Truth & Rumors: Missing the Ryder Cup still 'kick in the teeth' for Mahan

Posted at 11:40 AM by Mark Dee | Categories: Hunter Mahan, Ryder Cup, Truth & Rumors

Hunter Mahan, who was left off Davis Love III's Ryder Cup team in September, can't escape questions of his snub, especially after the American collapse at Medinah in which two of Love's picks (Steve Stricker and Jim Furyk) underperformed.

Mahan says missing the Cup still stings, according to a Reuters report:

"At the end of the day, I wasn't playing as well as the other guys, I've got no one to blame but myself really," he said in a teleconference on Thursday ahead of his participation in next week's Thailand Golf Championship.

"When you've made the last five teams, you know how much fun it is, you know how much you enjoy the process, hanging with the guys and playing the practise and so on.

"And when you're not there, you know what you're missing and it sucks. It feels like you let yourself down in a way. It definitely kicks you in the teeth a little bit."

His words seem pretty diplomatic given the catastrophic collapse of Love's team, especially since Furyk's putt at the last may have been America's worst Ryder Cup moment sinceā€¦Mahan's chip in 2010.
