Having won seven of the last 10 encounters, it would have been ridiculously easy for Europe to become complacent about the Ryder Cup. In Nick’s early discussions with Paul McGinley, the pair talked about how the spice and desire to win would wane with every passing victory. This was one of McGinley’s greatest concerns and fears. Because of the importance of the message, this image sat directly behind Paul as he addressed the players in the European Team Room. The main component of the image depicts the goal of the European team holding the Ryder Cup. The secondary background component shows a ticker tape highlighting the overall superiority of the US team in the event over the years.
The purpose of the image was to remind the players that, while Europe has enjoyed a recent period of dominance, we still have plenty of work to do to redress the imbalance of power.
