You have to register but you can catch all of it.  I find foursome play fascinating.  Alternating shot between partners -- why does Europe play so much better in this format?  Is it a cultural thing or just a coincidence?

Actually, it's the four-ball that shows the most glaring difference.  I looked it up.  Since '85  US trails 46 1/2 to 65 1/2 in four-ball -- two play own ball and best score counts.  At the same time, foursome  is 53 1/2 to 58 1/2 Euro and singles is 84 1/2 to 83 1/2 USA.  So the big difference has been the four-ball.  Overall, it's been the doubles play in both formats that's been the difference.

Thanks for the link Rim. Since I don't get the extra/premium channels I won't get coverage until tomorrow. Good question on the foursome item, not sure anyone's ever figured that one out, but obviously there's something there.
