Replaying the 1971 Ryder Cup with POTG Golf: Team Edition.

I'll be using a house rule on Foursomes, instead of alternating the golfers on a team to use on each hole, a dice roll will determine which golfer is used.

The '71 Ryder Cup was played at the Old Warson Country Club in St. Louis, Missouri.


Great Britain

Harry Bannerman
Brian Barnes
Maurice Bembridge
Peter Butler
Neil Coles
Bernard Gallacher
John Garner
Brian Huggett
Tony Jacklin
Christy O'Connor Sr.
Peter Oosterhuis
Peter Townsend


United States

Miller Barber
Frank Beard
Billy Casper
Charles Coody
Gardner Dickinson
Gene Littler
Jack Nicklaus
Arnold Palmer
Mason Rudolph
J.C. Snead
Dave Stockton
Lee Trevino


Schedule:

Thursday - 8 Foursomes Matches (4 morning/4 afternoon)

Friday - 8 Fourball Matches (4 morning/4 afternoon)

Saturday - 16 Singles Matches (8 morning/8 afternoon)


The United States won the 1971 Ryder Cup by a 18.5 to 13.5 score. We'll see how the replay turns out.

The first match will pair Neil Coles & Christy O'Connor Sr. of Great Britain against Miller Barber & Billy Casper of the United States in Foursomes.

Looking forward to following along. Quite the U.S. team--Nicklaus, Palmer, Trevino, among others. The Nicklaus card is unreal.

Thanks Dave, I hope you enjoy the Matches. Nicklaus is certainly the cream of the American crop, with Snead just a tick or two behind, followed by Palmer and Trevino as you mentioned. Gallacher and Oosterhuis are the best of the British team, but they're quite a ways back from Jack.

Thursday Morning Foursomes

Coles - O'Connor (GBR) v Barber - Casper (USA)

This seemed like two different Matches in one, split almost down the middle. The first 2 Holes were Halved, #1 with Pars and #2 with Bogeys. The Americans took the 3rd with a Birdie to go 1Up. Number 4 was Halved as each team could only manage Par and then the British duo of Coles and O'Connor squared the Match by claiming the 5th with a Birdie. Barber and Casper took the lead right back by winning #6 with a Par to again go 1Up. The US lead didn't last long as Coles and O'Connor won the next 4 in a row to go 3Up. The British team took #7 with a Bogey as the Americans scored a Triple, #8 with a Birdie, and #'s 9 & 10 with Pars as Barber and Casper Bogeyed both Holes.

This is where the second of the two Matches in one started as the 10th was the last Hole claimed by either team, with the next 6 in a row getting Halved. Numbers 11, 12, and 13 were Halved with Pars, with the 14th being split as each team scored a Birdie. When the 15th was Halved with Pars the British team was guaranteed at least a half point. Great Britain took the full point on #16 when that Hole was also Halved with Pars, giving the victory to Coles and O'Connor, 3&2.

actual result: Coles - O'Connor win 2&1

replay:
GBR - 1
USA - 0

actual:
GBR - 1
USA - 0

Thursday Morning Foursomes

Oosterhuis - Townsend (GBR) v Dickinson - Palmer (USA)

Another contest that seemed like two different Matches in one. The first 2 Holes were Halved, the 1st with Birdies and the 2nd with Pars. Oosterhuis and Townsend got on the board first by taking #3 with a Birdie to go 1Up. The next 2 Holes are Halved, #4 with Pars and #5 with Bogeys, with Great Britain remaining 1Up. That lead goes away on the next Hole as Dickinson and Palmer claim the 6th with a Birdie to make the Match All Square. Numbers 7 and 8 are duplicates of 4 and 5, leaving the Match even with 10 Holes to play. Oosterhuis and Townsend give Great Britain a 2Up lead by taking #9 with a Birdie and #10 with a Par. The US has 8 Holes left in which to make up their deficit.

Dickinson and Palmer didn't need all 8 Holes as the Match turned on a dime, with the 10th being the last Hole Great Britain would win. The Americans took 5 out of the next 6 Holes, 4 of them with Birdies, to claim the Match, 3&2.

actual result: Dickinson - Palmer win 2Up

replay:
GBR - 1
USA - 1

actual:
GBR - 1
USA - 1
