Dr. Joe's Note: Ryder Cup Final Thoughts
September 22, 2008
 Paul Azinger's work as captain of the American team had a powerful impact on his players' state of mind. He got them ready to play, and they defeated a European team that was better on paper. Look at the cast of characters and you can see why Zinger's down-home pump them up, no fancy frills approach worked. Just ask Boo Weekley.
Uncharacteristically, their team's top players didn't perform well. Padraig Harrington had been a bit off his game in recent weeks, Sergio wasn't feeling 100%, and Lee Westwood didn't make a charge. Those are the Euro's top players and account for a lot of points when they don't win.
Nick Faldo got his two picks to play well, Poulter especially. One can only wonder whether having Darren Clarke on the team would have give the boost in energy that they needed to offset Azinger's "13th man," the energetic support of the fans.
