Phil Mickelson was reduced to spectating after Tom Watson chose not to send out the lefty on Saturday at the Ryder Cup.

Most people call it the Ryder Cup. Sadly it has been transformed into Psychology 101.

Never have so many golfers exposed their raw feelings, emotions and inadequacies. Never have so many golf fans attempted to psychoanalyze captains and players alike.

Short and sweet, do we really want the truth about the Ryder Cup? The truth is that the format is flawed.

What's the difference between the Ryder Cup and the Presidents Cup, other than the nationalities and the fact that the United States has not lost the Presidents Cup since 1998?

The difference is that all 12 Presidents Cup ...

Team Europe's strong Ryder Cup performance has been overshadowed, at least stateside, by U.S. fallout.
Team Europe's strong Ryder Cup performance has been overshadowed, at least stateside, by U.S. fallout.

An 11th-hour Webb Simpson for Bill Haas captain’s pick swap? Tom Watson outwardly degrading his players? High confusion and misdirection in the team room? Players with no say on pairings? A "MickMutiny" in the post-tourney presser?

Why, who needs to set the DVR each afternoon to “Days of Our Lives” when we have a real-life reality show that is the U.S. Ryder Cup team? We had everything but Kim Kardashian anchoring the Sunday singles.

Though we still have yet to exchange our leftover British pounds for U.S. currency (and we’ll get whacked good there, too), here ...

OPEN LETTER FROM TOM WATSON, 2014 U.S. RYDER CUP CAPTAIN

In response to all of the recent discussion about our Ryder Cup loss, I would like to make a few comments.

First, I take complete and full responsibility for my communication, and I regret that my words may have made the players feel that I didn’t appreciate their commitment and dedication to winning the Ryder Cup. My intentions throughout my term as Captain ...

Tom Watson during his captaincy of the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in Scotland.

Nearly a week after the final putt dropped at the 40th Ryder Cup in Scotland, the competition continues for a battered and beaten American team. Only this time it’s not about birdies and bogeys but setting the record straight regarding dissension and turmoil.

PGA of America officials released a statement Saturday night from captain Tom Watson, who said, “In hindsight, whatever mistakes that were made were mine. I take complete and full responsibility for them.”

He further said that he had spoken with Phil Mickelson, who leveled criticism toward the captain’s style at a post-tournament press conference.

“I ...

Sources say Bill Haas, left, was a Ryder Cup captain's pick by Tom Watson before Webb Simpson got the spot in a late reversal (Haas and Simpson shown during the 2013 Presidents Cup).
Sources say Bill Haas, left, was a Ryder Cup captain's pick by Tom Watson before Webb Simpson got the spot in a late reversal (Haas and Simpson shown during the 2013 Presidents Cup).

Less than 24 hours after having decided on his captain’s picks for the Ryder Cup, Tom Watson changed his mind regarding Bill Haas and opted instead for Webb Simpson, sources familiar with the decision told Golfweek.

An impassioned plea from Simpson proved to be enough to get Watson, who had decided on Keegan Bradley, Hunter Mahan and Haas, immediately after the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship on Sept. 1 to flip for Simpson.

Ultimately, the Americans lost to Europe, 16.5-11.5, at Gleneagles, Scotland, for a third consecutive loss in the biennial matches and the eighth ...

U.S. Ryder Cup captain, shown here with Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson, is said to have ripped his American squad during a team-bonding session the night before the U.S. lost the Ryder Cup, according to ESPN.com.
U.S. Ryder Cup captain, shown here with Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson, is said to have ripped his American squad during a team-bonding session the night before the U.S. lost the Ryder Cup, according to ESPN.com.

When Phil Mickelson criticized U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson following the Americans' defeat at Gleneagles, it came after a team-bonding session the night before in which Watson ripped U.S. team members, according to Bob Harig of ESPN.com.

