GolfWeek Magazine featured an article this week titled “Oh, Ryder Cup, you fill us up.”
The crux of the article was about how the Ryder Cup made golf look cool. From the loud cheers on the first tee while Bubba Watson hit his opening shot with a hot pink driver to the names that dropped in on Medinah to witness the competition last week, golf shed its crusty image and opened the door to a new fan base.
Consider that Justin Timberlake, George Lopez, Bill Murray and Toby Keith joined great athletes like Michael Phelps and Michael Jordan at Medinah.
Only at the Ryder Cup would appearances by two former U.S. presidents get lost in the surroundings.
