    Rory McIlroy is backing Darren Clarke as the next Ryder Cup captain for Europe.

  • Garmoe’s 73 helps Prospect tie Barrington Sep 30, 2014 8:32 PM
    Robert Garmoe already knew what it was like to be a conference champion, having won the Mid-Suburban League individual junior varsity title as a freshman last year. This season, the Prospect sophomore golfer did it again — but this time on a much bigger stage. Garmoe fired a blistering 73 – a round that included a 35 on the back nine, the only under-par 9 hole mark of the day by any competitor – to win MSL varsity medalist honors Tuesday on a chilly, windy day at Chevy Chase Golf Course. The sophomore’s stellar round help boost the Knights to a co-title, as Prospect shared the team crown with Barrington. The Broncos, led by 74s from Tom Calbi and Cole Kempinski, entered Tuesday’s MSL tourney with 22 total points based on an 11-0 regular season record – but the Knights bested the Broncos at the meet in Wheeling 301-305 to forge a tie for the overall championship.

  • Mikaelian, Libertyville climb to the top in NSC Sep 30, 2014 10:27 PM
    Even the best golfers top a shot, say, once a year. “I do it more often than you’d probably think,” Libertyville’s Simone Mikaelian said with a sheepish laugh. On Bonnie Brook Golf Course’s par-3 No. 3 Tuesday, Mikaelian topped her tee shot, which landed in the bottom of a pond. She carded a rare double-bogey. The best golfers, however, don’t lament topped shots, other bad ones or bad holes. By the end of the North Suburban Conference meet, Mikaelian was the top golfer, topped shot and all. Her 80 earned her the inaugural Marlene Miller medalist honor, as the sophomore finished 1 stroke better than senior Annette Yandall, who was the only golfer representing Wauconda. Led by the 5-foot-3 Mikaelian and other all-conference rounds from Megan Sturonas (88, sixth), Katherine Stegman (93, 10th) and Jessica Lovinger (95, 16th), Libertyville capped off a perfect NSC season by capturing the conference championship with a 356. Stevenson (372), which lost its dual meet against Libertyville on a sixth-score tiebreaker, was second. Lake Forest (377), Vernon Hills (381) and Mundelein (394) completed the top five.

  • Europe wins the Ryder Cup again Sep 28, 2014 3:34 PM
    GLENEAGLES, Scotland — Europe added another layer of Ryder Cup dominance on Sunday behind Rory McIlroy big start, two big rallies and a rookie who hit the shot of his life to give this performance a finish it deserved. Jamie Donaldson, unaware he already had done enough to retain the Ryder Cup, hit a 9-iron that settled 2 feet from the cup on the 15th hole. Keegan Bradley walked onto the green, saw Donaldson’s ball next to the hole, removed his cap and conceded the birdie. And the celebration was on. The result in the record book was Europe 16½, United States 11½. It’s an old story for the Americans. Europe won for third straight time, and now has won eight of the last 10. “It came down to me to close it out, but it’s all about the team,” Donaldson said. “Everyone played their heart out to retain the Ryder Cup. And that’s what it’s all about.” McIlroy, Graeme McDowell and Justin Rose made sure the Americans would not get their redemption from the meltdown at Medinah two years ago as the first team to blow a four-point lead at home. McIlroy was 6-under par on his first six holes and trounced Rickie Fowler to set the tone. The Americans put plenty of red on the board early, just not for long. McDowell was 3-down after five holes and Rose was four behind after six holes. McDowell rallied to beat Jordan Spieth, while Rose earned a halve against Hunter Mahan. Martin Kaymer, who holed the winning point at Medinah, put Europe on the cusp of victory when he chipped in for eagle on the 16th to beat Bubba Watson. That set the stage for Donaldson. “The shot of my life,” he called it. Europe captain Paul McGinley, who spoke all week about a template for success, stood by the 15th green with the rest of the players who had finished their matches. Donaldson was mobbed by his teammates, another happy occasion for Europe. Asked for the highlight of the week, McGinley turned to Donaldson and said, “When you look at a face like that.” He put both hands on Donaldson’s face and hugged him. The Americans still can’t figure out this exhibition of team play. They even brought back Tom Watson, at 65 the oldest captain in Ryder Cup history and the last American captain to win on European soil. Watson made a series of questionable moves during team play and the Americans didn’t have much hope on Sunday. Watson attributed the loss to foursomes — Europe was unbeaten in both sessions and collected seven of the eight points — though McGinley wrote that off as a fluke. Asked what he would tell his team in a final meeting, Watson said, “You played your best, but it wasn’t enough. You’ve got to find out what it takes a little better.” Watson sure didn’t find it. Except for a victory at Valhalla behind captain Paul Azinger in 2008, the Americans haven’t solved this Ryder Cup puzzle. Phil Mickelson, on the bench for both sessions Saturday, finished off a 2-1 week by beating Stephen Gallacher. Asked about the future of the Ryder Cup, Mickelson went back to that last U.S. victory. “We had a great formula in ‘08, and I don’t know why we strayed from it,” Mickelson said. “What Zinger did was really a good format. Maybe we should relive that.” Azinger has said that Watson never asked him about his “pod” system in which the U.S. team was broken into three groups of four players and stuck together the entire week. No team embodies togetherness quite like Europe. The Americans now have to wait two more years — Hazeltine outside Minneapolis is the next Ryder Cup — to figure that out.

  • Europe leads 10-6, closes in on Ryder Cup Sep 27, 2014 4:45 PM
    Justin Rose swept that magical putter into the air before his ball even reached the hole, and he punched his right fist when it dropped for a birdie. Just like at Medinah, the final match in the Ryder Cup on Saturday gave Europe another big boost of momentum going into the last round. Only this time, Europe didn't really need it. Rose capped off a remarkable Saturday for himself and his team. That 6-foot putt on the 18th hole at Gleneagles was enough to give Rose and Martin Kaymer a half-point, giving Europe a 10-6 advantage and leaving it on the cusp of another Ryder Cup victory.
