    It's a shame common sense can't form part of the game. I think the rules section of the forum will be wetter than an otters pocket with this one.

    One of the internationals (might have been Day) hit a putt where the next one didn't matter. He didn't hole it and it was running past the hole, down hill towards the water so Jordan Speith stopped it, and gave it back to them.

    Rules official intervenes to say the he stopped his opponent's ball in motion, so called a penalty. None of the four players wanted him penalised but rules is rules.

    Handicap: 2.5

    There is a reason why the Fairway Dodger hits it like a girl!

    International had a putt for a half, raced it past the hole and Spieth stopped it in motion to give them the ball back. Got DQd from hole so they lost it.

    Maybe if they DQ'd the whole US team for the current matches the singles might be vaguely interesting. When the US were beating GB&I in the RC it changed to be US v Europe, so does this need changing again before it loses any remaining relevance. Would there be an argument to include some Europeans? I can't see how the International side will ever be strong enough to compete

    Well "ever" is a long time and Asia is a big place. Might be a brave bet....

    Haven't watched any of it, and TBH I see it as just another of the US back slapping things such as the baseball "World Series" that only the home teams can enter.
    Forever trying.

    If I was playing in a matchplay with a pal and he stood and watched my ball drop in the lake I would be bogged off at losing me Dunlop. Seems that common sense is not that common.
