I’ve got Friday afternoon off work to watch, Saturday morning I’ll be on Dad taxi duties in the morning, before golf all afternoon/evening. Sunday will be family time before I settle in for the singles - I’m lucky that my wife knows how much I love the event, (she did re-arrange our honeymoon so I could go to Medinah!), so sorts it so I can watch it all.
Well I'm not buying any Ryder Cup clothing that's for sure ....
Heading to Wales tomorrow morning, playing Pennard, then watching golf with the boys and beer. Friday, playing Machynys, then watching golf with the boys and beer. Saturday, golf in Chipping Norton, then watching golf with the boys and beer. Sunday, golf in Chipping Norton and a quick drive home to watch the golf with Mrs Wedge and beer.......
Friday - pumping up 34 footballs in the build-up, enjoy four hours of peace, pick up kids, stuff pasta into them while I try and watch the climax of the foursomes before mood improves when wife gets home to sort bedtime
Saturday - running football for 34 U7s while obsessing about the foursomes order, wife taking kids to Liverpool for afternoon, may well be the highlight of 2021
Sunday - have a 60th birthday lunch of my wife's former colleague at work where I will know two people; one golf bore and and the other I don't even know what they do. Will be clock-watching and not trying very hard socially from 1500 as my mind turns towards what hopefully will be another famous European Sunday
Friday - watch it at home on my own most likely.
Saturday - have one mate coming over to watch it for a few hours with beers, might get another taker but in fairness most of my friends aren't into golf as they're in their late 20s or 30s and don't play it either.
Sunday - watch it at home on my own most likely.
That's a shame, maybe it's easier in Scotland where so many play (it shocked me when I moved to the IoM and nobody at work golfed), but I now (in my 50s) really don't have any close friends who are not golfers, it takes up so much of my time and interest that I'm not much interested in other stuff
Friday - working at home today. Beers are in the fridge ready for me logging off at 1pm. Daughter is coincidentally sleeping out and wife is out for a meal. Fell perfectly.
Saturday - Great day of sport. Early tee booked, home for 12. Setting two tv’s up for the day. Middlesbrough kick off at 12.30 so will be watching alongside the golf. Later on, friends are round for drinks/takeaway and the Joshua fight, with the golf alongside.
Sunday - Charity Ryder Cup comp at the club, representing team Europe. Few pints after. Home in plenty of time for the singles.
Home today, beer, wine and Ryder Cup on the sofa.
Saturday, playing football am then sofa for the afternoon games, local pub with a mate for a couple of hours ryder Cup viewing, another local pub to watch a band until 9 then home to finish watching the golf.
Sunday, playing golf in the morning then cuddling the sofa for the rest of the day with beer and wine and Ryder Cup.
Got Monday booked off work 😏
If the Americans start well and are leading on Sunday, I'll probably not watch any of it.
There's only one thing worse than a smug US Ryder Cup team winning in America, and that's a smug US Ryder Cup crowd winning in America.
I've paid for Sky Sports for a month so I can park myself on the sofa for most of the weekend.
Have managed to get the wife interested in the build-up so she'll join me in my laziness.
Singles don't start until tea time on Sunday so playing first round at new club in the morning.
