After a Ryder Cup victory last season and this most recent President’s Cup, it is starting to be talked about. This USA team is GOOD. This may be one of the best teams in USA history.
The thing about this team is they are deep, not just top heavy.
With teams in the past, they have had the talent at the top to get them close to beating teams, but never the depth.
If you look at the 12 men they put out at Liberty National, it is hard to think they will lose anytime soon.
You have the two studs in Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed who are your workhorses. Although Reed isn’t always there on Sunday’s during PGA events it seems like he ramps it up when he is in red, white and blue.
After that you have a minor downgrade, if any, to Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas who compliment each other like peanut butter and jelly.
After that you have a slew of solid golfers who could all go out and win a PGA event on any given week.
We saw this during the President’s Cup where it seemed like the USA could roll out their “weakest” foursome against the International’s top dogs and still go 17-18 holes with them. Daniel Berger clinched the win for the USA, and he was playing a tough competitor in Si Woo Kim but he still beat him 2&1.
These guys, with the exception of Phil Mickelson and Charley Hoffman are young too.
They have A LOT of Ryder Cups and President’s Cup left under their belts.
With all this being said, the rest of the world isn’t that bad, which makes this even more impressive.
You have a young Si Woo Kim fresh off a Players Championship win, Jason Day who is dominate when healthy, a veteran Adam Scott and a lot of young studs capable of playing great golf.
So for the USA to be spanking them this bad, is very very impressive.
