Perhaps the biggest negative about the much-ridiculed – and yet ultimately successful – U.S. Ryder Cup Task Force is that it has served to virtually erase any bit of drama or mystery associated with the naming of the new captain.
Jim Furyk, who will lead the U.S. against Europe at the end of September in France, could be seen as the next U.S. captain from as far away as Chaska, Minn., where the Americans thumped Europe at Hazeltine National in 2016, just their third victory in 11 matches. Furyk, who is fully aware of the pain and suffering the Americans have endured in this competition, was named to the 2018 post just a few months later.
An assistant to captain Davis Love III in Minnesota, Furyk also served under Jay Haas during the 2015 Presidents Cup in South Korea. He served as an assistant last year to captain Steve Stricker in the Presidents Cup; and Stricker is an assistant this year in France, as is Love.
See how this works?
For all the snickering that surrounded the formation of a task force in 2014, it has served an important purpose as far as the U.S. Ryder Cup plight is concerned.
