you guys deserved it. Garcia bottled it.

Just shows you though that whatever the yanks do, they just never fail to display a complete lack of class..

Boo Weekly- redneck hick that no sane man would ever get tired of slapping his fat frame

Kim- great player, but all this crowd hollering etc just sums up what is wrong in general with the USA. A lack of respect for everyone, hence their global stature as the most hated country.

Personally in my opinion i think that Faldo got it wrong playing Garcia first. He should have, given the form, Karleson first.

Saying that, USA were better all round and i agree that they performed as a team better without the woods circus in town

You forgot.. USA the most powerful country in the world as well. If you judge everyone in the US by how some act at a sporting event, you would really shame others by going to a soccer game or better yet, Rugby :)

given the state of its economy/healthcare/foreign policy/war on terror your comment is somewhat worrying to global stability.

Golf is a sport of gentlemen, where honesty, integrety and sportsmanship is at the forefront of the very foundation of the game.

The true greats of the game would be totally distraught at the way some of the US players and crowd act. To the majority though, it is to be expected as they have no respect for the game or the history of the game.

How would they? America HAS no real history in general of note. And i wouldnt expect the majority of yanks to know how to behave at global events when the vast majority dont even have a bloody passport.

frightning country, frightning people, frightning world...not bad golfers though..and pie eaters

All the crowd wasn't from just the US.. perhaps you weren't watching that closely. I know too well about the game of Golf, the sportsmanship and ethics. I have raised a very fine young son who is a Golf Major and in the PGM program so don't speak for all of them. Your replies to me clearly indicate exactly the rudeness that is expected though. Afterall, you have a reputation for it. If the US has no respect for the game, why is it we have more here than in any other country and we have the best golfers and reputations around ? Relax and you will feel much better later :)

Couldnt agree more.....what a fat twat that bloke is......Reminded me of some kind of mechanical toy bear every time he raised his arms to gee the crowd up.....

As for Kim.....well, someone should have slapped him around the head with a 9iron ....what an annoying little shite he is !

Am disappointed Europe lost, but not for Faldo, who is so far up his own backside its untrue, and clearly believes he a super star. Listening to his opening ceremony speech, you would have thought the forthcoming three days were to be all about him.....!!!
