This past weekend, we were all treated to some amazing golf as the United States won the Ryder Cup. The Ryder Cup is a golf tournament played every two years, and it pits the best golfers from the United States against the best golfers from Europe in a series of head-to-head matches.
I like to watch golf tournaments on TV while I nap on the couch, and one of the things in which I take the most joy as an amateur duffer is seeing a pro golfer hit the kind of craptastic shot I typically hit.
From the Super Bowl to March Madness, the Masters or the World Series and the World Cup, the sports world is cyclical. Seems we are always waiting eagerly on the edge of our seats (be them of the living room or arena variety) for the next big event.
A very interesting fact that was not lost on me is that the last three winners of the British Open, the land of the most unforgiving golf courses, have been over 40. Perhaps there's something to this wisdom and age thing.
