It didn't disappoint
Apart from the comfortable 17-11 score line in the Americans' favour, the 2016 Ryder Cup didn't disappoint. From the USA's Friday morning whitewash to McIlroy and Reed's enthralling ding-dong encounter on Sunday, we were treated throughout the three days.
"I've never seen golf of this quality before"
"We are watching golf you can only dream about"
These were just a couple of plaudits from the commentators during Sunday's play, one of which was from Ryder Cup veteran and 2014 Captain Paul McGinley. The level of golf really was that good. Take Garcia and Mickelson's titanic battle for example; they were a combined 14-under-par for their round - that's a scintillating 58.
Pressure? What pressure?
In what can only be described as a cauldron of emotions, the atmosphere was on the edge all week. Fist-pumps, heckling and shushing aside, the players' ability to produce their best golf in that situation was amazing and is something we can all learn from.
The key to performing under pressure - whether that's the Ryder Cup or in our Monthly Medal - is to have a consistent pre-shot routine. It is probably one of the most overlooked parts of the game, but it really will help to keep you calm and focused no matter the situation.
