Hunter Mahan told US golf journo’s yesterday he might not be watching The Ryder Cup.
"I don't think so," Mahan said when asked if he would watch the matches on television.
Surely that means Davis Love’s son’s decision not to pick him for the US Team is wholly justified. I mean who would want a player on his team who doesn’t even have enough interest in the damn ‘exhibition’ to watch it on television? Who wouldn’t want to watch his best friends in the whole world out there battling for their country against the oppressive old foe that stole some of their top companies for tax purposes, Europe? Come on Hunter.
Oh but hang on, that’s not it. The Hunter says he wont be watching the Ryder Cup because it’s hard to deal with. "It's hard to watch something like that when you've been through it a few times, you know how much fun it is and you want to be there. Once you go to one, you don't want to miss it because you know how much fun they are."
Oh so that’s it. Hunter and all the other kids had big ice-cream cones, and were all happy. Then Hunter’s ice cream slips and falls to the ground and gets covered in stones. Suddenly the fun is over, poor Hunter is crying and for some reason isn’t too keen on watching the other kids eat their ice-creams.
Watch the damn Ryder Cup Hunter. Become a fan again. Enjoy it for what it is. Cheer on your friends. Be inspired by it to get back there. Don’t turn your back on it because your ice-cream is on the ground.
