Readers,

What a summer it’s been on the PGA Tour! We can’t think of a better way to bring the exciting season to a close than with the Ryder Cup.

Cleveland Golf/Srixon is fortunate to have two Ryder Cup participants this year. Keegan Bradley will be representing the United States, while Graeme McDowell will be competing for Europe. Both have had great summers filled with amazing highlights, and both look to be major contributors for their teams this week at Medinah Country Club in Chicago, Illinois.

This year will mark the third Ryder Cup appearance for McDowell, a native of Northern Ireland who has a match record of 4-2-2 after competing at Valhalla in 2008 and Celtic Manor in 2010. You may remember the 33-year-old clinching the Cup for the Europeans with a dramatic singles win back in 2010. With his accurate driving, clutch putting and tenacious attitude, the fiery veteran will surely be one to watch this week.

Bradley enters the Ryder Cup as one of four rookies on the American squad. The 26-year-old native of Woodstock, Vt., is No. 14 in the Official World Golf Rankings, still riding the momentum he gained from winning the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last month. He’s already shown a knack for rising to the occasion in high-pressure situations, so this intense competition may fit his game perfectly. Although Bradley lacks professional match-play experience, two of his three PGA Tour victories have come via one-on-one playoffs.

On paper, this Ryder Cup looks as close as any we’ve ever seen.  You can follow a close look at the CG/Srixon staffers on our @CGSrixonTour twitter acount and we want to know who you’re rooting for! Visit our Facebook page and tell us who you think will bring home the Cup this week!

    As much as I am pulling for the USA in the 2012 RC, I’ve got to give the head-to-head to the man from “No’rn I’rn.” I hope Keegan proves me wrong, but I think Graeme wins the Cleveland Cup.

    If Bradley can control his nerves he has a chance, McDowell isn’t playing well right now this could be a split 1 to 1

    I may be an American but I confess I like Graeme McDowell a lot. Great golfer, Very approachable to fans, all around good guy. He’s got those gun slinger eyes when he plays that cause a few missteps in his opponents, Up the Irish, Graeme wins.

    Keegan dosn’t have the game, nor can he handle the pressure to beat McDowell. Keeghan was a bad pick. He is a flash in the pan, and will fade away. There were better picks avaiable to Love but he is more political then a leader. I want the US to win, but the problem with the American team, is that they think that long driving is the key ingredient, when the short game makes the score. thats where the European team has a big edge.

    While I hope the Americans win, McDowell has already proven himself in the Ryder Cup and I suspect he will have more points than Bradley.

    GO USA !!! Graeme’s 15 minutes is over (actually he had way more than 15 minutes -> U S Open and Ryder Cup performances were brilliant)….pardon me got a little swept up in the emotion that is the Ryder Cup. Keegan will prevail (he’s younger).

    Keegan is the man with the golden touch. He should be victorious over McDowell by 1.

    Bradley will be nervous but will gain support from a strong USA team and will
    beat McDowell in support of a winning effort by the entire USA Team.
