    He hit the ball with his stick. It went quite far. The other man hit a ball with his stick. It went further.

    Golf baffles me.

    Harrington sinks a putt for birdie on the 1st. 1up Europe!

    Looking good for Stensson and Casey, about 8ft from the pin, US haven't found the green after 2.

    Looking really good now, Leonard chipped way past the flag. Long par putt for the US, should leave Europe with 2 putts for the win.

    You could boil any sport down to such stupid simplicity.

    Man kicks ball. Ball hits net. Man kicks ball. Ball doesnt hit net.

    May as well just say you dont like sport, in which case dont both posting in a thread about golf.

    Come on Europe, especially Poults!

    But I do like sport. I've just never got into golf. That's why I'm watching the Ryder Cup. You know, live, on telly. I think that gives me the right to comment in this thread.

    Really looking forward to getting home, parking my arse on the sofa with some wine and watching this till my eyes bleed.

    Why would I bother watching it just to slag it off on a message board? Harrington hit the ball. Mickleson hit it about 30 feet further. Am I right? It wasn't an acid flash back. I saw it with my own two eyes.

    I may not know much about what I'm looking at but I don't think I did anything to provoke such a response.

    Good start for Europe.

    Am I the only one who think the EU flag is rubbish? So unimaginitve - I'd love to meet the moron who approved it.

    Think I'll be doing exactly the same mate - my girlfriend is out tonight, so I've got the TV all to myself :)

    Fair enough, but then why open with a patronising comment! You could have just said Golf baffles me but im going to watch it and give it a chance.

    Anyway hope you enjoy it. If you ever give it a go its technically the hardest sport going IMO.

    Looks like the USA might win the third hole in the Harrington match.

    Rose/Poulter off to a good start - Rose puts it in the fairway, Campbell in the rough off the tee.

    For anyone who's not a fan of golf, the Ryder Cup is the perfect way to introduce them to the game. The tension involved throughout is bound to suck them back in for more.

    Good point, it's a lot more exciting being a team event than watching a major last day, unless there's something massive riding on it.

    Boggo has gone back to his usual self in the tennis by the way if anyone is interested, looks like GB is going to lose the first rubber.

    Sorry, but I have no idea what you're on about!

    'Boggo'? 'Rubber'?

    I'm a wanker. I sneer at things I don't understand. I know it's wrong but it makes me feel better;-)

    Alex Bogdanovic, GB no.2 and generally shite, in the Davis Cup relegation play-off against Austria which is currently being played. Handy Andy is playing later.

    BBC Text Commentary: "Europe's ball finishes in the shrubbery"....why cannot I not hear the word shrubbery without finding it funny?

    For those actually watching it, what's the atmosphere like there? Are the crowd up for it?

    Popped my head in the front room to be met with "USA!, USA!". So very irritating.
