Rome just got a bit more Murica'd

GM. This is Easy Pars. The golf newsletter that’s always “business in front, party on the back nine.”

Here’s what we’ve got for you today:

  • The mullets are ready.

  • The Solheim Cup stays in Europe, but it was a close one.

  • The Ryder Cup starts this week!

Never underestimate the power of a mullet.

Love em or hate em, you can’t deny that mullets are downright powerful.

For one, the mullet has been around for over 50 years!

It’s been used by countless professional athletes in just about every sport.

And if you’re rocking a mullet, you’re letting everyone know you’re bringing it.

Brooks Koepka and Sam Burns know about the secret power that lies in the mullet.

That’s why they’re locked and loaded with theirs just in time for the Ryder Cup.

Check out these posts from both of these Team USA players.

Sam and Brooksie are ready to rock and bring the Ryder Cup home.

Technically, it was a tie.

Team US and Team Europe tied 14-14 in the Solheim Cup.

And since there’s no matchbreaker, tiebreaker, or playoff of any sort, the defending champion keeps the cup.

Is this fair?

How difficult could it be to play a few extra holes to break the tie?

Just imagine how awesome a Sudden Death-style finish at a Solheim Cup would be!

Ties don’t happen that often, all the more reason to make a tiebreaker something truly special, IMO.

Nonetheless, the golf this week at the Solheim Cup was spectacular.

Team US started off strong and took an early lead.

As the tournament progressed, team Europe made up the lost ground and Carlota Ciganda beat Nelly Korda in a super tight match that ultimately got the 14-14 tie for team Europe.

It was awesome. Just saying it would’ve been cool to see it not end with a tie.

“There’s no other place where you can experience something like that.” Rory McIlroy

Is there anything more exciting than the Ryder Cup?

Serious question.

What is it about team play, in a traditionally individual sport, that makes it that much more special?

Is it the camaraderie between the golfers? Is it because all of them are fierce competitors? Is it because they’re playing for something bigger than themselves?

We don’t have the answer, but check out this video with Rory where he goes into why the Ryder Cup is so amazing to play.

That nearly brought tears to my eyes.

Needless to say, there’s something very special when two of the best golfers in the world play against each other.

And this Thursday, we’re getting to experience it once again.

Here’s a breakdown of the schedule, just in case you need to call in sick on Friday.

We’re pumped.

Brooks, when his wife said to get a haircut:

That’s it for today. Do we still have time to go get a mullet?

Later gator,
