America’s victory in the Whistling Straits Ryder Cup was devastating and even insulting in the result (19-9) for a European team that it arrived without the favorite vitola, but much more was expected from those chosen by Padraig Harrington.
Europe, which suffered the worst defeat since Continental Europe, in 1979, only showed hope in the first two days of the game. in pairs with the resolving game of the two Spaniards, andl from Castellón Sergio García, the great leader in this competition and world number one, Jon Rahm
Both were the only ones who pulled the European team in the first two days where the game was in pairs. Disappointing performances from players who were expected a lot like Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood or Ian Poulter. Players with experience in the Ryder but who did not perform in their pairs game.
Europe suffered a severe correction in Wisconsin, with a highly motivated US team to break European hegemony. in this biennial competition – seven wins in the last nine editions – although now Europe’s task is to turn it around in the next edition.
Considering what happened in this 43rd Ryder, the only thing that seems clear right now is that Jon Rahm and Sergio García, if nothing extraordinary happens, they must settle for the spearhead of the team in Marco Simone (Rome) where the next edition will be held.
The Castellón, in his tenth participation, has responded again. Borriol’s is transformed into the tournament, whatever his moment of form on the PGA Tour, and he has to be back in the next edition for his leadership and pedigree, as the player who has won the most points in history.
Rahm, one of the references
For its part, Jon Rahm, in his second appearance, has already shown that together with Sergio they form an almost indestructible couple, who understand each other well and it seems that there is very good vibes between both players, something basic for success.
We will see who will be the captain in the 2023 edition on Italian soil, but what seems clear is that both players must have a specific weight and even take absolute leadership in the field, that nobody has been able to contribute outside of the Spanish in this year’s team.
