Ryder Cup Predictions and Analysis

Sep 20, 2016

Golf in South Florida, as well as all over the world, was put on pause briefly to keep an eye on the Ryder Cup this year, and the Ryder Cup Predictions are now in! The 2016 Ryder Cup will be hosted at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota from September 30 to October 2. Although the Ryder Cup is not considered a major competition, for a lot of golfers and golf fans, it signals the end of the season. What a season it has been this year!

Deciding who may win during this year’s Ryder Cup predictions is proving difficult because of how erratic most of the major tournaments have been this year. Golf in South Florida was a major part of some of the big name tournaments including The Honda Classic and the Cadillac Championship, which were both taken by Adam Scott.

If you had seen the Ryder Cup predictions in April, the list may have included names like Bubba Watson and Jordan Spieth. In fact, most lists would have put both players in contention for the winning title. However, after Jordan Spieth’s Augusta performance left him completely out of the running for any titles, and Bubba Watson’s performance had landed him in place 19 worldwide, it seems the Ryder Cup predictions have been completely wrong.

The Ryder Cup is next week, which means you can enjoy your golf in South Florida while keeping your eye on these players:

Jason Day

Jason Day has been on fire for the past few rounds and does not seem to be cooling! Due to the fact that he did not attend the Olympics, Day is rested and ready for the Ryder Cup. He may just even be the player to take it home this year.

Rory McIlroy

There has been strong speculation that McIlroy will be the winner this year, and most predictions point out that his strong drive from the tee will likely put him ahead of the competition.

Dustin Johnson

It is unlikely that Johnson will win this year facing off against such strong competition, but he has won another major tournament in 2016; thus, he is likely to make it in at least the top five for the Ryder Cup.
