Ryder Cup team of newbies

The European team has whooped ass in the last few Ryder Cups but things could change next year.

Captain Nick Faldo is currently facing the prospect of a 12-man team including seven first-timers. Based on World and European points rankings, the only recognisable Ryder names in the pack are Lee Westwood and Sergio Garcia.

Don’t believe us? Well, have you heard of Gregory Bourdy? Or Steve Webster? No disrespect to these or any of the other newbies. But we’ve never heard of them.

Plus – why do Europeans have such boring names compared to US golfers? Where are our Fuzzy Zoellers, Curtis Stranges, Tigers and Rocco Mediates??
