Graeme McDowell has warned his European team-mates of the intimidating Customized Browns Jerseys
zyhaa928 task they face when they begin their defence of the Ryder Cup.The Northern Irishman, who so theatrically sealed the win at Celtic Manor two years ago, also rather bullishly revealed which eight he suspects will tee off the tournament for Jose Maria Olazabal's side on Friday.Tiger Woods and US team-mate Jim Furyk have called on the Chicago crowd to give the American team an edge over the three-day contest and while McDowell concedes the partisan support will favour the home team, it is a challenge he is relishing.
"There's a world of difference between playing in front of your home New Cleveland Browns Jerseys
fans and playing in front of the US fans," the Ulsterman said."Putts that drop in front of your home fans are like a bomb going off –and putts that go in this weekend will be like someone's got the silencer on. It's like a muted applause. I remember Valhalla [in Kentucky in 2008]. The 14th was a very big natural amphitheatre and one of the most intimidating holes as a European.
"You knew when somebody birdied – you could hear it reverberating Reebok Browns Jerseys
around the course. There's something interesting about missing a putt and having the cheers go up. That's something we are not used to as golfers, but it's something you've got to accept this week and I'm looking forward to it."I think Davis [Love III, the American captain] wants birdies and eagles to get the crowd fizzed up."Seven of Europe's 12 players have experienced an away match before, including 43-year-old Scot Paul Lawrie, who returns to the side 13 years after his debut in Boston.
Lawrie hit the opening shot of the match that week and there was the first Colt Mccoy Jerseys
indication yesterday that he will be involved in Friday morning action again. The 1999 Open champion was sent out for practice alongside McDowell, McIlroy and Sergio Garcia, while 2008 partners Justin Rose and Ian Poulter were with Lee Westwood and Luke Donald, the pairing which two years ago thrashed American top pair Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker 6&5.That left Francesco Molinari, Peter Hanson and Martin Kaymer, all of whom were debutants at Celtic Manor, with Belgian newcomer Nicolas Colsaerts.
McDowell hinted they may not enter the fray until the afternoon fourballs Josh Cribbs Jerseys
unless someone really shines in the three days of practice."The established partnerships are fairly obvious – myself and Rory, Poulter and Rose, Donald and Garcia, perhaps a Westwood and Lawrie," McDowell added."You can pretty much predict our first eight players Friday morning. You don't need me to tell you that. Will we be that predictable? Who knows?"While McDowell had been very open about possible partnerships for the match, Olazabal said after watching the 12 out on the course: "I'm not going to talk about pairings, seriously.
