I cannot begin to understand how it feels to endure the kind of pressure that golfers like Martin Kaymer and Steve Stricker faced late Sunday with the Ryder Cup on the line and the whole world watching. But I’m betting that, after that clinching putt goes in and your whole world goes nuts, it feels pretty darn good to sit by yourself for a minute in the locker room and just let it all sink in.

Congrats to the players on both teams, who once again made the Ryder Cup the single most compelling event in all of sports.
