new NLU POD today
2021 Ryder Cup?..
I am bummed but at the same time understand and if I’m finding the glass half full…more time for speculation???
The thing that is most interesting will be if the rankings “reset” or if it will be like 2002 where they kept the same roster from 2001…
Understanding that they had already changed the criteria for this year in US selection*
If they are already at 6 captain’s picks, wouldn’t it make sense to lock in the top 6 as of this year, but allow the captain’s picks to wait till next year?
2021 Merge Ryder and President’s Cup - split Presidents cup into Asia and Rest of World - make it a 4 team set up with only 8 players
Disclaimer: for ease of creation this was solely created by OWGR a terrible choice for this format but it made my initial analysis easier
That would be EPIC and mayhem hahaha I love it
The Residents Cup?!
Needs more Kiradech
Who is going to host the COVID Cup? I feel like you have to change the location under the circumstances. (For sake of discussion at least)
8 captain’s pick (assuming we’re at whistling straits? or really any bomber’s paradise)
USA: Justin Thomas, Webb Simpson, Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Tony Finau, Bryson DeChambeau, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele
Europe: Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood, Viktor Hovland, Thomas Pieters, Justin Rose, Tyrrell Hatton, Martin Kaymer
Asia: Hideki Matsuyama, Sungjae Im, Byeong-hun An, Jazz Janewattananond, Gavin Green,
Haotong Li, Hosung Choi, Kiradech Aphibarnrat
World: Adam Scott, Marc Leishman, Louis Oosthuizen, Abraham Ancer, Corey Conners, Erik Van Rooyen, Joaquin Niemann, Jason Day
I’m opening up every single golf course in the world to this fantasy.
And I can only come to the conclusion that an event of such nature could only be competed at one of two places.
Either St. Andrews or Pinehurst No. 2.
USA: JT, DJ, Brooks, Webb Simpson, Xander, Cantlay, Morikawa, Bryson.
Europe: McIlroy, Rose, Fleetwood, Hovland, Hatton, Rahm, Fitzpatrick, Sergio.
Asia: Hideki, Ben An, Kiradech, Hung Jae, Jazzy, Haotong, Gavin Green, CT Pan.
World: Scott, Leishman, Ancer, Van Rooyen, Hadwin, Conners, Niemann, Day.
The lack of any formatting frustrates me but your picks are good so carry on.
