Napa, California – The 2016 Safeway Open had the potential to be one of the most watched events on the tour this season.  Now it’s just the opening event of the 2016-2017 PGA Tour Schedule.

2016 Ryder Cup Friday FoursomesChaska, Minnesota – 2016 Ryder Cup Friday Foursomes Predictions for September 30th:

2016 Ryder Cup Friday Foursomes – Match One

Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed (USA) vs. Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson (Europe)

Based on past Ryder Cup performance, this sets up well for the Europeans. Rose and Stenson are a combined 6-2-2 in Ryder Cup foursomes play, and were 3-0-0 as a team in 2014. The American duo of Spieth and Reed, meanwhile have never won a foursome’s match.

This edge is offset somewhat by form and health issues. Spieth and Reed were both relatively sharp in the PGA Tour playoffs, both reaching the Tour Championship in Atlanta. Neither Rose nor Stenson qualified for the final stage, Rose due to uninspired play and the big Swede due to injury.

Predicted result – Halve

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – Now that the 2016 Olympic Golf tournament is actually here, it’s time to focus on the players who actually made the commitment to represent their country and not those who chose to stay home.

The majority of coverage leading up to the event concerned the players, who, for various reasons, both legitimate and suspect, chose to forego the event. Included in the group are the so-called “Big Three” of World #1 Jason Day of Australia, Great Britain’s Rory McIlroy and American Jordan Spieth. U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson is also a no show, meaning the top 4 players in the world and six of the Top 10 will not be in Rio when the tournament starts today.

But several of the world’s best players will be in the field at the Gil Hanse designed Olympic Golf course. And one of them will be crowned the first Olympic golf champion in 112 years.

Here’s what you need to know to prepare for the 2016 Olympic Golf Tournament.
