    Ryder Cup Captain for 2018 in France.

    Darned good choice. I've always liked him, how he speaks and how he carries himself.

    "Furyk will be in charge of a team that will try to win on European soil for the first time since 1993 at The Belfry. The Americans ended a three-match losing streak last year at Hazeltine with a 17-11 victory. Thomas Bjorn will be the European captain."​

    At the Canadian open he would never sign autographs for kids and told them to wait while he went to get a sandwich and never returned.

    Hey might have been a bad day. My son didn't buy that :rolling:

    Yeah not the biggest fan... No Freddy Couples for sure.

    That's very surprising b/c he's an RBC guy, and the only reason he's even play the tournament is b/c RBC is the sponsor. Then again, maybe he was pissed that he had to fulfill those obligations.

    Have always heard he was a bit of a Richard to the fans. Especially the kids.
