    Man, that warms the cockles on a cold October morning. I think the Seppos even top the English for misguided sporting hubris.

    Woods, of course, halved with Moulinari to give him a half from a possible 4. Played Eldrick.

    To be fair to Woods, he had the match won until it became obvious that Europe had retained the trophy.

    Then simply walked up and whacked the last few shots to get it over with asap and basically gifted a half to Molinari

    Amazing days play with some brilliant play and monumental chokes from the spetics

    Woods missed a 2 footer to win. Say what you want it was ****ing funny. Meant that Europe won outright rather than simply retaining by drawing too. It was brilliant.

    That was simply the greatest night of sport I have ever had the privilege to witness. Loved the fightback, never expected to win it but was proud how they gave it a go. To eventually get over the line and see a couple of games turn from 1 down after 16 to wins was amazing. Can't wait till Gleneagles when the crap tee shots by the Yanks WILL get punished.

    And he shouldn't have taken such a lax attitude. The USA could have still "halved" the tournament rather than losing it and wouldn't have shared in the record for the biggest choke. In fact, probably setting a new record as they've done it at home. Couldn't believe Woods didn't make Molinari take the putt.

    Only watched the last day but it was generally the Europeans that were spraying it everywhere

    They won by virtue of holing miracle chips/putts not straight tee shots

    A mate of mine who I used to play golf with got his spot on the PGA Tour next year after many years of slogging it out on the Web.com Tour. Finished 15th this year to automatically qualify for the step up. He's worked his arse off and is a top bloke, would love to see him go well next year.

    Good to see Scott win the Oz Masters but sad to see how far the tourney has fallen

    Used to attract a very high quality field (hint to organisers: dont schedule it on the same weekend as 2 European Tour events, you dumb ****s) and got great TV ratings

    This event only had a few world class players and they literally couldnt give the coverage away for free to the commercial channels

    IMG run the Masters, while one of their main competitors is used by the main Australian golfing body to run every other tournament; so the Masters in the last two years has been treated as the poor cousin.

    The mate I mentioned above came tied for 7th at the Aussie Open this week. His name's Scott Gardiner, he's been in a few of the papers the last couple of weeks after qualifying for the PGA Tour. As I said above, lovely bloke and hope he goes well in the US.