The report cited four sources who witnessed what happened in the U.S. team room that Saturday night and said that, "Watson took no responsibility for any shortcomings, scoffed at a gift that the U.S. team members gave him, ridiculed several European team players and started the proceedings by denigrating the Americans' play that afternoon."

"You could have ...

Andy Miller, the 36-year-old son of NBC golf analyst Johnny Miller, accepted a sponsor exemption into the tournament, which will be held Oct. 9-12 at Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course and kick off the 2014-15 season.

“It’s hard to pass up an opportunity to play on your home course and in your backyard,” said Miller, who grew up near Silverado's 11th hole and lives 60 yards from the eighth tee.

Tait: U.S. Ryder Cup captain system is flawed

From left: Jim Furyk, Tom Watson and Matt Kuchar at the 2014 Ryder Cup.

If the United States wants to win back the Ryder Cup then the PGA Tour needs to copy the European Tour and take more control of the match, especially when it comes to the captaincy.

Phil Mickelson’s very public execution of Tom Watson’s leadership should be a catalyst for change. It’s time PGA Tour players picked their own captain, instead of having one foisted upon them by the PGA of America.

Quite why the PGA Tour doesn’t exert more influence over the Ryder Cup is a mystery. The European Tour realized years ago that it had ...

Rory McIlroy and his father, Gerry, will tee it up together at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.
Rory McIlroy and his father, Gerry, will tee it up together at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

For fans of the annual AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, there’s no need to wait till February to see the pros and celebrities mix it up. Get up early this week and turn on Golf Channel to watch the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

It may lack the rich history of the annual affair on Monterey Peninsula, but it could be argued that “the Dunhill” is just as flavorful of a pro-am. Heck, with The Old Course at St. Andrews as the anchor, and Carnoustie and Kingsbarn in the rota, it’s a quality attraction.

With the Ryder Cup victory behind him, Paul McGinley will turn in his captain’s bars and return to competitive duty, joined in the field by four of his players from the winning European team: Rory McIlroy, Stephen Gallacher, Martin Kaymer and Victor Dubuisson.

McIlroy’s amateur partner will be his father, Gerry.

While the world’s No. 1 will draw much attention, this pro-am – much like the one at Pebble Beach – offers plenty of other options for spectators. Heck, it even will feel like the Pebble Beach pro-am, what with comedian Bill Murray (alongside Thongchai Jaidee) and singer Huey Lewis (paired with Peter Uihlein) teeing it up. Musician Don Felder of the Eagles will play with Sandy Lyle, and legendary Olympic champion skier Franz Klammer will be there, as he is every fall.

Want more American flavor? David Duval is paired with former Vice President Dan Quayle, and Ryan Palmer will partner with financier Ogden Phipps II.

WINLESS SKID: Rickie Fowler has joined Justin Leonard as the only Americans to go without a victory in their first eight Ryder Cup matches. Fowler was 0-2-3 this year and 0-1-2 in 2010. Leonard made his Ryder Cup debut in 1997, going 0-2-2, then in 1999 he went 0-1-3.

The match that stretched Leonard’s winless skid to eight is one for which he is cemented into the record books, the infamous party scene on the 17th at The Country Club at Brookline, Mass., in 1999. Leonard’s long birdie putt put him 1 up against Jose Maria Olazabal, meaning he had secured at least a half-point, which is all the U.S. needed at the that point.

What gets lost in the story, however, is that Olazabal won the 18th to halve the match, meaning Leonard was 0-3-5 in his Ryder Cup career at the time.

He finally broke through for victories in his first two matches in 2008.

Fuzzy Zoeller won his first Ryder Cup match, in 1979, then went 0-8-1 spanning his next three appearances.

• • •

GRAB SOME PINE: Perhaps we’re getting a lot more sensitive in this politically-correct world, but much was made of the fact that one player from each side (Webb Simpson for the U.S., Stephen Gallacher for Europe) played just one team match at Gleneagles. This sort of “hiding of players” used to happen all the time, but not so much in recent years.

