SEPTEMBER 2018

After the heroics & histrionics at Hazeltine, these two (& the fans)
are hoping it can happen one more time

Davis Love has all sorts of mementos from the 2016 Ryder Cup scattered around his house. There are two, though, that he probably enjoys looking at more than any of the others. One is the ball that Ryan Moore played on the 18th hole of his singles match with Lee Westwood. When Westwood conceded Moore’s one-foot par putt shortly after 4 o’clock on that bright October Sunday in Minnesota, the Ryder Cup returned to the United States.
Moore was instantly surrounded by his teammates and never bothered to pick the ball up. Love picked it up for him.
