I was lucky enough to be a part of, and witness, the 2020 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits as an Assistant Golf Professional. My role included seeing the players both before and after their practice rounds and the matches. It was fascinating to watch the variety of demeanors among the players from both sides. Scottie Scheffler, one of the heroes of the U.S. Team, was visibly nervous. Fellow rookie Patrick Cantlay, showed nothing but calm and focus.
Meanwhile, Team Europe walked through the halls full of energy. Paul Casey actually came up to me and asked: “What’s a cheesehead anyway?” with a smile. They embraced the environment like no other team I have seen before. Every player was so different, and every player was there to win.
The majority of the 2020 Ryder Cup competitors will be taking on Southern Hills Country Club this week. From what I witnessed at Whistling Straits (and since), players to watch include: Scottie Scheffler, Viktor Hovland, Xander Schaffele and Rory McIlroy.
