Is Corey Pavin wrong choice for leading the Ryder Cup 2010 golf team?

(This entry was originally published in this blog December 2008 and it is based on the information of that time.)

On December 11, 2008 Corey Pavin was named the captain of the Ryder Cup team. However, many people did not like this idea. They thought that PGA America made a big mistake by making Corey Pavin, the captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup Golf team. David Moulton, a die hard supporter of Paul Azinger, said that in order to show their power, PGA America made Corey Pavin the team captain. Golf is not a very popular sports in USA and US golf fans forgot about the Ryder Cup. In 2008 the USA team won the Ryder cup for the first time since 1999 under the captaincy of Paul Azinger. Paul Azinger played a big role in reviving the interest about the tournament in USA. The media loves him and golf fans want to see him in action again.

On the contrary, Corey Pavin is no less inferior golfer. Born in Oxnard, California, he attened the University of California and started as a professional golfer in 1984. After winning the Master Card Colonial in 1996, Pavin did not win any major tournament for the next ten years. This led golf critics say that Pavin should quit but he did not and kept pursuing and finally won the U.S. Bank Championship in 2006. Pavin was in the Ryder Cup golf team in 1991 and 1993 and 1995. He has all the qualities to lead the team. After Corey was declared captain, he told reporters that Paul Azinger and he shared a common thing and that was they both loved the Ryder Cup. It was in his blood and if someone cuts his arm then Ryder Cup would just bleed out. He made it clear that his goal is to win the cup again.
