Off the Tee: FedEx Cup Playoffs Continue, Ryder Cup Selections, Nike Pulls Out
Talk about a win-win situation.
Not only did Patrick Reed vault to the top of the PGA's Fed Ex Cup Playoff standings with his one-stroke victory at The Barclays tournament, the win also propelled him from eighth to fourth on the Ryder Cup points list, assuring him a spot on Team USA in Minnesota this month.
In this edition of 'Off The Tee', Joel Harrington from 4 Deep Golf blog talks about Reed's victory at Bethpage and more.
Among the other topics covered:
- Another Rickie Fowler meltdown. This one at The Barclays could cost him a Ryder Cup spot.
- The second stop of the Fed Ex Cup Playoffs is TPC Boston for the Deutsche Bank Championship. Joel tells us what to expect from this Arnold Palmer designed course.
- The European Ryder Cup team is locked in. Who's one the bubble for Team USA?
- After a decade, Nike Golf has decided to 'transition out' of the golf equipment business, and will return to just selling footwear and apparel. Joel says this move says more about the game than it does about Nike.
