        Speaking as a Chicago taxpayer, events like the Ryder Cup are all about tourist dollars, and not just the dollars the golfer and their fans spent, but the tourists who might come to the area because their friends and neighbors had a good time at the Ryder Cup or because they got good vibrations about the area from the press coverage.

  1. Thanks for sharing this article and video on the Ryder Cup I missed this. Lately it seems that the Europeans don’t need any help. I wonder if Rory would be willing to share a few golf swing for beginners tips? I think that this is the least he could do. Don’t you?
