As of this week, four Europeans — Martin Kaymer, Lee Westwood, Luke Donald and Graeme McDowell — occupy the top-four spots in the world rankings and it doesn’t appear that’s going to change any time soon. Of course, golf is rather cyclical and the Europeans happen to be going through a dominant stretch, but I couldn’t help but wonder if there’s a particular reason for the rise of the Europeans and the implications it has on American golf. I mean, what are they feeding those guys across the pond?
“We’re just in a hot patch,” said McDowell after Wednesday’s pro-am at PGA National. “It says a lot about how healthy golf is right now.”
