TEAM EUROPE: 46.23pts
Bubba Watson improved his stock as did Furyk and a few others at the Tour Championship. Over the past three weeks, the statistical neutral-course advantage has swung from USA to EUR and now slightly back to the USA.
Neutral-course: ADV TEAM USA
All Factors: ADV TEAM EUROPE
Team Europe had a pretty nice lead coming into the Wales Open, but poor play by Stephen Gallacher, Thomas Bjorn, and Lee Westwood has really weighed down the back half of Team Europe. Perhaps they’ll keep these three on the bench for much of the first two days. Poulter has also been playing poorly, but his 12-3 lifetime Ryder Cup record shows he rises to the occasion, but can he this week?
