The European and American teams got together to celebrate the end of the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles Hotel on Sunday night. There was no shortage of alcohol and things got a little weird. Rory McIlroy posted the above photo of himself with Stephen Gallacher on his Instagram, wearing a wig and tartan kilt — oh, and he was shirtless.

When I looked up at the scoreboard sprawled across the front of the media center Saturday morning, I wasn’t immediately sure which group to follow. The fourball matches were all on the front nine still and my plan was to catch one as they made the turn.

About 15 minutes later, it became brilliantly obvious when I saw the flurry of red numbers posted in the opening match between Europe’s power duo, Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson, and America’s odd couple, Bubba Watson and Matt Kuchar — they were all square as they headed to the back nine, not to mention they were obviously playing very well.

Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose were an unbeatable duo on day one of The Ryder Cup. In the morning fourball, they crushed Watson and Simpson 5&4. In the afternoon foursomes, they were AS through 14, and continued their dominance with a 2&1 victory over Mahan and Johnson.

While American captain Tom Watson continues to play coy about Friday’s pairings, it appears as if they’ve already been long decided. The U.S. Ryder Cup team went out in the same three set of foursomes in Wednesday’s practice round as it did on Tuesday. Playing from the ninth tee in the morning, the first group out for the Americans included Zach Johnson, Hunter Mahan, Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson.

It didn’t take long for Billy Horschel to make up for his chunked 6-iron into the hazard of the 72nd hole at the Deutsche Bank Championship a week earlier. Horschel shot a final-round one-under 69 at Cherry Hills to capture the BMW Championship, his second career victory, by two shots over Bubba Watson.

Many people are disagreeing with Bubba Watson’s decision to forgo the long drive competition on the 10th hole at the PGA Championship. Watson hit a 3-iron, and said in the pre-tournament press conference, “There’s no reason to make something up in the middle of the practice round like that. That’s just me. Like it or not, that’s just who I am. That’s just what I think.”

All eyes will be on world no. 2 and Champion Golfer of the Year, Rory McIlroy

With the exception of any withdrawals prior to the first round, it would be the first time any major championship would feature each of the top 100 world-ranked golfers.

What are the players saying at the 143rd Open Championship? Many have talked about putting a 2-iron in their bag to fight the windy conditions, and how the course is playing compared to the ’06 Open at Hoylake. On Thursday, we will see which course strategy works the best, but for now, it’s all about the quotes.

Bubba Watson is playing Pinehurst No. 2 for the first time, and he plans on hitting a lot of fairways, “I think it’s funny, me and my caddie or maybe more me, but you can’t define where the fairways are, so I guess this week I can hit a lot of fairways because we can’t define if it’s on the fairway or not. So that’s pretty good for me.”

Where to begin? It was a rollercoaster of a Sunday, with a tightly packed leaderboard of big-name contenders — including Masters champions Bubba Watson and Adam Scott — that shined before crashing and falling out of the mix as they came down the stretch. In the end, it was the 22-year-old star from Japan, Hideki Matsuyama, who upstaged everyone and beat Kevin Na in the first extra hole in the sudden death playoff.
