You know what I thought when I saw Patrick Reed and Bubba Watson trade banter at the Hero World Challenge? I thought that's the kind of 'free pass to mock each other' friendship that we traditionally have had in Europe, but has been lacking in the USA for many years.

For years in the Ryder Cup, Team USA have been carefully walking around that team room carefully trying not to step on egg shells with the likes of Tiger, Phil and all the big egos.

In 2016 Europe will face a team of talkers, a team of mates, a team who can have banter without fear of offending each other.  Watson, Reed, Spieth, Fowler; they all love a bit of chat.

And friends play for each other when the going is tough.  Just my theory!
