The PGA Tour heads to Jackson, MS this week as the golf world ponders whether the US Ryder Cup team will ever lose again. Seriously, the US team has always seemingly had a bright future concerning the Ryder Cup, but it's hard to find a time in history when their prospects look better than they do know. Most of the talent on the US team has at least a solid decade before you can even consider a slowdown, while the heart of the European team is knocking on the door of the Champions Tour. The Euro's will rebound at some point, but the cupboard looks rather bare right now and there's no reason to think the US team will take a step back anytime soon. The real test of course comes in two years when the US team will try to do something that hasn't been done for a while, win on foreign soil. Now, back to reality and the fall portion of the PGA Tour season. Whereas this portion of the season used to be filled with weak events, now those weaker events are merely sprinkled in. Unfortunately, we've got a weaker event this week as not many big names are in the field, which isn't a huge surprise the week following the Ryder Cup. We do however have a lot of course history, so perhaps we can pick a winner this week.
