Bradley Jimenez

Here’s something you hardly ever see in golf: Two players getting into a heated argument and almost coming to blows.

Well, that’s what happened on Friday afternoon at TPC Harding Park between Keegan Bradley and Miguel Angel Jimenez on the 18th hole of their match at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

Forget it………

A group of pretty good athletes hung out while they were on vacation in Baker’s Bay in the Bahamas this week. Michael Jordan, winner of six NBA Championships and Tom Brady, four-time Super Bowl champion — quite arguably the greatest of all-time in their respective sports — got together with Keegan Bradley, who has won one major championship, and Luke Donald, who has placed in the top 10 at a TON of tournaments, teed it up for some golf, as you can see in the photo above.

(Aside: T-shirts, guys [with exception of Donald]? How do we feel about that on the golf course? I don’t really care. I was just more shocked at the sight of it since it’s become so weird to see people not wearing polos on a course. I guess when you’re at uber-uber-exclusive places, any attire flies — or you buy the right. Whichever.)

The first tee in your first Ryder Cup can be one of the most pressure packed experiences in a golfer’s career. However, 24-year-old Victor Dubuisson was paired with his brother from another mother, Graeme McDowell, and they took down American stars Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickelson 3&2 in afternoon foursomes.

The Captains have set their lineup for the Friday afternoon foursomes and the matches have also been determined. For the few of you not familiar with this format, foursomes is the fancy word that golf’s powers-that-be or someone in Scotland decided to call “alternate shot.” It’s the most entertaining to watch and the toughest to play. It’s the format that really turns golf into a team sport. Simply, it’s awesome.

But I digress. Here are the pairings/matches for the second session in the 40th edition of the Ryder Cup.

The wait for the 40th edition of the Ryder Cup to kick off is almost over as Captains Tom Watson and Paul McGinley announced their pairings and match-ups for the opening fourball session on Friday morning. Exciting! Here’s how the line-up looks:

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.

American Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson announced his wildcard picks in a glitzy press conference in New York City the day after the conclusion of the Deutsche Bank Championship. Just a day earlier, Billy Horschel had the chance to tie clubhouse leader Chris Kirk with a birdie on the par-5 18th, but he chunked his second shot into the hazard guarding the green (and it was so bad that it almost came up short). That probably didn’t give Watson the best impression of Horschel.

However, less than a week later, Horschel redeemed himself with a two-shot victory over Bubba Watson at the BMW Championship. That likely caught Watson’s attention, but unfortunately, it was a few days too late. Or maybe it wouldn’t have. After all, he didn’t pick Chris Kirk, who played alongside the world no. 1 Rory McIlroy over the weekend at TPC Boston and came out victorious at the DBC. So perhaps it still wouldn’t have been enough to sway Watson (though it should’ve)

At a glitzy (slow-played) press conference at 30 Rockefeller in NYC, American captain Tom Watson revealed his three wildcard picks on Tuesday evening, deciding to go with a mixture of experience and form as he named Keegan Bradley, Hunter Mahan and Webb Simpson to round out the underdog U.S. team.

The trio join the nine players who automatically qualified for the squad based on points —  Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, Jim Furyk, Jimmy Walker, Phil Mickelson, Matt Kuchar, Jordan Spieth, Patrick Reed and Zach Johnson.

Tomorrow’s press conference will be of utmost importance for the players who failed to automatically qualify for Team USA. At 7pm ET, Captain Tom Watson will select the final three Americans, and his decision is easier than everyone thinks.

The Deutsche Bank Championship isn’t just the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs. It’s also — perhaps more importantly for a handful of players — the last chance for guys in the running to impress U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson before he announces his three wildcard picks next Tuesday, September 2nd. In other words, it’s a big week for those hoping to get a phone call on Monday evening.

Among those names are Keegan Bradley and Webb Simpson, both of whom are off to sizzling starts at TPC Boston.
