I'm already ready for the Ryder Cup but this video got me even more fired up. It's a fantastic look at the 10 best matches in Ryder Cup history. 

The Ian Poulter-Rory McIlroy duo from two years ago is probably the most memorable in recent memory but these are all great -- I forgot about Ben Crenshaw snapping his putter!

Also, that Phil Mickelson thumbs up to Justin Rose is such a great moment. And I don't think I'll ever not get chills at that Justin Leonard puttt.

While we're here, this is a look at what the current teams would look like:


Victor Dubuisson
Jamie Donaldson
Thomas Bjorn
Ian Poulter
Henrik Stenson
Sergio Garcia
Rory McIlroy
Stephen Gallacher
Joost Luiten

Paul McGinley would have to choose three from the likes of Justin Rose, Luke Donald, Graeme McDowell, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Francesco Molinari, Thorbjorn Olesen, Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer, and others.


Jimmy Walker
Dustin Johnson
Bubba Watson
Patrick Reed
Jason Dufner
Phil Mickelson
Harris English
Zach Johnson
Webb Simpson

Then Tom Watson would have three captains picks. That would be tough right now because he'd be choosing from a pool of Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth, Brandt Snedeker, Jim Furyk,  Matt Kuchar, Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan, Bill Haas, and Keegan Bradley.

There's a long way to go but yikes, that's a heck of a list.