European captain Jose Maria Olazabal did play Peter Hanson and Martin Kaymer just once each in team games in 2012, and Europe's 2008 captain, Nick Faldo, got Oliver Wilson in the lineup for just one team game.

The U.S., however, hadn’t done it since 2006, when Tom Lehman handed three different players just two matches – Vaughn Taylor, Brett Wetterich and Scott Verplank. Taylor that year at the K Club in Ireland didn’t get in until Friday afternoon’s foursomes, by which time the European romp was well under way.

Verplank was none too pleased to sit out the entire first day, then getting just one game on the second day. Going out 12th (he whipped Padraig Harrington, 4 and 3) in a singles game that was pretty much meaningless hardly made for made for a memorable week and it remains a curious move on Lehman’s part, given that he made Verplank a captain’s pick.

When the Bernhard Langer-led Euros romped in 2004, they did so with three players getting just two games each – Paul Casey, David Howell, and Ryder Cup rookie Ian Poulter. U.S. captain Hal Sutton played Kenny Perry just twice.

Sutton two years earlier had played in just two games for captain Curtis Strange, who also played Paul Azinger in the first game, then didn’t get him back into the lineup until singles. The Euros in 2002 gave just one team game to Pierre Fulke, Phillip Price and Jesper Parnevik.

It was 1999, however, where “hiding” players was taken to the extreme by European captain Mark James. With very little confidence in two qualifiers – Jarmo Sandelin and Jean Van de Velde, and a captain’s pick, Andrew Coltart – James didn’t put them in the lineup until singles.

NICE RYDER CUP START: Rory McIlroy has played in all 14 sessions since his Ryder Cup debut in 2010. Though his record is not overwhelming – he’s 6-4-4 – McIlroy has not played on a losing team. Oftentimes for habitual winners, individual records easily are overlooked.

Consider that in his first 14 chances, Phil Mickelson went 8-3-3, but the American side was 1-3 in those Ryder Cups. Lefty is 8-16-3 since that fast start.

Martin Kaymer, Graeme McDowell, Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood have joined McIlroy as the only others who have played on each of the past three winning teams. On the American side, Mickelson, Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar, Jim Furyk and Bubba Watson have been on the past three losing sides.

• • •

SHORT SHOTS: With Gleneagles in the rearview mirror and Hazeltine ’16 well off in the horizon, here is a little of this and a little of that from this year’s 40th Ryder Cup:

• No question that this will go down as Phil Mickelson’s least-favorite Ryder Cup. Benched for both of Saturday’s sessions, he hadn’t played at least four sessions since his rookie year, 1995, when Lanny Wadkins kept him to just three. That Mickelson won all three of them established his credentials for this competition. From 1997 to 2012, Mickelson played eight times, never fewer than 62 holes; this year, he played just 51.

• Jimmy Walker and Rory McIlroy shared the honor of playing the most holes, 84 each, while Justin Rose logged 83, and Rickie Fowler 82.

• Stephen Gallacher played just 31 holes, Webb Simpson 32. It was the fewest holes played for an American since Brett Wetterich played 30 in two matches in 2006.

• Though he has been a key part to seven winning efforts in nine Ryder Cup appearances, Lee Westwood – a 3-and-2 loser to Walker – is just 3-6 in singles.

• Jim Furyk lost for a second straight year ...

Adam Scott and caddie Steve Williams during the PGA Tour's 2014 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club and Lodge in Orlando, Fla.

After ending his association with Adam Scott in September, caddie Steve Williams said that he plans to retire, but would also consider part-time work in 2015, according to The Associated Press.

"(I'm) 90 percent certain it's going to be a permanent break from caddying," Williams, 50, told the AP.

The New Zealand caddie, however, didn't rule out returning to work for his former boss, Tiger Woods, if asked.

"He's definitely someone I'd consider," Williams told the AP. "He's a tremendous talent, but it's hard to say right now because it's only two ...
