ESPN's Gene Wojciechowski mocked for Ryder Cup column

By
ESPN sports writer Gene Wojciechowski has been mocked by golf fans after his Ryder Cup column predicted an easy win for Team USA.

Europe trailed 10-6 going into the final day before a remarkable comeback gave them a 14.5 to 13.5 victory in Medinah, Chicago.

Wojciechowski suggested that for Team Europe to win, US golfer Keegan Bradley would have to be abducted and George W Bush, Amy Mickelson and the Rev. Jesse Jackson be drafted into the US side.

He added that Englishman Lee Westwood - who had a poor tournament - would have to become a US citizen and Marty McFly would need to show Team Europe captain José María Olazábal how to go back in time.

"Never mind. It's over. Olazábal can click off the walkie-talkie and take the IFB out of his ear. Time for the Europeans to fire up the private jets and head back home to Florida," he wrote.

"Team USA has the kind of two-day lead that Cup captains pray for. It is as close to insurmountable as trying to climb Mt. Everest wearing a T-shirt, cargo shorts and flip-flops."

After Martin Kraymer's putt secured victory for Europe, Wojciechowski said on Twitter: "Congrats to Team Europe. Wow."

"Gene Wojciechowski. Your boys took one hell of a beating! You got it so wrong," said Nick Trast.

"Oh. Gene Wojciechowski. Whoever you are. You've had a HOWLER," added Josh.

Omar Soliman wrote: "Still not seen the highlights but I do love it when Americans get it abysmally wrong. Tek a boo Gene Wojciechowski."
