It was European Holiday in Paris this weekend as Team Europe steamrolled the USA.
Things were not good. Not good at all.
Day 1 started off okay and it really looked like the US might end their thousand year drought on the Continent but alas Day 2 happened and though there was hope there really was no shot that the US was ever going to win this thing.
Really only Justin Thomas played consistently well, scoring 3 of the 10.5 USA points.
Big names like Tiger and Phil laid goose eggs while World #1 Dustin Johnson managed only 1 point out of 5 matches.
Just total domination by Team Europe. Role player guys like Molinari and Rahm stepped up big when needed. Even the guys who struggled like Rory and Paul Casey managed to get something on the board for the team.
Overall very disappointing for the boys in Red White and Blue.
But even in defeat we here at Hi-Top can still find a silver lining. Our love for Tommy “FLEETS” Fleetwood Mac can not be contained by mere geographic whims and arbitrary national borders. FLEETS is the beating heart of the golf wing of Hi-Top Nation so here’s to you Tommy, have a pint on us:
FYI – This now the official Hi-Top Nation National Anthem
