Our boys almost made me feel sorry for the Yanks as they dominated from start to finish.
And there couldn’t be a bigger contrast in the captains with Paul McGinley getting almost every call right while Tom Watson seemed distant and out-of-touch.
McGinley is a keen West Ham supporter so is overdue a major trophy.
Now we can claim the Hammers have won a World Cup and a Ryder Cup.
There’s some intriguing matches to pick from this weekend with a lot of games complicated by sides being in European action.
Now usually I haven’t got much time for professional footballers complaining about being tired after a trip to the continent.
But even I felt a bit jaded on Monday after a hard weekend of golf, red wine and Super Bock in Portugal.
We’ll leave the big games alone and try and make our money this weekend with a simple home win double.
Swansea entertain a Newcastle side who are rooted to the bottom of the table in apparent disarray.
While West Ham welcome back Harry Redknapp and his stuttering QPR side.
I’m sure Rio Ferdinand will get a great reception – not so sure about ‘Arry.
West Ham should have too much for the Hoops and a double with Swansea to see off the Toon looks a decent punt at 5/2.
