Anyone watching Ryder Cup

on TV? Hubby watching and the American team fans are an embarrassment. Yelling noisily, booing when European players approach the tee and looking drunker by the hour. What happened to the Gentlemen's game?

5. If they had to go through the torture march

That was the US Open in 2011, almost a mile from the shuttle dropoff to the front gate...

Then I'm not surprised that some lubricated the first chance they got.

6. As opposed to the ex-tournament

As a volunteer, I got to drive up to within 50 yards of the gate, go through another 100 yards to the volunteer tent...

And the USGA Girls's junior treated us even better, free parking for the shuttle to maybe 30 yards from the volunteer tent to check in, shuttling back and forth from scoring spot and a meal ticket in the ballroom thereafter...

Sorry I missed it.
