Oh, what could've been: We're missing the Ryder Cup a little extra today

  Oh, what could've been: We're missing the Ryder Cup a little extra today Friday would've marked Day 1 of the 43rd Ryder Cup. However, with the matches postponed until 2021, let's take a look at what we're missing.The U.S. side would have spent the weeks before this 43rd edition of the biennial matches dismissing the significance of the 2018 loss and a tide that just doesn’t seem to be going their way. Meanwhile, the Europeans, led by their loquacious captain Padraig Harrington, would have played it coy and dismissed Europe’s domination of the event, only to rattle American cages with subtle tweets (probably from vice captain Ian Poulter) about the need for another “task force.

He drilled a 3-wood from 272 yards and found nothing but the bottom of the cup. Sadly, there’s no video evidence to share of the moment.

It’s the first albatross (or is it called a double eagle?) at the Sanderson Farms since 2010 and just the second one on the PGA Tour this season (Harry Higgs, second round, ninth hole at Silverado’s North Course at the Safeway Open).

“It’s obviously the last thing you’re thinking about with 3 wood in your hand,” Harrington, who signed for 2-under 70, said after his round. “My caddie and I got a good laugh out of it. It’s nice to pick up three [shots] on one hole. It’s pretty cool.”

Albatross or double eagle?

Whatever you want to call it, picking up three strokes on one hole is one of the rarest feats in golf, even moreso than a hole-in-one.

The Double Eagle Club tracks the feat and counts 86 of them by PGA Tour players since 1974, including those made in qualifiers. All but one was scored as a 2 on a par 5 as Andrew Magee (17th hole at TPC Scottsdale in the Waste Management Phoenix Open in 2001) is the only one to make a hole-in-one on a par 4 in the history of the PGA Tour.

The term albatross, according to the Double Eagle Club, is the “continuation of the bird theme in naming all under-par scores related to the size of the bird becoming bigger as the score gets lower; i.e. birdie, eagle, albatross.”

For professional golfers, the odds of getting an albatross are about 72,000-to-1.

After 11 Northeastern students were dismissed for congregating, a chill fell upon campus gatherings.Harrington, 18, said people weren’t making much of an effort to say hello in the hallways since COVID-19 safety protocols restrict freshmen from entering anyone’s dorm room but their own. Worse, she knew that if she found herself caught up in camaraderie and decided to visit someone else’s room, she could be dismissed from school and sent home just as 11 other freshmen were after being found in a hotel-turned-dorm-room on Sept. 4.
