On the season finale we welcome Doug Brown into the FingerLakes1.com Studio to talk about what America needs to do to win back the Ryder Cup after getting destroyed by the Euros at Gleneagles this weekend.

We round out our Finger Lakes Dream 18 with holes 16, 17 and 18 before asking if the Zen golf approach is all it is cracked up to be.
