For the third consecutive Ryder Cup, and eighth of the last ten, Europe was victorious over Team USA and it wasn’t really close. In the aftermath, people have been pointing their fingers in a variety of directions in order to find out who to blame for this mess, but in reality, there isn’t one single person or entity to pin this on. When Jack Nicklaus suggested that the Ryder Cup change to invite all of Europe in time for the 1979 competition, the wheels of change were set in motion and what used to be an easy win every two years has now evolved into a chance at competing.

It’s gotten to the point where players like Phil Mickelson are openly complaining about the process during the event, with other players like Billy Horschel and Jason Dufner chiming in on Twitter from their living rooms about what needs to change. What went wrong for Team USA at the Ryder Cup? Just about everything, and to pin this on one individual is not only a mistake, but part of the larger scope of what’s actually wrong when it comes to this event. News flash to all involved with the Ryder Cup this year: you’re all part of the problem and here’s why.
