Leonard returns to Ryder Cup glory

TheGolfChannel.com recently posted an interesting article about American golfer Justin Leonard. Of course, Leonard was responsible for "the shot heard 'round the world" during America's rally to win the Ryder Cup in 1999 at Brookline Country Club.

Since then, victory has been, for the most part, elusive in Leonard's career. He failed to make the Ryder Cup team multiple times after his terrific save in the 1999 Ryder Club. Even more devastating was his failure to make the 2004 team as he entered the PGA Championship that season requiring nothing less than a victory to earn enough points to make the team. However, Leonard ultimately lost after tying for first place and golfing in a three way playoff with Vijay Singh prevailing.

American Ryder Cup captain Paul Azinger seems glad, at least, to have Leonard as a member of the American squad once again. He said, "[Leonard] has a lot of heart and a lot of moxie. He's going to be fun to have on this team."
