Victor Dubuisson seemed destined to be a Ryder Cup superstar, but things haven't quite out that way. Mark Townsend tried to find out just what went wrong for the Frenchman
“I knew he was good. I didn’t know he was this good. Whatever small part I’ve played in getting him ready this weekend, I’m proud of that. I hung around and I let this guy go. What a superstar he’s going to be and what a superstar he’s been.”
These were the words of Graeme McDowell after banking a second foursomes point alongside Victor Dubuisson at the 2014 Ryder Cup. On day one, Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley, with their 100% record through their first four matches starting in Medinah, got the treatment and were subsequently ‘benched’ the whole of Saturday. Cue part of the reason for Mickelson’s infamous outburst on the following night.
