We’ve all had those moments when we’re talking, say something that we probably shouldn’t have and then want to physically reach out to pull the words back into your mouth. Davis Love III might be feeling that way for the next few days as the hype around the Ryder Cup reaches a fever pitch. On Friday, he tabbed his team as the “best ever.”
The U.S. captain and his squad had enough pressure on them having gone winless in the last eight playings of the matches, but this just adds a little more heat on the Americans. The problem was that this was self-inflicted.
European veteran and expert pot-stirrer Lee Westwood took the quote as another opportunity to give the needle to his American counterparts on social media.
No pressure there then lads! https://t.co/vNA9FyGDMB
