Whistling Straits Interlude 1: Can we predict the 2021 winner?
Not a canon episode. The mixer and the mic made their way to Wisconsin, so let's engage in a thought exercise: Can we use what we know about Ryder Cup history to predict the winner?

Very enjoyable and knowledgeable
A terrific trip down the rabbit hole into the history of the Ryder Cup. Can’t wait for the book to come out!
Good but contains mistakes
This was an excellent listen but maybe a little oversold. If you’re writing (and talking) about golf history then be sure you know your facts, given this podcast seems to be aimed at a premium golf audience. Errors irk such an audience. For example, Tom Watson beat Jack Nicklaus at Turnberry in 1977, not St Andrews as stated. Sandy Lyle was the first Briton to win The Masters (1988), not Nick Faldo (1989). And there’s a few more. But it’s a good formula and insightful otherwise.
Very Well Done
Awesome. Please do more
