The only week in the golfing calendar where the game becomes all about the collective rather than the individual, at least at the highest level, is finally upon us, and what a week it should be in Wisconsin. The Ryder Cup is back on US soil having last been hosted in the Parisian suburbs of France. On that occasion, the Europeans recorded a resounding victory, one that really hammered home their recent dominance in this event, and one that really hurt the Americans, who will be itching to get revenge at Whistling Straits this week.
It has been a long three years since we witnessed joyous European scenes on the 18th green of Le Golf National after Europe had wrestled back the Ryder Cup from America following a convincing 17.5 - 10.5 victory.
The last time the Americans and Europeans played was in 2018 at Le Golf National, just outside of Paris, where Team Europe beat a lackluster and stale Team USA 17.5 – 10.5 to reclaim the cup. The Europeans have won seven of the last nine Ryder Cups since the Americans' remarkable comeback at Brookline in 1999. So Captain Stricker is under a lot of pressure to find the right vibe and get his ultra-talented team over the hump on home territory.

Let’s break the team down and delve into their strengths and weaknesses.
It's officially Ryder Cup week, and I'm ecstatic. So happy that the typically biennial competition may be competed again after a one-year hiatus — and with thousands of delighted fans littering the gallery in all their patriotic glory. So enthused are two dozen of the world's top players that they will compete fervently for the honor of representing their country and expressing their pride rather than the all-powerful cash.

We begin anew two weeks after the conclusion of the 2020/21 PGA Tour season. The fields are a mix of those who retained their PGA Tour cards last year and those who qualified for the main Tour via the PGA Tour's development tour, the Korn Ferry Tour. This is always an exciting time on the PGA Tour calendar. Trying to figure out who will take the next step forward from this brilliant, mostly young bunch of players is an exciting challenge. The Fortinet Championship (previously the Safeway Open) kicks off the 2021/22 season at Silverado Resort's North Course in Napa, California.
The Fortinet Championship kicks off the 2021-2022 PGA TOUR season in Napa Valley at the Silverado Resort and Spa. The tournament was previously known as the Safeway Open, but Fortinet has replaced Safeway as the tournament's sponsor for the next six years. Although the name has changed several times, Silverado's North Course has been on the PGA TOUR since 1968 and has been sponsored by various companies.
