For the last few weeks Sky Sport have been asking the public to pick their greatest sporting decision, here are the results:
The 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles will welcome the first designated Worldwide Partner in the event’s history following an agreement between Standard Life Investments, Ryder Cup Europe and the PGA of America that will see the global asset management company become a Worldwide Partner to both the 2014 and 2016 Ryder Cups.
The Ryder Cup sails into uncharted waters next October – and not just because, should the meteorological combination of Scotland + autumn x Celtic Manor 2010 hold true, Gleneagles will be battered by so much rain that half the estate will aquaplane up the A9 towards Perth.
Colin Montgomerie has insisted he harbours no bitterness over losing out on the European Ryder Cup captaincy to Paul McGinley, with the Scot even claiming he would be a willing vice-captain at Gleneagles next year.
Paul McGinley would have been forgiven the odd nervous moment in the buildup.
The apparent inevitability of Paul McGinley being named as Europe's 2014 Ryder Cup captain this week has been tempered by a late surge for the post by Colin Montgomerie.
It is a move some will describe as born out of inspiration and others will claim it is one that looks like simply desperation. Either way the confirmation of Tom Watson's appointment as the USA Ryder Cup captain for 2014 has set up the fascinating reality of an emotional return to Scotland.
Another Ryder Cup surprise arrived a week after the stunning scenes which surrounded Europe's win in Chicago, with confirmation that Tiger Woods personally apologised to the rookie players on the USA team for his performance.
An emotionally exhausted José María Olazábal has ruled out continuing as Ryder Cup captain, saying there are "eight or nine candidates" who could replace him for Gleneagles in two years' time.
Gene Wojciechowski of ESPN will not want to look back at his article on the eve of the greatest comeback in sport for a very, very long time.
