The Hero Cup

I did want to take a post to mention the Hero Cup.

The Hero Cup teams

I'm sure you all know that the Hero Cup is Ryder Cup Captain Luke Donald's idea to help find the new young bulls for Europe's Ryder Cup team. And I think it's a brilliant idea. Both sides of the Ryder Cup have spent too much time hoping their best players historically will continue to play well — even when history proves that ain't necessarily so. As a result, the up-and-coming young players don't even get a chance to prove themselves.

It's time that changed, and now it will.

The teams are Great Britain & Ireland VS Continental Europe. They play for three days — 5 fourball matches, then two sessions of best ball, and finally 12 singles matches. The first team to 13 points is the winner.

As of this post, after two days of play, Continental Europe leads 8.5 - 6.5 with the singles matches yet to be played.

The final round of the Hero Cup airs live on GC starting at 1:30am ET on Sunday morning. It will be re-aired later in the day, of course, so everyone has a chance to see it. But I hope this becomes an annual event on the DP World Tour. It's way overdue.
