CHARLOTT, North Carolina. On the American All-Star team, Kevin Kisner was the bottom scorer, but he believes his impact has been felt in other ways as well.

“I got half a point,” he said Sunday night, “but I brought the fun.”

At 38, Kisner was by far the oldest player on the youngest US team in history. On the big, beefy Quail Hollow layout, he only played two of four tag team sessions, drawing four balls with partner Cameron Young and then losing one to Tony Finau.

Kisner was last sent off in Sunday’s singles. According to captain Davis Love III, the move was due to Kisner being one of the best players in match play over the past decade. He ended up losing 2-1 to Christian Bezuidenhout of the International, when the final outcome had long since been decided.

It didn’t take long for Kisner to get over his disappointment.

Early in the winning team’s press conference, Kisner threw an empty Fireball whiskey can into the crowd and was slapped several times by his teammates. Asked about his favorite debut memories, Max Khoma said: “To get close to these guys, we all played against each other all the time – except for Keys, because he played forever.”

Given the youth direction of the American team, this may have been Kisner’s second and last appearance on the team. That’s why he was so eager to bring it to life in the command room on Sunday night.

“Nothing that any of them can do can hook me tonight, I promise you,” Kisner said. “I have never seen the best golfer performance and the worst party animal performance, and I am the best party animal. That’s why they chose me.”
