2010 Ryder Cup: Sir Terry Matthews bent on organizing the biggest event ever- Part II
Colin Montgomerie doesn’t find Sir Terry Matthews’ job of moving a mass of 50,000 up and down the hill tough, rather he finds it sturdy and hard hitting. Monty’s responsibility was to bring up a professional lot that is the best in its form. He considers
this controversial enough.
Sir Terry seems OK with his job. Is it Sturdy? Yes, but it’s straightforward too. When the electronics billionaire was asked to comment, he said that he finds his job this way because it feels like starting from a stark blank page. He argued that the audience
pays a rather hefty amount so they deserve to view the game in a decent manner.
Terry maintained that the ground slopes have been put to good use which couldn’t have been possible without the plus 1000 workers holding up the grandstands for the audience. The all-seeing grandstands are double-deckered and erected on hole numbers 16,
17 and 18 while they also contain two business centers.
If Mother Nature takes a look at what the hill is holding up, she might honor it with the employee of the month award without any doubt. The view from the hill also includes the sight of hole number 14’s action. About the facilities at hand, a total of $50
million has been spent excluding the mammoth resort present at the top of the complex. This facility has set new standards for the 2010 Ryder Cup event and it can’t go back to the 15,000 crowd. Only moving forward is an option.
Meanwhile, it seems as if Wales particularly the Celtic Manor doesn’t want to let down the crowd. The Welsh first minister, Carwyn Jones, finds the stakes too high for the event, comparing it to the 1999 Rugby World Cup when people saw a huge legacy off
the back of it. He said that with the number of audience expected at both the stands and also on the TV, the 2010 Ryder Cup surely represents a league of its own.
Moreover, former Welsh First Minister, Rhodri, termed this event as Wales’ Olympics saying that although, they didn’t make the noise they should have like the Scots and the Irish in the past but still, the necessary racket is now in action.
So, the organizers, management as well as the intended audience all seem excited for the event due to start in a few weeks but will the great light that is expected shine through all the haze? That obviously depends on the weather. Sir Terry, in this regard,
cannot provide the much needed guarantee.
