Ten Tenuous Ryder Cup Links to Energy

With the Ryder Cup kicking off, here’s my attempt to link energy to the Ryder Cup in ten tenuous tidbits: 

1) Utility – both a company who provides energy, and a golf club for any occasion.
2) Green – the dance-floor aka the putting surface. Oh, and the future of energy!
3) Jigger – an old-school golf club for chip-shots, and a device by which coal is cleaned by water. 
4) El Niño – a climate pattern which has a big influence on the frequency of hurricanes, and the nickname of vice-captain Sergio Garcia. 
5) Coal – Wales, the venue for the latest Ryder Cup is most famous for rugby, sheep, and coal-mining.

6) Ian Poulter – a livewire on the US circuit.
7) Louisville, Ky – hosts both one of the finest Ryder Cup venues and one of the finest Energy Consultants!  
8) Sustainability – 90% of materials arriving at the Ryder Cup site will be reused or recycled, and the Tented Village will be entirely powered by recycled vegetable oil
9) Power – Dustin Johnson is your man; the longest driver in this Ryder Cup.
10) Energy – though it pains a European to say this, the deciding factor of this Ryder Cup may be the terrific energy of captain Corey ‘Bulldog’ Pavin.

Whatever the result, enjoy your Ryder Cup!
