You may not like golf, or watching golf, or think somehow the Ryder Cup is affiliated with Winona Ryder.
That’s OK, because today’s story about the Ryder Cup championship in Chaska is bigger than golf. It goes like this:
A North Dakota guy is heckling the elite European professionals at the Ryder Cup for missing putts during a practice round. They call him out, challenge him to sink a 10-footer for $100 — and he does it.

Pioneer Press sports writer Brian Murphy IDs the guy as David Johnson from Mayville, N.D.

That is a great golf story. In fact, we can only think of one better:
The North Dakota man may not receive total consciousness, but he picked up an extra $100, so he’s got that going for him, which is nice.
