  10. The 2020 Ryder Cup is probably the last thing on everybody's minds right now, but when it comes to golf, it's almost always one of the first things on mine. It has been one of the primary reasons I was so looking forward to golf in 2020. It's been four years since I've attended a Ryder Cup on American soil. Four years that felt like 14. It's -- in my opinion -- the greatest experience in sports.
